Advanced Appoints New UK Regional Sales Manager
Global fire systems leader Advanced has appointed Ken Bullock as its new sales manager for south east England.
Well known in the UK fire industry – and a specialist in wireless fire systems – Ken will develop and maintain Advanced’s customer base across the region, working closely with its existing regional sales managers and business development team.
Commenting on his appointment, Ken said: “I’m delighted to be joining Advanced. I’ve known and worked with its team for many years and few people in the industry can argue with the leading position the company enjoys. Advanced’s MxPro range is some distance ahead of the competition in terms of performance, quality and ease-of-use. The challenge is to maintain our strong growth, especially on large networked systems, while not forgetting the small jobs where installers simply want the easiest and most cost effective installation, commissioning and maintenance.
Ian Thompson, Advanced’s sales director, said: ‘It’s a pleasure to welcome Ken to the team. His wealth of knowledge and in-depth industry experience is a valuable addition to our strong sales department and I look forward to working with him as we continue to grow our business in the south east.”
Advanced designs intelligent fire systems approved to key international, regional and local standards, including EN54 and UL 864. The legendary performance, quality and ease-of-use of its products sees them used in prestigious and challenging locations all over the world, from single panel installations to large multi-site networks. Advanced products include complete fire detection systems, multi-protocol fire panels, extinguishing control and fire paging systems. The company is a subsidiary of Halma plc.
