Key promotion at industrial electronic repair specialist

One of the UK’s leading providers of industrial electronic repairs has announced a key promotion within its sales team.

Zach Taylor has been promoted from Account Manager to Regional Sales Manager, taking on the new position in February.

Zach joined the Bridgend-based business, which works with leading manufacturers and businesses globally, in December 2020 as a Commercial Management Trainee while studying for a degree in business.

He quickly progressed to an Account Manager role in south-west England and as the newly appointed Regional Sales Manager, Zach will now be looking after customers in Bath, Bournemouth, Bristol, Dorset, Exeter, Portsmouth, Plymouth, Salisbury, Southampton, Taunton, Torquay and Truro.

In his new role, Zach will meet with new and existing customers in the region, building and maintaining relationships to ensure they receive the best possible solutions and service from the firm.

Zach said: “Since starting at Kontroltek, the company has been very supportive of my progression and growth. I am excited to take on this new role and I am fortunate to visit businesses of all sizes in the south-west, with a variety of needs whether it be repair, supply or on-site engineer visits.”

Cath Demaid, Director of Commercial and HR, said: “Zach is a fantastic addition to our regional sales team. The experience and knowledge he has built since he started with us perfectly places him to provide an excellent level of service and expertise to our customers in the south-west region.”

Outside of work, Zach enjoys playing rugby and is the captain of local club Pencoed RFC, which Kontroltek has sponsored for a decade.

This year’s sponsorship includes an addition designed to enhance the game experience for both the Pencoed RFC senior and current U15s age groups. Kontroltek has invested in a Veo camera, a state-of-the-art technology that promises to transform the way the sport is played and analysed. The Veo camera enables detailed video analysis and performance tracking, offering players and coaches valuable insights to further develop their skills and strategies.

Zach said: “It’s a real privilege to represent both Kontroltek and Pencoed RFC. The Veo camera is a gamechanger for us with regards to how it will help our team improve and develop. Thanks to Kontroltek for their ongoing support of both my professional and sporting endeavours.”

Founded in 2011, Kontroltek specialises in industrial electronic repairs and supply nationwide employing more than 60 staff.

Bidding farewell to a minority of cowboy builders and cynical refurbishment developers

It’s a problem that has probably affected some people reading this article.

For the majority of honest builders and developers, unfortunately there are a small minority who saddle homebuyers with excessive bills, compounded by shoddy workmanship to boot.

This is why the duo behind a design and interior refurbishment studio are on a mission to place high quality interior design at the heart of homes across the capital.

They are passionate about giving homebuyers piece of mind and helping drive out rogue builders and refurbishment developers – estimated to cost the UK economy £10 billion a year, according to research conducted by The Federation of Master Builders.

Cuvelo co-founder Patrick Dougherty said: “Unfortunately buyers have heard too many horror stories about cowboy builders and cynical refurbishment developers, and they also love the idea of buying a period home. Yet the interiors of these homes are often tired, dull or both, so moving into one means taking on a project.

“The solution, therefore, is buying a period home that has been beautifully refurbished. However, it’s time-consuming to find exceptional examples and buyers don’t always trust the quality of the work. We want to bid farewell to cowboy builders and cynical refurbishment developers.”

Costanza Ranieri said: “Too often a beautiful refurbishment simply gets lost among the mass of homes available on the market.

“We understand quality and great design – as well as the costs and hard work that go into it – and know how to communicate it effectively.”
