IAL expands team

International Applications (IAL) has made three key appointments as the Oxfordshire-based paints, coatings and consumables supplier continues to strengthen its sales and marketing team.

Shaun Perry joins as business development manager, taking responsibility for the strategic and commercial management of IAL’s refinish distributor customer accounts in the north of the UK; Jodie Kempster moves into the role of business development executive; and Jez Chapman, joins as marketing manager.

Keith Parvin, IAL’s sales and marketing director, said, ‘Our business is experiencing significant growth and it’s important that we strengthen ourselves to meet the opportunities ahead of us. These latest additions to our sales and marketing team continue our recent track record of attracting high-calibre individuals to the IAL team – and I’m pleased to say that more appointments are soon to be announced. Watch this space.’

IAL recently announced that it had secured significant investment from Eguchi Iwao, Japan’s leading supplier of automotive and industrial paints, coatings, sealants and adhesives.

IAL supplies to refinish distributors and operates a specialist line-side supply service to automotive and industrial customers, offering vendor management, process and product optimisation, technical support and cost-down activity.
