New commercial department

DHF (Door and Hardware Federation) has created a new commercial department, established to support the organisation’s growth and training offering.

Marketing manager Patricia Sowsbery-Stevens has been promoted to the post of commercial manager and will oversee the new department’s development, with an emphasis on streamlining training course booking processes and delivering the best service and value to its members.

Patricia will also be tasked with ensuring that new entrants into the industry are presented with the opportunity to become proficient with the necessary accreditations, qualifications, such as NVQ, and CSCS cards.

“Training remains one of DHF’s biggest growth areas,” Patricia said. “The creation of a new commercial department will enable us to co-ordinate and restructure our training offering to ensure our programmes continue to provide both members and non-members with the support, technical expertise, information and knowledge they need to operate in their chosen sector, successfully and compliantly.”
