Hitachi expands heating team

Hitachi Cooling & Heating has repositioned its heating team within the business with the appointment of new national sales manager for heating, Kevin Lucas, and key account manager, Lisa Bishop.

Joining the UK and Ireland team in January, Mr Lucas has 20 years of experience in low carbon and renewables technologies working mainly in technical sales and business development roles with Baxi Technologies UK, Plumbing Trade Supplies and Travis Perkins. He will be working closely with Hitachi’s distributor network to help develop their air source heat pump business, and also actively pursuing specification and project opportunities.

Mr Lucas said: “For me it’s important to promote the Hitachi brand so that all parts of the industry – installers, social housing and new build – are aware and understand what we offer in terms of our heating product range, new developments and the level of support available to our customers.”

Supporting Mr Lucas is new key account manager Ms Bishop. She has been part of the Hitachi team based in Maidenhead for over 14 years, most recently working as a customer-facing sales administrator.

Mr Lucas and Ms Bishop will be working together to support Hitachi’s heating customers by keeping them updated with product news and developments and providing an unrivalled level of customer support, ensuring both new and existing customers have confidence in specifying, purchasing and installing Hitachi air source heat pump products.

Hitachi’s managing director for the UK and Ireland, Gboyega Obafemi, said: “With a new range of R32 air source heat pump products being launched in the coming months, I am delighted that Kevin is onboard and Lisa’s considerable Hitachi knowledge and experience is helping shape the new heating team at this pivotal time.”
