Hamilton creates bespoke new role
Jim Berry, Regional Manager
18 January 2012Decorative electrical wiring accessories, audio and lighting controls manufacturer Hamilton Litestat has announced the appointment of new regional manager Jim Berry, who will work mainly with architects, designers and contractors in the London area across both residential and commercial markets.
Hamilton created the new role especially for Jim, 31, who recently returned from the Middle East where he worked as a sales director in the electrical industry. He has expert knowledge of the whole supply chain having trained as an electrician and worked in wholesale and manufacturing. The new role with Hamilton involves working with contractors and consultants to tailor wiring accessory solutions for each project, drawing from Hamilton’s wide range of products and bespoke design service.
Jim will be able to meet clients at Hamilton’s dedicated space at The Building Centre in central London and will be primarily based out of the capital, where he lives.
“It’s fantastic to be joining a UK company with over 40 years’ experience supplying mainly British-made products,” said Jim. “What also really stood out for me is that Hamilton can provide a bespoke product design service for projects that require something unique. Whether it’s a particular function or visual design we can produce special products to meet our clients’ briefs, no matter how big or small. Meeting specifiers and answering these challenges is something I’m looking forward to doing with Hamilton.”
Ian Hamilton, managing director of decorative electrical wiring accessory, lighting and multi-room audio manufacturer Hamilton Litestat, examines how upselling and upgrading wiring accessories on a small scale can add value to contracts even on smaller projects.
