Following a successful first year operating as an independent lighting company, Ovia has recently appointed three new members to the sales team. A number of regions have been split further to accommodate the growth in demand for Ovia products and to ensure that customers in all regions continue to receive a dedicated and first class service.
Richard Pickford joins as area sales manager for the newly created region that covers Central East Anglia. He brings with him nearly 20 years’ sales experience having spent time working with a lighting manufacturer as well as a role with a major electrical wholesaler.
With more than 10 years’ experience at a prominent electrical wholesaler and nearly seven years with a leading lighting company, Jake Barwick has taken up the role of area sales manager for another newly created region covering the South West and the Channel Islands.
Harley Adams is the new area sales manager for the Midlands region and joins the team following a number of roles within electrical manufacturing companies.
Along with the rest of the sales team, the new members will be responsible for developing new and existing customer relationships at an independent and national level, as well as engaging with contractors and specifiers to grow brand and product awareness.
