We would like to wish Steve all the best for the future as he takes up this new opportunity and relocates to Scotland.

John brings with him a wealth of experience in business development and strategic selling and will be a key addition to the senior team,” said Brendan Murphy, Group Sales Director.

I hope to use both my experience and enthusiasm to help Vent-Axia achieve its strategic plans to build growth in the distribution market. I am keen to start working immediately towards these goals with the sales team. Taking on the baton from Steve Archibald, who worked for Vent-Axia for a number of years, I hope to achieve a similar longevity at the company,” said John Ryszkowski, Sales Director – Distribution at Vent-Axia.
