The world’s leading cable cleat manufacturer, Ellis has appointed Dawn Williamson as its new UK sales manager.

Dawn, who joined Ellis in 1998, had held the position of UK sales administrator for the past 17-years and according to managing director, Richard Shaw was the perfect applicant for the post.

“What Dawn doesn’t know about cable cleats she could write on the back of a postage stamp,” he said.

“She also knows Ellis inside out and back to front;  has long-established relationships across every industry sector we operate in; already works well with all of our UK distributors; has great ideas about how to expand UK sales; and to top it all off – she was able to step into the new role without even changing desks.”

Ellis’ UK sales currently account for close to 50 per cent of the company’s annual £7-million turnover. The company works closely with a number of key distributors, including ETS Cable Components and MacLean Electrical, and has an active CPD programme that is opening doors with both consulting engineers and EPC contractors.

“It’s an exciting time to be handed the reins to UK sales,” said Dawn. “There’s development wherever you look – from wind power farms and proposed nuclear projects through to HS2, and that’s before you even take into account offshore projects, such as the Shetland Gas Plant that we recently finished supplying.”

“And the one thing all these developments have in common? They all need cable cleats, so I’ll not be short of potential specification targets for a long time to come.”
