David Fell will join Falmec UK in October 2021 as regional business manager for the North of England to drive sales of the company’s extraction and induction appliances in Yorkshire, Lancashire & Merseyside.
The addition of Fell to Falmec’s UK sales team reflects an increase in sales and enquiries for the brand since the height of the pandemic.
According to the business, its revenues are up by 112% – almost doubling the record achieved following the launch as Falmec’s UK subsidiary, at the beginning of 2020.
Having started his career at Wellmann Kitchens where he worked for nine years, Fell went on to spend four years at distributor, Kershaw Distribution in the North of England, selling Blanco Astracast and other kitchen appliances.
Over the past 23 years he has worked for Blanco UK, so has experience in selling cooker hoods, alongside the brand’s sink and tap ranges.
In his new role as Regional Manager at Falmec, Fell will be reunited with former Blanco MD Ron Blount, who heads up the UK sales team.
Commenting on his appointment, Fell said: “I am grateful to Ron Blount, Sean Drumm and all at Falmec UK for providing me with this much-needed new challenge in my career.
“It gives me great pleasure to be representing such an iconic Italian brand and I am looking forward to introducing its extensive range of premium extraction & induction products to my dealer network in the North”
Ron Blount added: “Having worked with David for many years at Blanco, I have no doubts that he will be an excellent addition to the Falmec team.
“David’s track record speaks for itself in terms of experience & longevity, so we are delighted that he has agreed to come on board to further strengthen our presence in the North of England”
