Mr Leather’s appointment forms part of Domus Ventilation’s strategy to return to the specification sector following the launch of a range of high performance mechanical ventilation systems over the past six months.
These include the HRXE Mechanical Ventilation with Heat Recovery (MVHR) unit and the highly energy-efficient CMX Mechanical Extract Ventilation (MEV) units, which boasts the best Specific Fan Power (SFP) on the market.
A key part of Mr Leather’s role is to reintroduce M&C consultants and specifiers to Domus Ventilation and advise on the most suitable and compliant mechanical ventilation system for a project.
Mr Leather has 23 years of experience working across the breadth of the HVAC sector, from air handling units and curtains to pumps and ducting. Prior to joining Domus Ventilation, he was regional sales manager for London and the South East at Armstrong Fluid Technology, selling into specifiers and contractors.
Mr Leather commented: “Domus Ventilation has undergone a number of changes over recent years, including a name change and a move away from specification to focus on the installer and merchant channels.
“Being absent from the specifier sector for some time essentially means I have the opportunity to build this side of the business from scratch and that’s an exciting proposition. The product range is attractive to specifiers and contractors alike and the company has been working to put in place support for the specification sector, so it’s a challenge, but that’s what interests me.”
Since joining the business, Mr Leather has re-established contact with former specification customers his own contacts developed over the years, and he is currently working on a number of specification projects. He has also written a presentation which has been submitted to CIBSE for CPD accreditation.
Supporting the re-entry into the specification sector, Domus Ventilation’s in-house technical department is providing free technical and design services, while all products have been uploaded to the BIM library and a new 108-page Specification Guide has been released.
