Lancaster strengthens GEZE UK’s window technology sales force

GEZE UK’s expansion continues with the appointment of Stephen Lancaster who takes up the role of sales manager within window technology supply and installation, covering the Northern region.

Stephen will be primarily responsible for the supply and installation sales of GEZE’s wide range of window technology products for smoke extraction and natural ventilation.

This will involve forging strong relationships with key fabricators in the North of England and Scotland and assisting them with technical compliance issues.

With wide experience as an architectural technologist for a number of practices across Harrogate and Leeds, including Smith Smalley, DLG Architects and S+SA Architects, Stephen is ideally placed to ensure that fabricators are aware of both the latest regulations and the comprehensive range of GEZE products available. Further expertise comes from his role as architectural project manager for Aluminium system house, Schuco, where he assisted architects in specification and provided technical input.

A Leeds Metropolitan University graduate, Stephen was proud to receive the ‘Stephen George Excellence Award’ for the best dissertation on his BSc (Hons) Architectural Technology course. This paper revealed how off-site construction methods could be utilised to achieve high fabric performance in the drive towards carbon neutrality, together with the perception of housebuilders adopting this approach.

Stephen said:

“I have always been aware of GEZE as a strong name in the industry from my early days as an architectural technologist. GEZE is a well-respected company with good core values, run as a family business, making it very appealing to be associated with.”

Andy Howland, sales director of GEZE UK, commented:

“Stephen is an excellent addition to our growing sales team. His understanding of the market, technical knowledge, personality, not least familiarity with the Northern territory makes him the ideal, front-facing ambassador for GEZE in this region.”

When not presenting to fabricators, Stephen can often be found on the football pitch, where he is gradually building up his strength after three years out due to an injury. A keen socialiser, he also enjoys music festivals; Glastonbury is a particular favourite.
