dormakaba Announces Several Changes to Expanding Sales Division

Andy Chapman

dormakaba is bidding Andy Chapman, Product Sales Division Manager a fond farewell from the business after 30 years of service; and has announced that Fiona Adams will be stepping into the role. 

In addition, two new Territory Sales Representatives have been brought into the business to support its continued growth.

Joining the business in 1990 as a Territory Salesperson, Andy Chapman will now be taking a well-deserved retirement.

David Stacey, Regional Sales Director at dormakaba, says:
“Andy Chapman has consistently delivered superb, experienced-based knowledge for the benefit of his customers and his teams. For many years he has also shared this expertise and supported the GAI Education program through lecturing, helping to write materials and invigilating at the exams, committing a considerable amount of personal time to the industry.’’
“As a business, we will miss Andy in his (well deserved) retirement, but for me personally, I will be saying adieu to a trusted confident and a friend.”

Fiona Adams
Fiona Adams, currently Sales Manager at dormakaba, has been announced as Andy’s replacement.

Having worked in the construction industry for over a decade, Fiona has joined dormakaba and has quickly developed a strong passion for its products and customer focus.

David continues:
“It is a pleasure to welcome Fiona Adams to the role as a successor to Andy. Having joined dormakaba in October 2019 and moving from South Africa, she brings with her expertise in the supply of performance critical products through specialist distribution channels, coupled with  an approach that will continue to maintain our client focus and add value to the business. I look forward to seeing the Product Sales Division continue to evolve with Fiona at the helm.”
dormakaba has also recruited two new Territory Sales representatives, to support its commitment to expansion and growth – Abi Ogunkeye, Territory Sales Person for Mechanical Key Systems & Access Control products, and Nick Burns, Territory Sales Person for Door Hardware in the Southern and Central UK areas.

Nick previously worked as a key account manager for Thyssenkrupp and Abi joins us from Hilti UK Ltd.
“It’s exciting to join dormakaba in this period of growth and a privilege to have the opportunity to work for a company with the first-class reputation for product and services,” says Nick. 
Both Abi and Nick’s roles will rely on prior excellent customer service experience to maintain current customer relationships whilst also growing and developing new business.

David Stacey concludes:
“It continues to be an exciting time at dormakaba, as we continue to develop following the merger of DORMA and Kaba. We are dedicated to delivering unparalleled service and innovative solutions, and I have no doubt our team will enhance this ethos significantly.”
