Sentinel Commercial’s lifetime boiler and system protection solutions are clearly winning over the commercial building market; the water treatment specialist has welcomed yet another area manager to its team in order to cope with rising demand. The appointment follows shortly on from two new area managers in 2016.
Russ Walliss has taken on the role of Commercial Sector Manager for the South, and is responsible for providing effective technical sales services to meet the individual needs of a range of commercial clients including specifiers, local authorities, healthcare providers and design and build contractors. Russ will be a familiar face to many in the heating industry, having occupied senior roles in the sector for more than 35 years, including Area Sales and Support Services Management positions with Hamworthy Heating, as well as Mechanical Package and Contracts Manager for Colt International.
The valuable experience and expertise offered by Russ is being fully utilised by Sentinel Commercial, as his new role includes the assessment of suitable water treatment solutions using the company’s chemical applications and limescale prevention device, KalGUARD. Specifically, Russ will form value propositions for end-user clients, liaise with boiler and component manufacturers to ensure end-to-end solutions, and work alongside consulting engineers and contractors to provide specification and onsite advice. He will also deliver best practice training via CPD seminars.
“Having worked in the heating industry for most of his career, Russ has first-hand knowledge of the damaging effects of poor water treatment on commercial heating and hot water systems – not to mention the impact on end-users and supply chain parties responsible for installing and maintaining those systems. We’re talking about boiler breakdowns, call-backs, expensive remedial works, and significant energy wastage, to list but a few problems,” said Chris Shelton, Sales Director at Sentinel Commercial.
“As Commercial Sector Manager, Russ puts this experience to good use, helping our customers to avoid these pitfalls, save tens of thousands of pounds and prevent untold hassle. Instead, Russ is focused on supplying Sentinel Commercial’s best practice water treatment solutions, which are able to deliver lifetime protection from corrosion and limescale. Russ is a real asset to our team and our customers, and we’re delighted to have him on board,” he concluded.
