Two key figures in the commercial team at British cooling systems manufacturer, Airedale International Air Conditioning, have been appointed to Leeds City Region Enterprise Partnership’s ‘We are International’ network which gives free advice and mentoring to novice exporters.

Commercial director, Mark Viner and export sales manager, Asim Ansari, join the network which comprises more than 40 of Yorkshire’s top exporting companies.

Mark Viner, who has more than 25 years’ experience of engineering sales in the UK and overseas, joined Airedale in 2012 and is in charge of the company’s global growth strategy.

Export sales manager, Asim Ansari who joined the business in 1990, has expertise in export sales, distribution management, key account management and overseas business development. He manages Airedale’s export sales division, with strategic responsibility for international sales. Asim has recently overseen the opening of an office in Dubai from which Airedale services its business partners in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries, and a Moscow office in association with its local business partner. Most recently, the business has also seen a new storage and test facility in Riyadh opened by its Saudi Arabian partner.

The export network is a major element of the Leeds City Region Local Enterprise Partnership’s ‘We are International’ campaign. The initiative – delivered in partnership with international trade specialists Chamber International, UK Trade & Investment (UKTI) Yorkshire and The Enterprise Europe Network and MY Export Hub – aims to add £1.6bn to the City Region economy and create thousands of jobs during the next three years.
