08 July 2022
FIRE PROTECTION solutions manufacturer Advanced has appointed Iain Stevenson in the role of regional sales manager in order to drive further growth in South East England. He joins the company with over 26 years’ fire industry experience, having worked as a commissioning engineer on a wide range of high-profile projects in central London and the South East region.
In his new sales role with the business, Stevenson’s focus will be on developing Advanced’s existing client portfolio in the capital and surrounding counties, from Norfolk through to Berkshire and along the south coast.
Stevenson boasts an in-depth knowledge of the full range of Advanced’s fire protection solutions having been the ‘go to’ for all Advanced-specified installations in several of his previous roles.
Speaking about his appointment, Stevenson told Fire Safety Matters: “Advanced has been a major part of my career in the many engineering and commissioning roles I’ve held to date. I’m proud to have joined a company that commands such a great reputation in the fire industry, and I now look forward to sharing advice with customers that’s based on my experience gained through hands-on involvement with Advanced’s products.”
Amanda Hope, fire business development manager for the UK at Advanced, added: “Iain is a valuable new addition to the team. He brings a wealth of practical knowledge and experience of our products that I’m sure our customers will value. He’s also very familiar with the needs of our partners tasked with the challenge of protecting some of the largest and most prestigious sites across London. I look forward to working with Iain as he assumes responsibility for my South East accounts, allowing me to pursue our wider UK growth strategy.”
Advanced’s equipment protects many landmark London properties and their occupants, from buildings that dominate the skyline (including The Shard, 22 Bishopsgate, the Leadenhall and the Lloyds Buildings) through to iconic national treasures, among them the Natural History Museum, the Royal Albert Hall and the National Theatre.
