Halifax Vogel Group (HVG) has today welcomed back one of its senior sales and management staff, announcing the appointment of Phil Ricardo as Technical Sales Manager – Victoria for Alucobond Architectural.

Based in Melbourne, Mr Ricardo will be responsible for driving sales growth of Alucobond aluminium composite material in the Victorian market, liaising with architects, fabricators and installers.

He brings an already extensive knowledge of the Alucobond brand and the local market to the role, having worked as part of Alucobond Architectural’s sales and management teams in the past.

“Phil previously held a number of senior sales and management roles in our Victorian operation before leaving to see if the grass was greener elsewhere – it wasn’t,” said Mark Bradfield, Business Manager, Alucobond Architectural.

“His experience with aluminium composite material, sales ability and relationships in the Victorian facade market will ensure he is able to slot into this new role very quickly.”

Mr Ricardo’s appointment follows the recent promotion of Mr Bradfield to the position of Business Manager for Alucobond Architectural.

Mr Ricardo will support Mr Bradfield and National Sales & Technical Manager Bill Kerr to ensure Alucobond Architectural maintains its status as a market leader in Australia.

“Our clients have come to expect us to provide versatile products, informed advice and competitive pricing and having a dedicated person like Phil on the team will ensure we continue to meet those expectations,” said Mr Bradfield.
