Pipe Center and Climate Center have announced the appointment of Carl Jones as regional sales manager, London and the South East. Mr Jones will work across both Pipe Center and Climate Center supporting and adding value to customers through his in-depth technical knowledge.

 His focus will be on new and alternative technologies, areas where he has particular expertise, helping customers adopt new approaches and products to make their business more profitable.

“It’s an exciting time for the industry, particularly with the emerging renewable market and upcoming Green Deal, so I’m delighted to be joining the team,” Mr Jones said. “Along with my sales credentials, I also bring a wealth of people development experience to the table, having been involved in development programmes in my previous role.

“I enjoy helping people become better at what they do and I’ll be working closely with my team and the wider business to share those skills – which should ultimately mean that the customer gets a better service from all of us.”

Mr Jones will manage a sales team of 14 and will report into Geoff Stone, Pipe Center and Climate Center’s Regional Trading Director, London and the South East. He joins Wolseley UK from RS Components, where he was a regional sales manager, selling products to the process manufacturing industry.

Geoff Stone said: “Carl’s insight experience, matching customers with the most effective products and solutions, based on what he learns from other client requirements, should prove invaluable to our customers.

“His appointment will help us build on our market leading positions in the industry.”
