Kung Fu champion recruited
Dekko Window Systems has appointed Sylvester Allen as national business development manager.
Sylvester brings almost three decades of industry experience, having previously worked for one of the UK’s largest manufacturers and suppliers of uPVC glazing products. He also brings a strong work ethic, the company said, developed during a six-year stint as part of the army.
Sylvester also has a decorated background in martial arts. As a Second Dan Black Belt, Sylvester has represented Great Britain in Kung Fu, and won the King Cobra National Championship in 1993, a title he successfully defended in 1994.
Sylvester was also awarded honorary citizenship by a mayor in Pennsylvania after he defeated the American Kung Fu champion in 1994.
“I’m absolutely thrilled to join Dekko, especially at such an exciting time for the business,” Sylvester said. “In the short time I’ve been here, I’ve been so impressed by the care and attention Dekko put into all their products. Their commitment to great customer service has also been clear to see, and something I’m hoping to emulate in this fantastic role.
“I’m looking forward to getting out there and speaking to new and existing customers, highlighting everything Dekko has to offer ambitious installers, from valuable products to great service and complete support. Dekko are a breath of fresh air in this industry so I’m really excited to get stuck in.”
