He joins Wilo from Whitecroft Lighting where he was regional sales director for a leading UK manufacturer of light fittings and controls for healthcare, commercial, education and industrial applications.
Joining Wilo brings Mr Williamson’s career full circle, as he started his working life as a plumber before moving through a succession of senior sales roles.
Mr Williamson said: “I’m enjoying being back in an industry I know and love. You can’t beat dealing with wet stuff and for the geek in me, there’s nothing better than a well-engineered plantroom full of pipework, pumps and all things mechanical.”
“These are exciting times for Wilo in the UK,” added interim managing director Andy O’Brien. “There’s never been a better time to join the company and we’re delighted that David is joining us to spearhead the sales operation for us. His track records of team management and sales improvement are impressive and we look forward to working with him in the months and years ahead.”
