Astracast appoints new regional sales managers, Neil Whitaker-Johnson and Tom Lanaway

Neil Whitaker-Johnson has accumulated over 25 years’ experience in sales, the last 15 years of which were spent as a Regional Sales Manager in the kitchen sector. His knowledge and experience working with independent retailers and merchants has given him success throughout his career, and will certainly prove essential in his new role as Astracast’s Regional Sales Manager.

Johnson will be strengthening Astracast’s external team to work with customers across the central UK. Speaking of his new appointment, Johnson said, “I’m delighted to have this fantastic opportunity, to use my wealth of experience and expertise, to help bring the Astracast brand back to No1 in the U.K.”

Tom Lanaway, in contrast, joined Astracast 3 years ago as a Sales Co-ordinator, after graduating from university. Since then he has progressed into several roles within the business and has now joined Astracast’s external sales team in the north. Lanaway said, “Overall I have enjoyed the training and industry insight Astracast has given me. I welcome the challenge that my new role will bring, as well as being a part of the exciting future ahead for Astracast and our partners.”

Darren Cooper, Managing Director of Astracast, added: “Our aim is to become the number one brand once again over the next 3 years. We are absolutely delighted to welcome Neil and Tom into their new roles at Astracast, bringing their wealth of experience and industry knowledge into the field. We are excited to see their skills make Astracast the leader in the kitchen sinks sector once again.”
