Grant welcomes a trio of new starters

Jim Moody and Terry Townend join the company’s field-based sales team to deliver sales support to heating engineers, installers, merchants and other customers in their areas. As the area sales manager for central and southern Scotland, Jim will be covering the counties between the Scottish Borders and Dumfries and Galloway up to Stirling and Argyll and Bute. Meanwhile, Terry will be the new area sales manager for the Midlands, as well as covering Merseyside, Manchester, South Yorkshire and Lincolnshire. Both Jim and Terry have backgrounds steeped in the heating industry, each having extensive experience with traditional and renewable home heating systems.

On the road

“I’m excited to get out on the road again,” comments Jim. “Travelling over the most beautiful parts of the UK and chatting with some of the best heating engineers and customers are the best perks of the job. I’m looking forward to building relationships with existing customers as well as meeting new customers looking to work with Grant’s extensive product offering.”

Terry adds: “With my experience of low carbon heating and my knowledge from working in the merchant network, I want to help make the transition into renewables as simple and easy as it can be, supporting existing and new customers. Not only does Grant have a great depth of quality products, it also has the support to back its products.”

Technical sales support

Steven Paton is the company’s new sales support engineer for the North of England and Scotland, providing technical sales support to customers and assisting their renewable heating projects.

Steven first joined Grant in May 2022 as the area sales manager for the North of Scotland, during which time he has worked closely with installers, merchants and developers to provide sales support for all of Grant’s products. In his new role, Steven will be assisting installers and heating engineers with tailored technical support for Grant renewable installations, in particular helping with air source heat pump projects. From carrying out site surveys and assisting engineers with heat pump set-ups through to supporting customers with system design enquiries, Steven will be on hand to support installers with the technical advice they need for their Grant renewable heating installations.

“My new role is an exciting new chapter,” comments Steven. “I thoroughly enjoy working with installers and engineers, supporting them by answering any queries or by being on-site to provide technical assistance. As a sales support engineer, I’ll get to work with our existing G1 installer network and look forward to helping these engineers and new customers as they embark on their route to renewables.”
