Inspiring Business by Sharing Success

Simmons strengthens sales sector

Burton-based Russell Roof Tiles has strengthened its Southern sales team to meet unprecedented growth and support customer demand.

Joining the leading pitched roofing manufacturer with more than three years’ experience, Iain Simmons has already gained invaluable knowledge working at SIG Roofing – the UK’s largest specialist merchant of roofing related products and services.

Iain’s appointment as Sales Executive comes at a significant time for Russell Roof Tiles, which currently employs 100 people at its two sites in Burton.

Having only launched its Southern division in 2014, Russell Roof Tiles has seen its strongest boost in sales across the region. This is largely down to its investment in streamlining processes and new IT equipment to support customer demand. The team have also introduced new and innovative products. 

In addition, Iain’s specialist knowledge is crucial in supporting customers, to ensure their requirements are met efficiently. Iain is responsible for increasing the brand’s market share, as part of the manufacturer’s significant growth plans.

He said:

“The opportunity for me to further support Russell Roof Tiles’ growing reputation is very exciting. I have already built strong relationships with customers, who have never benefitted from our services and products before.”

James Pendleton, Regional Sales Director, at Russell Roof Tiles, added:

“At Russell Roof Tiles, we have always made significant steps to attract and retain the best staff and Iain is no exception.

“With considerable passion and unrivalled knowledge, Iain is a real asset, strengthening our successful Southern sales team. Working alongside our Southern Area Sales Manager, Michael Palmer, he will be pivotal in growing our presence and strong reputation as a leading manufacturer in the southern region.”

Russell Roof Tiles is a leading independent pitched roof tile manufacturer providing products for leading UK house builders and high-profile social housing and commercial projects, where sustainability and eco-credentials are of the utmost priority.
