WALLTITE is pleased to announce the appointment of Chris Gater as the new Business Manager- Insulation. Chris will be responsible for business strategy in the UK and Ireland with a strong focus on sales, marketing and development.
Chris has relocated from Canada following 11 years experience working with BASF predominantly in the sales of Exterior Insulated Finish Systems. Dual nationality has provided Chris with many exciting opportunities as he has previously worked in the UK on the development of Canary Wharf’s fire stopping in curtain wall construction.
Already well versed in insulation from his experience in BASF’s Construction Chemicals division of Wall Systems, he now looks ahead to his next challenge:
‘I’m very excited to join the WALLTITE team in the UK. It’s a great opportunity for me to learn more about the different divisions of BASF and grow within the BASF family within a well established and close knit team.’
Chris continues, ‘I’ve seen the success of WALLTITE in Canada and I intend to replicate the product’s excellent reputation in the UK. Spray foam insulation will be particularly important with the introduction of the Green Deal this year and it’s growing popularity within the newbuild market.’
Chris adds, ‘On a personal note, I am looking forward to starting a new life in the UK. I relish living in the countryside and enjoying the serene beauty of the Peak District.’
Chris joined the team July 1 to help further the continuing success of WALLTITE as an ideal insulation in terms of air tightness and thermal efficiency.
