Neil Yule, former UK business unit director for Fläkt Woods has been promoted to a Europe-wide role focusing on system sales. He will take on the title of sales director (systems) for Fläkt Woods Air Climate Europe.
Mr Yule has been replaced in the UK by Allan Hurdle, who has joined Fläkt Woods from Elta Fans, and Mark Grimes who has been promoted internally.
Formerly Elta’s md, Mr Hurdle becomes managing director of Fläkt Woods’ UK Fans Business and Mr Grimes has taken on the role of managing director of Fläkt Woods System Products for UK and Ireland, having been business unit director for Ireland. Linden Shuttleworth is responsible for System Sales in the UK.
Mr Yule put his promotion down to the success the UK business had achieved in delivering integrated systems solutions for air management.
He said: “The plan is for me to push the approach more broadly across Europe. The systems sale is becoming more important as energy legislation drives consultants to build products with sound lifecycle costs into buildings.”
All three report to Patrick Pouliquen, Fläkt Woods senior vice president - Air Climate Europe.
