Hylec appoints Michael Crowther and Tom Rooney to new roles

Hylec has announced it has made two new senior-level appointments. Michael Crowther takes the newly created position of Marketing & New Product Development Director, and Tom Rooney has been named as Sales Director, replacing Steve Robbins.

Crowther and Rooney join Hylec at an exciting time in its continued expansion and will drive new projects to continue growing the successful Hylec brand across all product ranges, including the well-known Debox junction boxes, Weatherproof connectors, and specialist enclosures, as well as Hylec’s very broad range of electrical components for the OEM market and electrical contractors.

Crowther, 41, joined Hylec earlier this month in the newly created position of Marketing & New Product Development Director. Formerly Sales & Marketing Director at Camden Boss, Crowther has spent his whole career in the industry and will be focussing on extending Hylec’s product offerings across its many successful ranges and strengthening brand recognition. He comments, “Hylec has a well-deserved reputation for innovation which I am looking forward to contributing to.”

Rooney joins Hylec as Sales Director from a sales and export background in electrical engineering and the energy sector. With substantial experience in both industries internationally, including Europe, Asia and the Middle East as well as the UK & Ireland, Rooney’s focus will be on maximising opportunities for growth through existing and new Hylec wholesalers and OEM customers. “The electrical wholesale market is very buoyant at the moment” he comments. “Hylec products offer many clever features that competitors’ products don’t have, and we are looking at increasing our market share in a number of sectors.”

Andy Hatter, MD, Hylec comments: “We are delighted to welcome Michael and Tom on board. They both bring a huge amount of expertise to the company and their knowledge will prove invaluable in the next phase of our growth.”
