U-POL has made two key appointments, strengthening its UK and Ireland team, which reflect the company’s focus on creating value and sustainable business future for its stakeholders and customers.

Rob Sparrow has been appointed to the new role of Head of Business for the UK and Republic of Ireland. Rob brings a wealth of knowledge and commercial experience, having held the UK Head of Business Development role.

Tim Pugh commented: “During the past four years with U-POL, Rob has worked successfully with the Irish and UK sales teams to create strong business relations and partnerships across Ireland and UK. Both markets have exciting future potential and, in this new role, Rob will have wide responsibility, not just for sales activity but also for all strategic planning, from market analysis through to new product development and launch initiatives.”

Rob Sparrow: “U-POL is a growing organisation with clear business goals. I am delighted to have the opportunity to shape the growth for the UK market.” In order to continue strengthening relations with key accounts and also focus on major end user groups, Lisa Parkes has been promoted to UK Key Account Manager.

Rob commented: “As part of the UK sales team, Lisa has been a strong and influential member and her performance has earned respect with major accounts and colleagues. Lisa has the critical role in our plans to take the core UK market onto the next level.”
