Adveco Appoints UK Sales Manager

Commercial heating and hot water specialist Adveco, has appointed Greg Brushett as UK sales manager, responsible for all Adveco and A.O. Smith Water Heaters product and system sales. As part of the appointment, Greg has spearheaded a review and restructuring of the UK sales function to drive greater focus on supporting customer engagement.

Greg brings more than a decade of sales and engineering expertise in the commercial heating and hot water industry. Starting as a regional sales manager at Rinnai, he originally joined A.O. Smith Water Heaters in 2011 as a sales engineer. Having moved to Viessmann in 2014 in the role of area business manager (commercial & renewables), he has taken the opportunity to return to Adveco and A.O. Smith Water Heaters to manage UK sales.

“Between Adveco and A.O. Smith, we have a strong and highly competitive product offering,”

says Greg Brushett, UK sales manager, Adveco.

“Now, we can back that with the best possible service for customers. We have focussed on building our professional sales teams to ensure that there is no single point of failure. Customers can be assured there will always be access to the specialist technical sales knowledge that sets Adveco apart when sourcing product for commercial applications and projects.”

Customers of Adveco and A.O. Smith Water Heaters are supported by dedicated specification sales and account sales teams, both backed by in-house application engineers. The new team structures are important, ensuring the sales team members never feel isolated and customers always have an informed point of contact – critical for projects that can be complex and typically require a bespoke response.

“The new sales team structure is also really important in allowing us to bring on new talent, leveraging the existing experience within the team to nurture the next generation of application engineers and specialist specification sales,”

adds Greg.

“By recently expanding our graduate intake across these teams we are not only taking positive steps towards addressing the growing national skills shortage within the engineering sector, but also strengthening our business for long term growth as we embrace new technologies and expand into new commercial markets.”

Building a Better Future – Career Development at Adveco

With Adveco, graduates can join a team that, by partnering with our commercial and government customers, help create comfortable, functional, efficient, sustainable and safe buildings that address the needs for a zero-carbon future.

The company is well placed to invest in the development and support of graduates wishing to design, supply, commission and service professional, high-quality bespoke hot water and heating systems for the building services industry. Today, the company is one of the UK’s most trusted specialist providers for this demanding field where systems and services support business-critical activity.

From engineering to sales and support, Adveco offers graduates the opportunity to work in an industry that can help make a difference through invaluable design, supply, commissioning and service of bespoke, business-critical hot water, heating and power systems across health, education, leisure, retail and light industry estates.

Yoesra Imam and Bradley Martin are the latest graduates to join the company within the sales function with responsibilities for the Midlands area.

For Bradley, graduating from Sheffield Hallam University with a BSc in sports coaching has meant he comes with a good understanding of what it takes to work in a close-knit team in a highly competitive environment. “Due to my sporting background I really enjoy a challenge,” he says. “In the mid-term, this will be getting the name out there to clients. We are not just A.O. Smith the hot water company, we are Adveco.”

Yoesra recently graduated from the University of Kent with a BSc (Hons) in Financial Economics with Econometrics. A self-confessed ‘people person’, Yoesra explains, “My degree was really interesting, but just not something I would want to spend my life doing. I like being around people, not being bogged down every day by numbers in an office space. Taking on this sales role enables me to balance that business focus with a more social role. Adveco has a great culture and I have been able to really fit in quickly.”

The roles do mean both can expect to be on the road much of the week, meeting existing and potential customers, developing new opportunities and supporting projects by facilitating expertise from the wider company. This is a crucial aspect of the role as customers – from consultants, specifiers and engineers to site owners and facility managers – will have very particular needs that balance exceeding latest legislation whilst meeting project expectations, delivery dates and budget.

“Although new to the industry, I really want to push the new Adveco product range along with my own personal development. I chose sales because no two deals are the same,” Bradley says. “I really thrive off getting the best deal, not only for the company but also for our clients. That is what will enable me to build long-lasting relationships in this industry.”

As with any graduate entering their first role, expectation is tempered by experience, and Adveco works hard to ensure new employees are welcomed and given the best possible training to support their day to day needs and help give them the necessary experience as quickly as possible. That starts for many before they join the company through outreach with organisations such as CIBSE, where Adveco offers approved training seminars and is a strong proponent of work carried out by the Young Engineers Network (CIBSE YEN).

Yoesra Imam, Adveco“I never actually considered the construction industry before,” admits Yoesra, “But in my first few weeks, it has become something that I have become passionately interested in. Everyone needs heating and hot water!” Bradley agrees, observing, “This is a rapidly growing company with huge potential.”

If you are not a graduate, Adveco also supports apprenticeships for those interested in gaining hands-on experience and developing new, practical skills. With opportunities to shadow and learn from our gas engineers on the ground, and with support provided in attaining industry recognised accreditation, there is a variety of ways we can help you achieve your potential.
