Meet Howard Davies - Our New Business Development Consultant
We recently welcomed Howard Davies to the team in a new Business Development role. Howard brings with him over 40 years within the construction industry, and for the past 20 years has dealt with business development in the aluminium and ceilings sector from specification through to design and site installation.
What will your new role involve?
My new role involves bringing metal suspended ceilings into the product offering at Amron and getting this into the marketplace to fill a need in the market for a high quality attractively priced product.
Tell us how you are adapting to the new role working from home?
I have been working remotely from my home office for over 30 years, so this is not an issue for me, but a structured approach is necessary, you have to work a full day but close the door after hours. The temptation is always there to 'just check that email'.
What’s your biggest achievement career wise to date?
Lasting this long in a very turbulent industry and economy!
Who inspired you to pursue the career you have today?
My Headmaster, he said I was rubbish at exams and better get out and earn some money!
How would your friends describe you?
Honest, Dependable and Driven.
What one item could you not live without?
It would have to be my wedding ring.
In terms of looking ahead, are there any trends in the metal industry that we need to look out for?
At present it's difficult to spot trends really but to be on the spot, at the moment Specifiers and Main Contractors are looking for that thing that makes there projects different, so high spec metal seems to be on trend along with mesh for that 'New York Loft' look, we also must be aware that in the current climate, hygiene and bio are big buzz words so special paint finishes for food prep and food storage are high on the agenda.
