New Specification Team for Alpha

We are pleased to announce the appointments of Melissa Leach, Simon Foord and Richard Stacey as Regional Specification Managers – three new roles created to spearhead our continued growth in the new-build sector.

Melissa, who joins us from heating consultant J&H Lawrence, starts her new job as Regional Specification Manager for North of England and Scotland on 29 November. As a trained SAP Assessor, the experience she brings to the team will be invaluable. 

Simon has been a Technical Sales Manager covering South East England since joining Alpha in March 2006. He previously worked at Plumb Center, Grahams and PTS, the latter of which he spent eight years with initially as Branch Manager at Lewes, followed by six years as an Area Sales Representative. Responsible for South and East England, he takes on his new role from 1 December.

Since joining Alpha in March 2009 as a Technical Sales Manager, Richard has covered the South West of England and South Wales. He first came into the heating industry in 1994, going on to perform sales roles for several major manufacturers. In his new position, which comes into effect from 1 December, Richard will be looking after the Midlands and South West of England. 

Congratulations to all. We are sure you’ll join us in wishing them the very best of luck.
