Siemens has expanded its sales team serving the UK and Ireland fire safety markets with the announcement of the appointment of Marios Malone.
Malone joins the company from Eaton, where he worked as a regional sales manager in the fire division.
At Siemens he will be a regional sales manager for the South, focusing on the company’s Cerberus PRO open protocol fire protection system and its Aspirating Smoke Detection (ASD) range, which uses red/blue optical technology to detect fire at the earliest incipient stage.
He brings more than 20 years of experience in the fire safety industry and is looking forward to the challenges his new role will bring.
“Siemens has an excellent reputation in the fire safety arena, particularly in terms of its ongoing contribution to the digitalisation of systems,” he said.
“It is an interesting and exciting time to be involved as we move towards increasingly-intelligent systems which are now realising the potential afforded by cloud-based solutions.”
Rob Yates, Siemens’ head of building products for fire safety in the UK and Ireland, added: “This appointment reflects the increased interest in, and adoption of, Siemens solutions in the UK and Ireland, particularly Cerberus PRO following the innovations brought about through the introduction of the IP8 version.
“I am sure Marios will make an important contribution in working with our network of partners to ensure we are offering effective protection for people and buildings based around a product portfolio focused on improving monitoring, maintenance, and planning."
