Furthermore, we are working with a variety of partners to develop and test products and systems for the distribution of hydrogen through Britain’s existing gas networks.’
Tom has already started to build his network of industry connections whilst getting to grips with the breadth of the AVK UK, Donkin offer:
‘I will be playing a key role in building strategic relationships with merchants, contractors and utilities. My previous success in sales has been based on detailed product knowledge, planning and hard work and I intend to follow the same approach with AVK UK.
We are living through unusual times with remote working, online learning and digital communications. However, I am leveraging every opportunity I can, to introduce myself to customers and get hands-on experience of the extensive AVK UK, portfolio of solutions, valves and fittings.’
Born and bred in Nottingham and Derby respectively, after school Tom followed his passion for sports by studying for personal trainer qualifications in Liverpool; a decision undeniably influenced by his enduring support for Liverpool FC.
Tom continues to participate in sports, playing outside centre for Derby RFC. Free time has, however, been significantly reduced by the arrival, in recent years, of a son and a daughter with sporting interests of their own.
