Deane Flint, former branch president (UK & IRE) for Mitsubishi Electric Europe, has been appointed commercial director at Coolair Equipment Ltd and will be responsible for delivering a new nationwide sales programme at the Manchester-based company.
Flint spent over two decades at Mitsubishi Electric, joining as regional sales manager and becoming the first non-Japanese President of the UK & Ireland Branch. He started his career in the HVAC industry in 1981 as a trainee building services design engineer and draughtsman for a Government consultancy service, the Property Services Agency.
John Otterson, managing director of Coolair, said: “Coolair Equipment Limited is delighted to appoint Deane to our board of directors. We have worked alongside Deane for over 20-years. His skills, network and knowledge of the industry are vast, and his vision aligns exactly with Coolair Equipment Limited’s future plans. This is a very exciting time for everyone at Coolair Equipment Limited.”
Flint said: “Coolair Equipment Limited was incorporated around the same time as I began my career in HVAC, and we have both been involved in driving the UK market for the last 40 years. Aside from their technical expertise and professional reputation, what has always attracted me to Coolair Equipment Limited is their ethos. They are renowned for giving their employees the space to manage themselves and progress through the business, ensuring loyalty among staff and a consistently high standard of service to their customers. There is an exciting future ahead at Coolair Equipment Limited, and I am very much looking forward to joining the family.”
