Halifax Vogel Group (HVG Decorative Building Products ) has moved to further strengthen its sales team in Western Australia, announcing the appointment of Shane Nicholls as Account Manager – Building Products.
In his new role, Mr Nicholls will be responsible for encouraging sales growth of HVG’s far-reaching range of decorative building products for the architectural, building and construction industries in Western Australia.
He brings to the company a wealth of hands-on experience in building and construction, having worked in the construction industry off and on as a trade assistant for nearly two decades.
“I’ve constructed home extensions, renovated houses, gutted and reclad interiors, and fitted kitchens and bathrooms. But I consider my true industry to be selling and I’m looking forward to developing a strong and lasting relationship with customers in my role with HVG,” said Mr Nicholls.
HVG’s building products portfolio includes the popular CREAstyle and CREAmetal ranges of high pressure laminates, Zenolite, the alternative to glass panels, SmartStone engineered quartz and marble, Dibond aluminium composite materials as well as the Seratone lightweight, high-density fibreboards.
Mr Nicholls already has experience working with the HVG range, having most recently served as a kitchen design consultant and sales representative for Ross's Makeovers, a cabinet making business that used both the CREAstyle and Zenolite products.
In a diverse career, he has also worked in the airline, hospitality and leisure industries.
“Shane’s wide-ranging sales experience and familiarity with the HVG brand made him an ideal candidate for the Account Manager position and I’ve no doubt he will be a valuable asset in helping us to expand our building products presence in Western Australia,” said John Wood, WA Branch Manager, Halifax Vogel Group.
