Changes at the helm

Exlabesa Building Systems has promoted Paul Benn to general manager.

Paul joined the business in 2015 and his promotion reflects what he has achieved during his time, the company said. In his new role, Paul will report to director of Exlabesa Building Systems (Global), Paco Quinta.

Derek Hodgson, former general manager of Exlabesa Building Systems, said: “Having been with the business for seven years, I had recently made a personal decision to take a step back from the business. I will, however, continue to support Paul and the rest of the team going forward. Paul has been a great asset to myself and Exlabesa Building Systems and is a natural successor for this role. I wish him every success in his new position.”

Previously holding the post of national sales manager, Paul has been instrumental in help building the company’s position in the UK fenestration market, the company said.

Paul has been tasked with the specific goal of generating profitable sales in the UK for the company’s aluminium systems and realising Exlabesa Building Systems’ ambition to continue to grow market share.
