The Roca Group has bolstered its specification team with two promotions for current employees. Derek Hopwood and Robert Longstaff were both previously Area Sales Managers for the company and have now taken on new roles as Project Specification Managers.
Robert has been with the Roca Group for over three years, and prior to this spent four years with Triton Showers in sales and specification as well as nine years with Coca Cola in similar sales roles.
Fellow new Project Specification Manager Derek Hopwood is just as experienced, having joined four years ago from Roman Showers where he was Area Sales Manager.
In their new roles, Robert and Derek will draw on their wealth of sales experience and in-depth knowledge of the Roca and Laufen brands and products in order to support architects and designers on the bathroom specifications for their non-residential projects.
Covering designated areas, Robert and Derek will take overall responsibility for ensuring customers experience a smooth transition from specification through to final installation.
“I am very much looking forward to taking on this new challenge,” comments Derek. “Both the Roca and Laufen brands have an unrivalled reputation for quality and innovation and, as Project Specification Managers, Robert and myself are responsible for maintaining this status, ensuring that the specification process runs smoothly and that customers are well supported throughout the design and installation process, regardless of the size of the job.”
