Sherwin-Williams appointment promotes opportunity for repairers

Tom will deliver market opportunities and profitable revenue streams for repairers through identifying new products and developing its existing refinish paint technologies.

Since joining the global paint manufacturer in February 2010 as export account administrator before being appointed as stock controller, Tom has been heavily involved in Sherwin-Williams’ planning and forecasting. His new role will develop responsibility in this area by listening to customer requirements and working closely with the US headquarters in Warrensville Heights, Ohio to bring the opportunities to market.

Reporting into Matthew Palmer, UK financial controller, Tom will divide his time between the company’s UK head office in Sheffield and its European base in Pomezia, near Rome.

Mike Fowler, business development director EMEA, Sherwin-Williams, said, ‘Tom’s expertise in planning and market analysis will enable us to be more agile in meeting market demands and to present repairers with opportunities that can benefit their businesses through the continued development of profit-led refinish paint systems. He’s an asset to the global marketing team.’
