We are delighted to welcome Ian Poole to the Fire Depot team. Ian joins us as Head of Sales and will be working closely with our Sales and Customer Service teams, as well as being part of the Senior Management team.
Ian comes to Fire Depot with 16 years previous sales experience in the healthcare market, where he enjoyed helping people by understanding their challenges and helping solve them. He believes that the fire safety market will give him an interesting new challenge and will also mean that he can continue to do what he enjoys best - helping people, by keeping them safe from fire.
Ian is looking forward to going out to meet customers and getting to know them, as well as having the opportunity to grow sales, especially in the emerging Lithium-Ion battery fire safety market. He is already enjoying working with the Fire Depot team and embracing the company’s ‘One team, One vision’ culture.
Outside of work, Ian is a family man and spends as much time as he can with his wife and teenage son and daughter. They enjoy walking – at the coast whenever possible - music and playing sport – especially football.
Ian would describe himself as outgoing, fun and (slightly) controversial!
