As the next stage of our international growth strategy, and as a leading British manufacturer of chillers, precision air conditioning, IT cooling, industrial and process cooling systems, we have promoted Key Account Manager, Asim Ansari, to lead our export sales team.
Asim’s appointment as Export Sales Manager follows closely on the opening of new offices in Moscow last autumn and Dubai in February 2014, in addition to continued strengthening of relationships with international key accounts which has been Asim’s focus in recent years.
A key member of the British manufacturer’s commercial team with an MSc in Management, Asim is challenged with delivering significant export sales growth. Airedale has been a major force in the UK cooling market throughout our 40-year long history, and we believe that international markets represent the biggest single opportunity for revenue growth in the medium and long term.
In addition to nurturing Airedale’s global key accounts, Asim has overseen a large number of high profile installations for customers in the technology, utilities, banking, transport and telecoms sectors, reflecting the strong reputation for product innovation, quality and reliability with which Airedale is associated globally.
Asim, who joined Airedale in 1990, reports into Commercial Director, Mark Viner, head of Airedale’s UK and international Sales and Marketing functions in addition to its Controls, Service & Spares divisions which have a combined headcount of more than 125 individuals.
Commenting on his recent appointment, Asim said: “The business has for a long time recognised the importance of the export arena in evolving the business. As a result, the export sales team is working closely with our Marketing and New Product Development teams to refine products for the global marketplace as well as strengthening existing and developing new routes to market.”
