Viessmann has appointed Chris Johnson as UK director of sales, based at the company’s Telford headquarters.
In a new senior position reporting into managing director Graham Russell, he will oversee Viessmann’s UK sales operation, covering domestic and commercial sales of all products and services within the company’s Climate Solutions division, including the Vitocal heat pump range.
Johnson previously held sales and business development leadership positions at Stiebel Eltron and Plumbing Trade Supplies (PTS) and, most recently, was national sales director – heat pumps & renewables at Vaillant.
He said: “I’m really looking forward to developing and leading the sales structure and strategy of the Viessmann business as it transitions to become an even stronger renewables focussed company.
“Joining Viessmann at a pivotal point in its accelerated active transition towards renewable solutions and supporting the UK team to reshape the customer proposition are opportunities I’m very excited to deliver on. Working for an organisation with family values and the ambition to develop future-oriented solutions was at the forefront of my decision to join the Viessmann family.”
Graham Russell said: “With Chris’s appointment, Viessmann is taking another fundamental step forward in the UK. Chris joins our business with vast experience of the heating industry and more importantly, the heat pump market. Chris’s technical knowledge and commercial awareness of the market will be a huge asset to Viessmann.”
