Jonathan Hicks is the new Head of Sales for REHAU’s Northern region, based at the company’s Manchester sales office.

He is managing the northern sales team and reporting to recently appointed sales director Barry Gilligan.

Jonathan, who has worked at REHAU since 1998, previously held a similar position within REHAU’s booming renewable energy division, so customers will benefit from his extensive experience working with some of the UK’s largest commercial contractors on large scale projects.

Jonathan is stepping into the shoes of industry veteran Phil Watts, who recently retired after more than 25 years with REHAU. During that time, Phil worked directly with customers providing sales and technical support and was also involved in the development of some of the company’s most iconic products including the original S706 70mm system.

Jonathan said: “It’s an honour to be taking over from Phil at a time when there are so many exciting new opportunities for customers right across the window and door sector. I hope that my experience and expertise in energy efficient building will bring a new dimension to the team and that together we can go on strengthening our partnerships with our customers.”
