Yorkshire-headquartered commercial glazing firm Dortech has appointed Brian Carroll as business development manager, to lead the Group’s sales strategy and more than double the Maintenance division’s revenue to £2m, over the next 12 months.
Bringing with him over 35 years’ experience within the glazing and construction sectors, Brian has worked for a number of architectural glazing firms – in both technical and commercial roles. Prior to joining the Dortech team, he was most recently head of estimating and national sales manager at HW Architectural, where he was responsible for tendering large-scale projects and coordinating and optimising the company’s country-wide sales strategy.
In this new position, Brian is looking after the sales for both of Dortech’s Architectural and Maintenance divisions, with a specific focus on identifying new customers and ultimately boosting the Group’s annual turnover.
Commenting on Brian’s appointment, James Sutherland, Dortech Group’s managing director said: “With rising economic uncertainty and the unexpected closure of businesses, including some of our competitors, it’s been a turbulent year for construction. But it’s great to see an increasing number of companies starting to recognise the financial benefits of planned preventative maintenance.
“With Brian now part of the business, we’re in a strong position to increase our national profile. His extensive knowledge of the sector and the challenges which exist, should hopefully enable us to further improve our competitive edge and maintain our strong marketplace position.
“We’re looking forward to reaching our targets and seeing how we can further grow the Maintenance division over the next 12 months.”
The Dortech Group is aiming to end 2020 on £9m turnover, and the Maintenance division is predicted to account for 20% of the Group’s overall revenue by 2022.
