Mike Pryde has joined Grant UK as an area sales manager covering northern England and southern Scotland.
He has more than 20 years of industry experience and will work with G1 installers across the full Grant product range, including Aerona³ air source heat pumps.
He said: “Having worked in the field as an engineer and spent several years on the road in sales, I understand the support that both installers and merchants need from a manufacturer. It is a very exciting time to join Grant UK, with so much growth and expansion in the company.”
Back at its HQ in Devizes, Grant UK has also welcomed two new members of staff. Charles Gillman-Couch and Emily Ryan have joined the company as part of a new trainee initiative programme launched in the spring. Grant UK interviewed a number of students and graduates for two trainee positions with the successful candidates having the opportunity to gain experience in all departments.
Managing Director Paul Wakefield said: “We endeavour to provide continuous personal development for our employees, helping them to progress with their careers. This new trainee initiative has been designed to provide grassroots support for two young people starting out in their careers. It hoped that both Charles and Emily will gain an insight into all of the daily activities here at Grant before choosing the right path for them within the company.”
