Tridonic UK has expanded its sales team with the appointment of Philippe Veltz to the role of Global Key Account Sales Manager and Simon Blazey as Pre Sales Manager, Northern Europe Region.
Both bring with them considerable experience; Philippe's gained in the lighting control gear industry and Simon's across the wider building automation market.
As Global Key Account Manager, Veltz will take responsibility for some of Tridonic's key global customers, including Fagerhult, Glamox, Schreder and Havells and is tasked with supporting the existing regional sales team to ensure that these strategic, internationally operating customers receive all the support they require for their continued development. Veltz will, in his own words; "Help Tridonic to act local but also encourage it to think globally", thereby ensuring not only its own growth but also that of its key customers. He continues; "The customer is king and we must remain customer focussed along the entire value added chain to ensure our continued success."
Simon Blazey's focus is going to be on explaining Tridonic's value add credentials for building performance to key stake holders in the wider built environment market. This will include building links between the end users and specification markets, with an emphasis on the 'Retail and Hospitality' sector and 'Office and Education'. His role will also involve work to support and expand Tridonic's controls and integration portfolio. "This is an exciting time in the lighting market as people are beginning to understand how important the lighting in a building is, not only in terms of staff performance and overall ambiance, but also the significant savings that can be made in terms of energy consumption when lighting is given the attention it deserves."
"We are delighted that both Philippe and Simon have chosen to further their careers with Tridonic and we look forward to leveraging their combined expertise and experience as we continue to develop;" said Richard Strode, Managing Director at Tridonic UK. Both Veltz and Blazey will work from the company's UK office in Basingstoke.
