With more than 25 years of experience in the plumbing and heating sector, Julian Reed makes the move back to Barlo after a three-year stint working for boiler manufacturer Vaillant.
Mr Reed will help to boost Barlo’s presence in the south of England and Wales, strengthening relationships with key players at all levels of the building supply chain, from merchants and contractors through to housing associations and local councils. He will become their first point of contact, providing expert advice on Barlo’s range of designer, panel and low surface temperature emitters, as well as start-to-finish project support.
He said: “I’m excited to be returning to a company that’s both renowned and respected as an industry pioneer. I’m also proud to be representing Barlo’s market-leading product portfolio, which is completely unparalleled when it comes to heating performance and efficiency. I’m looking forward to further cementing the company’s position in southern regions, as well as being part of the continued success of a sales team which is truly second-to-none.”
Lee Kenney, managing director, commercial, at Barlo Radiators, added: “Julian is perfectly placed to champion Barlo in the South. He has a deep knowledge of the sector, an enviable black book of industry contacts in South Wales and England, and most importantly knows our extensive product range inside out. This region continues to be a growing market for us, so it’s an exciting time to have such an expert taking the helm.”
