Knauf Insulation has announced the recent appointment of John Sinfield as Managing Director, Northern Europe.
The role will see John Sinfield managing the company’s operations across the UK, Ireland, Norway, Sweden, Denmark and Finland, as well as having a seat on the Knauf Insulation Group Management Board. John has over 20 years commercial experience in heavy side building materials in the UK and prior to his new appointment, he was Sales Director for UK and Ireland at Knauf Insulation for the last four years.
John replaces Mark Andrews, who will become the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Knauf Insulation North America. Mark has been with the company for eight years and has been an instrumental force in steering the business into its market leading position along with instigating and leading the market entry into the Nordic countries.
John Sinfield comments: “To strategically steer and lead the company through a time where insulation is recognised as a significant factor in the design of buildings provides some great opportunities for Knauf Insulation and I am looking forward to capitalising on these in my new role”.
“2010 marks an important and challenging time for the market with the step changes in Building Regulations Part L, the development of the zero carbon definition and revisions on the Code for Sustainable Homes. It is therefore crucial to continue the company’s commitment to providing energy efficient solutions for buildings and further strengthening and developing its market position.”
