Hitachi shapes new heating team for UK and Ireland

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, Kevin 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.

Lisa Bishop has been part of the team based in Maidenhead for over 14 years, most recently working as a customer-facing sales administrator.

Speaking about the new heating team, 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.
