Dortech has appointed Brian Carroll as business development manager, with the aim of leading the group’s sales strategy and more than doubling the maintenance division’s revenue to £2 million over the next 12 months.

Bringing with him over 35 years’ experience within the glazing and construction sectors, Brian has worked for a number of architectural glazing firms, in both technical and commercial roles. Prior to joining the Dortech team, he was most recently head of estimating and national sales manager at HW Architectural, where he was responsible for tendering large-scale projects and coordinating and optimising the company’s countrywide sales strategy.

Brian is now looking after the sales for both of Dortech’s Architectural and Maintenance divisions, with a specific focus on identifying new customers and ultimately boosting the group’s annual turnover.

James Sutherland, Dortech Group’s managing director, said: “With rising economic uncertainty and the unexpected closure of businesses, including some of our competitors, it’s been a turbulent year for construction. But it’s great to see an increasing number of companies starting to recognise the financial benefits of planned preventative maintenance.

“With Brian now part of the business, we’re in a strong position to increase our national profile. His extensive knowledge of the sector and the challenges which exist, should hopefully enable us to further improve our competitive edge and maintain our strong marketplace position.”

The Dortech Group is aiming to end 2020 on £9 million turnover, and the Maintenance division is predicted to account for 20% of the group’s overall revenue by 2022.
