Gary Richardson has joined SD Sealants, part of the SD Team group of businesses and the UK’s leading sealant and cosmetic repair company, as its new sales manager in the North West of England and Yorkshire.
The SD Team has seen rapid growth in the past three years, and Gary’s appointment will further strengthen our offering in the North West.
Gary has worked in the cosmetic repair industry for nearly a decade, having been national sales manager at Surface Medic, before branching out on his own in 2019 concentrating on the retail sector. The Covid-19 pandemic had a massive effect on his business and so Gary decided to join SD to use his expertise in retail and construction to further bolster the business in the region.
Nick Jones, Managing Director at SD Team, said of Gary’s appointment: “Gary’s knowledge of the needs of the retail, commercial and construction industry in this area is second to none and so we are really pleased to welcome him to the SD Team to reinforce our foothold in the North West.
“In the past three years we’ve launched services in Manchester, Yorkshire and Leeds and we’ve found that there are many great opportunities in these regions. Gary’s appointment as Sales Manager will help us expand further in these areas, as well as allow us to use his network and knowledge of the retail sector to secure work in this area when lockdown lifts.”
The SD Sealants division provides mastic application across a range of sectors including residential, hotel, catering and corporate buildings, and is currently recruiting for experienced applicators UK-wide.
Gary said of his appointment: “It is an exciting time to be joining SD Sealants as it has expanded massively in the north of England and it’s great to be part of that success story.
“Thanks to my experience, network and local knowledge of the construction, facilities management, retail and hospitality markets I feel I can make a real difference to the team here. I am really looking forward to chatting to clients past and present about the great offering and service we have at SD. There is plenty of scope to get out there and make a real impression and I’m looking forward to making my mark here.”
Launched in 1973, SD Sealants and Cosmetic Repairs originated as a family run business in Somerset that specialised in the supply and application of sealant.
Since then, the business has gone from strength to strength, becoming one of the UK’s largest sealant and cosmetic repair companies, with nine offices across England, Scotland and Wales.
