Lakesmere appoints new International Sales Director

As the International division of national building envelope specialist Lakesmere continues to go from strength to strength, the company has appointed Duncan Johnstone to the role of International Sales Director.

Bringing with him many years’ experience in the construction sales market, Duncan previously worked for Corus Kalzip, one of Lakesmere’s key supply chain partners. Taking on a new dedicated sales role with Lakesmere’s flourishing International division to help further build its client base, Duncan will operate from both Lakesmere’s UK head quarters in Winchester and the company’s network of offices overseas.

Lakesmere’s Managing Director Mark Davey added: “Having worked with Duncan closely for many years during his time with Corus Kalzip, we are delighted to have been able to invite him to become a permanent member of the Lakesmere team. As the largest installer of Kalzip roofing in both the UK and Europe, Lakesmere will benefit greatly from Duncan’s extensive product knowledge and sales experience and I’m sure he will play a vital role in helping Lakesmere International continue to fill its order book and expand its global reach”.

Launched in 2009 in Abu Dhabi, Lakesmere International has now established further offices in Riyadh and Jeddah in Saudi Arabia in addition to premises in Muscat, Oman. Following appointments to work on a number of high-profile projects, including the Princess Noura University in Riyadh where the company delivered a multi-million dollar Kalzip roofing contract, Lakesmere International’s order book now includes several key contracts in the infrastructure and aviation sectors. Having recently secured a high-value infrastructure project in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, Lakesmere is also currently on site completing a roofing package at a new airport in Salalah, Oman, various roofing works on several new ancillary buildings at Muscat Airport and a roofing contract for a new Civilian Aviation Centre and Air Traffic Control centre in Oman.
