Introducing new Area Sales Manager

Richard Lawes

Carlisle Brass is pleased to announce, that Richard Lawes joined our organization on 4th of December as Area Sales Manager for the South West region.  

Richard has more than 30 years sales and management experience in specifying and selling hardware to Architectural Ironmongers, Locksmiths and Door Manufacturers. He has a proven track record selling market-leading security brands in the South West and will strengthen our existing Architectural Team.

Richard spent the entire week in the Carlisle office being introduced to the support team as well as being brought up to speed with the extensive product range and the services Carlisle Brass provides to their customers.

His comprehensive induction plan included lengthy workshops with each department and concluded with a UK wide sales meeting, focused on our 2018 business plan and strategy.

Richard understands the critical relationship he plays between his new customers and the rest of the organization and that is why he is planning to introduce himself personally to our South West customers in the New Year.

“I am very pleased with my first week with the company. I must admit, I am really surprised by the size of the team, the size of the warehousing facilities as well as the operational excellence Carlisle Brass prides itself on. I came across Carlisle Brass in my past role and the company always presents itself as a market leading ironmongery supplier focused on its product, progressive designs and technical excellence. The attention to detail and drive to succeed in the rest of the departments is brilliant to see.”

Richard is married and has 2 grown-up children. He lives in Bristol and is looking forward to his daughter’s wedding in March.
