Salamander Pumps has appointed Nick Bennett as business development manager for the Southern region.

Though from outside the industry, Mr Bennett’s experience in selling business to business and developing effective supply chain relationships is tailor made for the plumbing and heating sector.

“We’re all about customer engagement and fostering close working relationships in all our routes to market,” said Chris Vallance, Salamander’s sales and marketing director. “Nick’s track record in the area really stood out. He will be able to apply all that experience to looking after our existing customers and acquiring new ones based on Salamander’s increasing range offer and growing reputation for quality engineering.”
