Oliver Partington joins Stabila in the newly created position of Sales Director UK & Ireland.
Partington joins Stabila after working for more than twelve years for the Akzo Nobel group in several sales positions, most recently as sales director of the Dulux Decorator Centres.
In 2021, after achieving record sales globally and in the UK, Stabila announced its plans to establish Stabila UK Ltd to provide intensified support to its partners within all levels of the distribution chain in the United Kingdom and Ireland. With Stabila having its own local team, customers will benefit from personal and direct first-hand advice.
With the filling of the position of Sales Director UK, Tony Hirst's task is complete. British-born Tony Hirst accompanied the founding of the UK subsidiary due to his many years of sales experience and success for Stabila in Canada before retiring now.
“We are extremely grateful to Tony for his support during the start-up phase of Stabila UK and wish him all the best for his retirement. We are convinced that with Oliver we have found someone who has the ability to understand the needs of professional clients in depth and to continuously expand our range of services. Our aim is to work hand-in-hand with our distribution partners to develop strong and sustainable sales through enhanced support in sales, logistics and training,” said Ulrich Dähne, CEO of Stabila. “Our next step now is hiring two Field Support Managers in the near future.”
