Date: 06/12/22 | In: Press release

Global wastewater monitoring specialists, Detectronic, has strengthened its leadership team by appointing a new sales director and promoting a long-term member of the team.

Paul Wade, a former Royal Navy electronics engineer, was appointed Sales Director back in September and replaces Neil Butler, who was promoted to managing director last year.

Diane Dumon, who has been with the company for over a decade, has been promoted to Operations Director. She will be responsible for streamlining the operational and business processes to deliver seamless support to Detectronic’ s growing customer base.

Commenting on the appointments, managing director at Detectronic, Neil Butler said: “It’s been a real pleasure to welcome Paul to our senior management team. Since joining, he’s been focusing on further enhancing our sales strategy as well as developing our channel partner programme to ensure we maximise our potential within the global water industry.

“Diane’s promotion to operations director was a natural progression for her and we are proud to have seen her grow as an individual during the time she has been part of the team. In her position as operations manager, Diane was responsible for the day to day running of our manufacturing operations and has been instrumental in facilitating the business growth over the last two years.”

Back in April, the company recorded a turnover of £6.7 million up almost £4 million compared to 2020, largely in response to a new product launch. This growth also resulted in Detectronic increasing staff numbers by 84% since April 2020 and is set to continue with its latest new product launch next month.
