Flex-R has appointed Simon Blackham to Regional Specification Manager.
Simon has 15 years of experience to bring to the role, most of which was rising through the ranks to become a Specification Manager in the industry.
Simon is excited about joining Flex-R and believes that there’s an opportunity to increase the amount of projects where its range of specialist products, such as RubberBond, Sure-Weld, Enduris and LQD-R, are specified.
“I’ve joined a very ambitious company at a very exciting time, and there are lots of opportunities to get our products specified on some fantastic developments,” said Simon
“I know from experience that some of the high-profile projects currently under construction in my region would benefit from products such as RubberBond.”
National Sales Manager, Danny Cole, welcomed Simon’s appointment:“We are lucky to have recruited Simon because of the experience and knowledge that he brings to the new role at Flex-R.
“The creation of a series of Regional Specification Manager roles across the country will fulfil two key objectives for the business: supporting the company’s tier-one roofing contractors and building links with specifiers and architects.”
Simon’s appointment comes after the High Wycombe-based company opened a second UK depot in Huddersfield in April.
Trading Director, Duncan Winter said: “The strength of our business has always been based on great service and backup, particularly our technical knowledge, which roofing contractors heavily rely on and which is why good people are critical to some very exciting plans for Flex-R.”
“Flex-R now employs 30 people – and as part of its expansion plan, it has already started to fill some of the 10 new roles it is creating in 2018.”
