As part of Gerflor‘s strategic policy to develop its UK business in the hospitality sector, the global flooring and wall protection solutions manufacturer has appointed Andy Wheble in the new role of retail specialist – hospitality sector, which has been created to grow specification sales in hospitality environments such as hotels, pubs and restaurants.
Andy was formerly retail sales manager for Itab Prolight and has 18 years’ sales and new business development experience within the retail sector. He joins Gerflor’s newly formed team of retail and hospitality sales specialists in a national sales position, which also involves working closely with Gerflor’s UK contract floorings sales force and European Hospitality team.
“Gerflor is an expert in this field and although a big player in Europe, the company is not so well known in the UK hospitality sector. We therefore aim to raise our profile, as Gerflor has both the expertise and the widest range of vinyl flooring product solutions to offer customers,” comments a Gerflor representative.
Andy will be looking for new business opportunities and assisting key hospitality customers with their specification requirements across refurbishment and new build projects.
Gerflor specialises in product innovations for contract, sport, transport, residential, housing, retail and hospitality markets. Gerflor’s environmentally sustainable floorings are manufactured at its ISO 14001 certified production sites.
