Cold applied liquid waterproofing specialist, Kemper System, is to build on its continued success in the flat roofing market with the appointment of David Hinton to the new role of specifier liaison manager.
David’s new role for Kemper System will see him utilise his years of experience dealing with a wide range of specifiers, property developers, architects, property consultants and surveyors to build on the company’s success in developing this route to market.
Well known in the roofing sector following a 30-year career, David was an early pioneer of Kemper System’s Kemperol waterproofing membrane products as sales manager for Granflex. Prior to Kemper System being established in the UK, Granflex was the sole UK distributor of Kemperol for more than a decade and David was instrumental in building the early brand awareness and sales in the UK that paved the way for Kemper System’s current UK business.
A fellow of the Institute of Roofing with an HND in Building and Construction, David has worked both as a national sales manager for a number of waterproofing system suppliers and as an area manager for a roofing contractor since leaving Granflex 12 years ago. His track record ensures that he not only understands the competitive landscape for waterproofing systems but also the challenges facing contractors and specifiers alike.
Commenting on David’s appointment, managing director of Kemper System, Harry Cowell said, “This is a key appointment for us, both because of the nature of the role and because of the person we have brought in to deliver it. David helped lay the foundations for Kemper System’s product range in the UK and in many ways, bringing him into the company is like bringing him home to us.”
“Strategically, his appointment is also a significant move as we look to increase the specification of Kemperol V210 and Kemperol 2K-PUR as named systems, supporting our roofing contractor delivery partners and continued growth of our market share.”
David comments: “Kemper System and the high quality range of Kemperol waterproofing products have grown from strength to strength in the UK and are now firmly established as the market leader in wet-on-wet, cold liquid applied systems. I’m delighted to rekindle my association with the Kemperol brand as the company enters an exciting new phase of growth and development.”
