ESP has welcomed two Regional Sales Managers to the team. Mike Feist, formerly Area Sales Manager with Scolmore, takes up the position of Regional Sales Manager for ESP’s South region, whilst Chris Cotton has been promoted from Areas Sales Manager to the position of Regional Sales Manager for the North region.
Mike joins the ESP sales team with a wealth of experience, having spent over 30 years in the industry. He takes up his new role following 12 years with Scolmore, five years with a leading wholesaler and nine years with a major manufacturer.
Chris has over 13 years of experience working in the electrical industry. During this time, he occupied many roles, including Operations Manager, three years in external sales and over seven years working for ESP as an Area Sales Manager covering the North East and Cumbria.
In their new roles, Mike and Chris are responsible for developing and implementing effective sales strategies for the company. Each will lead a team of five area sales managers in their specific regions, helping them achieve sales targets across the product categories that currently sit under the ESP umbrella – CCTV, access control, fire protection, emergency lighting and EVAC, as well as the Sangamo range of Heating Controls and Time Switches.
ESP continues to invest in its teams, infrastructure, and product development programme and within the last year has announced some significant new product launches. The 24/7 IP Colour CCTV range and Beacon range of EVAC products were released in 2022, followed by the launch earlier this year of the new Aperta IP PoE (Power over Ethernet) collection of door entry solutions.
