Business Development Manager

Meet Adrian, our Business Development Manager for the Southern region, who shares his invaluable insights from his background in the construction industry and discusses his new venture at Quelfire.


I have worked in the construction sector for the last 23 years now, starting off in underground water storage tanks and petrol interceptors. In 2004 I moved on to working in the washroom market, selling to both specifiers and contractors. I was privileged to be involved in some very high profile, executive washroom installations with my final project being the Coca-Cola HQ. In 2012 an opportunity opened up for me to change course slightly and work a bit more locally, working with landscape architects and contractors providing solutions for specifically new tree planting in urban areas. After 11 years in the landscape world, I have once again decided to pursue a new venture and joined the team here at Quelfire.


My role here at Quelfire, as Business Development Manager for the Southern region, will be to engage directly with both existing and new customers in providing firestopping solutions for their projects. This involves delivering training sessions, CPD presentations, and face-to-face visits.

What he most enjoys about his job

I enjoy working with a team who are passionate about fire safety and saving lives through the correct use of tried and tested firestopping products.

What he likes about working for Quelfire

Great team to work with and a good, happy atmosphere. The hot lunch on a Friday is also a good weekly treat!

What he enjoys doing when not working

Living within a few miles of the Welsh border, family days out with a good BBQ in the Welsh countryside, and preferably near water are always enjoyable. (That is provided it’s not raining!)
