EnviroVent has promoted James Kane to head of sales – social housing.
James has been promoted to the role after being EnviroVent’s regional sales manager for London and the South East for the past two years. He has almost 20 years’ experience in the social housing sector, having worked for brands including Electrolux and Mira Showers, before moving into the ventilation sector seven years ago.
In his new role, James will manage a team of 22 people including EnviroVent’s social housing surveyors and ventilation specialists and will report to customer experience director Ed Simms.
Ed said: “James is passionate about serving the social housing sector and will be looking to drive through many product and service enhancements to customers.
“Working closely with our marketing, product development, technical and installation team, he will be aiming to collaborate even more closely to solve condensation and mould issues, with ventilation solutions for existing and new customers across the whole of the UK.”
EnviroVent stated that James and his team will be introducing new developments to EnviroVent’s social housing customers in the year ahead, including new features to its renowned Filterless Infinity Fan, which is expected to enable even better monitoring and analysis for social housing customers.
EnviroVent’s social housing team’s role involves working with many different partners, including social landlords, retrofit and planned maintenance departments, supporting them in carrying out day to day repairs and disrepairs where condensation and mould are causing or could potentially cause a problem.
James added: “I’m really excited to be embarking on this new role at EnviroVent. It is fantastic be working for a brand like EnviroVent which really understands social housing and invests in products and services that help solve customer problems.
“I’m looking forward to bringing some exciting new developments to housing associations and social landlords over the coming months and to helping our whole team to address even more customers’ ventilation issues.”
