We had a short interview with Phil and this is what he had to say:
Can you tell us a bit about your career?
"In 1972 at the age of 16, I joined Kenneth Fowler & Partners as an apprentice consultant. 5 years later I moved to WS Atkins and then in 1979 I moved to the Midlands & joined DES who, at that time were a Carrier distributor. I have worked in sales ever since, working with Carrier before moving into ventilation with various other manufacturers. Since the mid 90’s I have worked specifically with AHUs. I have always been attracted to prestigious projects and have been fortunate to work on Apple Studios, Channel Tunnel, The Shard, Whitehall and The Savoy Hotel, to name a few."
What motivates you now?
"The Damvent opportunity is the pinnacle of my career. I love what I do and the people I work with and the positive energy which comes from that."
"The UK sales started with small steps, as we introduced a brand new product. The vision now is to grow, expand, push further, so a few years ago we started to talk about recruiting Agents. Damvent UK was born and we now have 10 technical sales agents searching out new projects, enquiries across the entire UK and Ireland."
