Kubu and Avantis Hardware have just appointed Alastair Wheeler as their new national key accounts manager, bringing with him considerable experience and expertise within the hardware sector over the last 30 years.

This new role will involve the development of existing customers and also the introduction of new ones.  With the new window sensor, it’s a pivotal time for the Kubu brand as it looks to embrace the considerable opportunities in the smart home market.

Alastair Wheeler commented: ‘Having Known Mark Bromley, the CEO of Avantis Hardware and Kubu, for over 20 years now I’m thrilled to be joining the business at this stage of evolution. With a background of working for large global players in the hardware sector, I’m looking to bring in my skillset and to use it for the business and the betterment of the existing customer base too. With the Kubu door sensor technology already getting established in sectors of the fenestration industry and the new Kubu window sensor now firmly on the horizon, the opportunities for us and our customer partners in the smart home sector are going to be immense.’

Mark Bromley, CEO of Avantis Hardware and Kubu added: ‘Alastair’s experience combined with his personality, helpful nature, and insatiable work ethic, will make him an instant hit with all of our customers. It is often said that the assets of any good business are its team members, and our customers could not be in better hands as we look to accelerate the growth of Kubu.’
