Visqueen has appointed Steve D’Arcy as Technical Sales Manager in the North West.
With more than 30 years of experience in the construction industry, Steve has worked for various waterproofing and gas-proofing providers in product research, training and technical sales.
Steve will assist specifiers and contractors in the development of specifications for waterproofing and gas protection, as well as utilising his training skills to develop new training programmes for Visqueen’s customers and staff.
Steve comments, “Building regulations and codes of practice for gas protection and below-ground waterproofing have evolved significantly over the past few years. Understanding these new standards has formed a key part of Visqueen’s recent R&D and sales support programme, and it was clear to me that supporting this through the development of new training programmes was precisely the next career challenge that I was looking for.”
