Future faces for Aberdeen



Alun Jenkins, General Manager

Mhairi Stephen, Internal Sales

Mark Kennedy, Business Development Manager
Econosto UK has recently undergone some radical changes resulting in the opportunity to create a new, dynamic team working out of our Aberdeen branch.


Following the departure of the previous General Manager and two sales staff who moved on to pastures new, the senior management at Econosto UK saw an opportunity to review how the branch operated and strengthen the team by improving the scope of the roles.

Alun Jenkins has been appointed to the expanded General Manager role. He brings a wealth of technical and commercial expertise to the company. Having started out as a heating engineer he then moved on through combustion service to his first sales role with Brooks & Walker - subsequently Brown & Tawse. By the time he left he was General Manager in Aberdeen with responsibility for both sales and operational activities. Valuable experience was gained with stints at Premier Valves and HSP amongst others, before becoming Business Development Manager at Haskel Energy Systems.

Mhairi Stephen is the latest addition to the Internal Sales team. Mhairi started her working life in the banking world but moved into industrial sales and is looking forward to the challenges of a busy valve sales office.

The most recent new face is Mark Kennedy who is appointed to the newly created role of Business Development Manager. The company believes the Aberdeen branch has much greater potential than so far achieved and Mark’s 17 years of experience in the valve industry puts him in a unique position to develop this. Having had hands-on experience working in offshore drilling before moving on to repair then technical sales and commercial development, Mark is fully able to understand the challenges facing our customers on a day-to-day basis, and to supply solutions to their needs.

Clive Gamble, Managing Director of Econosto UK commented “The changes in Aberdeen will bring a great new dynamic to our business in Scotland. There is still a good deal of untapped potential for our products and services and we are lucky to have a forward-looking team in place that can truly develop this for the future.”
