Airdri Group appoints new head of business development
Oxford-based hand dryer manufacturer, Airdri, has welcomed Joe Pearce to its senior team as head of business development, to lead the company's sales team, identify and develop new areas of growth and improve profitability within existing revenue streams.
Prior roles for Joe have included national account manager at Mattel, sales and training partner at Dyson and sales director at Annabel Karmel.
"It's an exciting time to join the dynamic, hugely experienced sales and marketing team at Airdri,” enthuses Joe. “The brand is staying true to its ethos of innovation and sustainability within the sector. It has some exciting new products in the pipeline, as well as continuing to drive forward standards in the manufacture of reliable high-quality, industry-leading hand dryers. There is a strong team in place already which I'm very much looking forward to becoming part of."
Steve Whittall, group research & development director says: "Joe joins the Airdri Group at a pivotal time as we expand into new markets and solidify our reputation as an innovative force in the global hand drying industry. Our business is growing at pace, and we know that in order to continue the upward curve we must continually invest in the right personnel. We have appointed Joe, who has a wealth of leadership and sales development across various different sectors in UK and European markets, to push forward our business development strategy nationwide and internationally."
Airdri says it laid down ambitious expansion plans at the beginning of the year, and after a strong first quarter is investing further in its sales & marketing division to achieve exponential growth across the rest of 2021. Having recently launched a new range of eco hand dryers, as well as pivoting during the pandemic to become one of the UK's leading suppliers of SteraSpace air sanitisation units, the firm is on course for a record year.
