Waxman Energy, a specialist in the design and distribution of solar photovoltaic systems, has promoted Mark Powell to the role of National Sales Director.

Powell joined The Waxman Group nine years ago, originally starting out in operations and making the transition to sales for Waxman’s ceramics business, before moving to Waxman Energy when it was first established in 2007. 

Richard Waxman, Chairman of The Waxman Group said: “Mark is a hugely passionate and driven individual. This coupled with his ability to lead our sales team while accessing new markets make him the perfect choice for this pivotal role, as we prepare for the next chapter in the growth of our business.”

Powell commented: “These are exciting times for the renewables industry and having witnessed the phenomenal growth of the PV sector over the past few years, I am delighted to take up the role of national sales director for Waxman Energy. I am looking forward to taking the business to the next stage in our growth, developing our presence in existing markets while seeking out and capitalising on opportunities in new ones.”

Waxman Energy is the main UK distributor for some of the market leading solar brands, including LG Solar, Suntech, Bosch Solar, Phono Solar and Panasonic.
