Fujitsu adds to UK team
UK: Fujitsu has strengthened its UK presence with the appointments of Katie Ferguson as VRF business development manager, and Joanna Clarke as distribution account manager (north).
Katie Ferguson was previously regional manager with Kooltech and, before that, spent five years as a contract sales engineer with Daikin UK.
In her new role, Katie’s area will encompass Scotland, Northern Ireland and the North of England raising awareness of Fujitsu’s portfolio of products predominately focusing on developing VRF with end users, consultants, main contractors, mechanicals and air conditioning installers.
“It’s a great time for Fujitsu and for the region, and I’m really looking forward to helping local client’s succeed,” she said.
Joanna Clarke, who was previously with Clover Technical Services, will be working with the Fujitsu distribution team covering the M62 corridor, North of England and Scotland.
“It is an exciting time for me coming from a refrigeration and air conditioning service department as I do, and now progressing forward to work with a quality manufacturer in the distribution network,” she said.
