TEMPORARY building experts Spaciotempo are stepping up their operation in Ireland with the appointment of a new Sales Manager.
Belfast-based Philip Tallon has been handed the task of developing the company’s rapidly expanding customer base across both Northern Ireland and the Republic.
The 31-year-old has more than 10 years of experience in structural and technical roles, so he’s well placed to respond to customers’ specific requirements and provide expert advice.
The move breaks new ground for Spaciotempo as it’s the first time the company has appointed a specialist dedicated to its Irish customers.
And managing director Scott Jameson believes it will present significant advantages.
He said: “We have quite a number of accounts in both Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland which we have run from our base in the UK in the past.
“But now we have someone based over there who has local knowledge, who can make immediate site visits and provide a high level of customer service.
“Philip will improve our account and project management in Ireland and, importantly, gives us a physical presence.
“As a highly qualified and experienced engineer, with vast expertise in construction methods, he’ll have an immediate understanding of our clients’ technical demands.”
Philip graduated from Queen’s University in Belfast with a degree in mechanical engineering and worked for an aerospace company before moving to project management in structural steelwork.
He said: “My background is in engineering and, though my new role will be very different, there are still a lot of fundamental synergies between the two, so I think it will be an easy switch to make.
“Spaciotempo are an ambitious and very modern company who already have a strong customer base in Ireland including some very big names.
“I’ll be looking to develop that over the coming years and I’m very much looking forward to the challenge.”
