Grant UK appoints two Renewable Business Development Managers

Grant UK has appointed two Renewable Business Development Managers – David Garcia and John Morris – who will provide increased sales support in the renewable market sector.

Throughout 2019, Grant UK implemented a number of changes to the structure of its External Sales Team. These changes were brought about to increase the level of sales coverage the company delivers to all customers, from those primarily involved with oil boilers through to those branching into the renewable energy product sector. With the renewable market consistently developing and rapidly growing, Grant UK has introduced new roles into its Sales Team with two Renewable Business Development Managers.

Joining Grant UK as the Renewable Business Development Manager for Scotland is David Garcia (left), who is highly respected in the heat pump industry. Garcia joined the company in November and brings with him a wealth of experience working with renewables.

Garcia began his career working in an independent merchant, starting in the warehouse through to Stock Controller and then progressing to Trade Counter Manager. After nearly fifteen years in this role, Garcia wanted to get out on the road so he worked as a Sales Manager for a boiler manufacturer for a decade before joining a manufacturer specialising in the renewables market as a Specification and Business Development Manager.

Since then, Garcia has taken similar roles in companies focusing on underfloor heating and air source heat pumps so he has an extensive understanding of what contract and business customers need from heating manufacturers.

In his role at Grant UK, Garcia will be working closely with installers, specifiers and developers who are wanting to work with greener home heating technologies.

Grant UK’s second Renewable Business Development Manager is John Morris (right) who was appointed to this role from within the existing Sales Team.

Morris has worked at Grant UK for over thirteen years, providing sales coverage support to installers and merchants throughout Wales and the bordering English counties. As an Area Sales Manager, Morris has built relationships with customers working with Grant’s oil boiler products and increasingly with those wanting to increase their expertise in renewable energy appliances.

Like Garcia, in his new role as Renewable Business Development Manager, Morris will be working with specifiers, developers and larger installation companies throughout Wales, the Midlands and Northern England.

Morris’ experience with all of Grant’s renewable energy products, from their heat pumps, cylinders, and their expanding heat emitter range, will enable him to provide comprehensive sales support for the company’s complete package heating solutions.

“We are looking forward to further developing our relationships with customers in the heat pump market following the appointments of David and John,” comments Kevin Ellis, Renewable Sales Manager for Grant UK, who provides customer support throughout the South of England.

“Both David and John have a vast amount of experience, not only with Grant’s products but also in the wider market and, with the future of domestic home heating set to change considerably in the next few years, now is the perfect time for Grant UK to adapt their sales support. Between the Renewables Sales Team and the Area Sales Managers, Grant UK’s sales coverage is more extensive across all our products ranges than ever before.”
