Ashley Chivers is new Sales Director for IKO Roofing Specification

After 12 months with IKO as National Accounts Manager Ashley Chivers has taken up the post of Sales Director, Roofing Specification. “I’m really enjoying the role,” says Ashley. “IKO is a great company to work for. We have so many things going for us – we manufacture in Britain, we have a strong product and service offering backed by a quality team and a supportive contractor network. I aim to ensure IKO continues to be recognised as a brand leader in this sector and that we offer the best solution to our clients.”

Ashley came to IKO from his post as Commercial Director, Britdoors, and has a strong background in the construction products industry, having worked for SIG for 5 years and Marley Waterproofing (now part of IKO group) before that. He’s looking forward to meeting the challenges of the new job. “Our biggest challenge is keeping ahead of a constantly changing market place,” continues Ashley. “Procurement routes, framework agreements, Academies, legislation, guarantees – they’re all subject to change. Maintaining a total understanding of the current situation and being aware of potential changes which could affect business will help us offer the best possible solutions to our clients.”

Ashley is a family man, with 3 young sons, and loves spending time with them. When he gets the chance he also enjoys sports – in particular rugby.
