UK: Mark Henderson is to step down from his role as commercial director at refrigeration and air conditioning wholesaler FSW at the end of the year.

Henderson’s career in the industry spans some 39 years having started as a management trainee with J&E Hall in 1979. A spell with cabinet manufacturer, Sadia, was followed by 17 years with NRS, now known as Climate Center, where he rose to become sales & marketing director.

He joined NRW in 2003, which later merged with RPW to become FSW. Since then, the business owned by Fridge Spares Wholesale in Ireland has grown to become the UK’s largest national independent wholesaler.

In addition to its 24 branch wholesale network, the UK business also comprises the JustOneCall & NRWfm retail support operations, specialist cabinet spares supplier ESP and manufacturing arm Beacon Design & Engineering.

“We have come a long way since 2010 but it is time for a new team to take the business to the next level” Mark Henderson commented.

“I will continue to provide some support to FSW for as long as they require it,” he added.
