Daikin Applied UK (formerly McQuay) announced that Bob Cowlard is the company's new managing director.
Bob took on the role of running Daikin's air handling unit (AHU) and chillers business day to day on Monday 9th November. The business changed its name in April this year and Bob has been hired to develop it further.
“I feel very fortunate to have this chance as it is one of those rare opportunities where the new MD gets to join an already successful business with an existing senior management team in place. Because no one is leaving to make space for me, It allows me the chance to revue the business and then focus upon the improvement that I can bring.
Having Jim Henley leading the sales, I know that these will go from strength to strength, so whilst not wanting to pre-empt anything at this stage, I do know that I will be focusing a good amount of my time at the manufacturing facility at Cramlington and also upon the marketing and brand positioning of the product range, both current and the future development that we will put in place.”
