Design role

Derrick Purvis has been appointed by Brisant-Secure.

Derrick has 20 years’ experience in marketing and product management roles, 15 of which were with Avocet Hardware. He has a degree in Design Marketing and has worked with high profile clients, managing projects for the likes of B&Q, Wickes and Homebase.

Derrick said: “I am delighted to have been given the opportunity to join Brisant-Secure and look forward to helping them with their plans for continued growth. Having spent 15 years in this sector, I have been seriously impressed with the rise of the Ultion lock brand which positions itself as a market leader. And I also expect the 2020 Sweet hardware range will soon follow the same path.”

Joint CEO Steve Stewart, who has previously worked with Derrick, said: “We believe that Derrick’s experience across the lock and hardware sector will enable wider groups to appreciate the design and build quality that underpin all Brisant products.”
