A history of industry experience
Growing up with a father who was a Chartered Building Services Engineer, it was inevitable that Chris Sheldon would follow in his footsteps and forge a career in the Building Services market.
Chris gathered knowledge within the industry by working as a CAD Technician for his father’s design consultancy. With a passion for controls, he started up a business to provide automation solutions for domestic and commercial clients. This business developed into a HVAC / Renewables distribution business, providing his client base with solutions covering specialist areas of the Building Services market (Air Conditioning / Ventilation & Renewables).
Through a relationship with one of his customers, Chris gained an opportunity to join a prominent manufacturer of ventilation systems as an Area Sales and Technical Manager. There, he promoted and supported their range of equipment through their existing distribution channels.
In recent years, Chris has taken key roles in business specialising in Ventilation / Mechanical services, providing clients with a one-stop solution; including design, procurement and installation services with projects ranging from £10k to £250k.
This history of experience has instilled an ambition in Chris’ approach to management. He plans to assist CK Direct in growing their market share, both through existing and new channels.
“In time I would like to be a key member of the CK Direct team”, said Chris, “and take on additional responsibilities to future-proof the business as the opportunity arises.”
