New door hardware technical director

Yale Door and Window Solutions has welcomed Brett Evans to the business as its new technical director for door hardware.

Brett will be responsible for overseeing and researching new door hardware developments in the UK and international markets, as well as looking after the day-to-day application work. A key element of the role will be liaising with customers to develop bespoke product packages based on their requirements.

Brett has an in-depth knowledge of the security industry having worked at ERA for the past 21 years. After graduating from the University of Wolverhampton with a degree in Business Studies, Brett started in a marketing position at the company where he realised he wanted to become more involved with the product development side of the business.

As a result, he moved over to a product management role, eventually working his way up to business development director for both European and American product profiles.

Paul Atkinson, sales director for Yale Door and Window Solutions, said: “Brett is a fantastic addition to the business, bringing a wealth of experience to the role. 2017 looks set to be another positive year and I’m looking forward to seeing how his expertise in the industry translates to our business.”
