WELCOME TO THE TEAM!
NeüFenster is ecstatic to be building such an incredible team across Canada. Let us welcome Kate Lindsay, our newest addition to the team, who is tackling the position of Director of Sales in the Ontario region.
Kate will be helping grow the Internorm brand in Canada and the USA, by increasing sales with new and existing customers.
She aims to help architects and developers realize projects to their fullest potential, by properly informing them of the various benefits quality European windows have to offer.
A very insightful, logical and amiable individual, Kate is eager to take on the North American market, where she can share her expertise and knowledge regarding the most efficient products to suit her clients’ needs.
LIFE IN THE UK
Kate joins us from North-West England, where she worked for a premium building materials organization as Business Development Manager and later as Sales Director UK & Ireland.
There, Kate successfully developed the existing independent partner from a small local business to what is now a national network operating throughout the UK and Ireland.
She managed to increase sales for the brand and, in turn, further increase and solidify brand awareness.
In 2010, Kate introduced the Internorm premium product line into the range that was offered from their showroom. She has much experience with the Internorm brand and it’s products, which will allow her to further assist her NeüFenster clients.
Kate was exposed at an early age to building materials, as she was only 4 years old when her parents established their own premium window firm. Already showing signs of interest, Kate worked with her parents on weekends and school holidays for some pocket money. She then attended university, successfully completing her BSc (Hons) in Retailing from UMIST Manchester in 2003.
After university, Kate began a career in advertising but realized she wanted to continue pursuing a career in the industry she grew up in, and eventually went back to the world of building materials in 2009. It’s no surprise Kate is ready to take on the next challenge here in North America; she was born for it!
DID YOU KNOW?
Kate is very excited to challenge herself at NeüFenster, but she is also extremely keen on exploring her new country. A wine enthusiast, she enjoys studying the WSET wine curriculum and appreciating local wineries.
Kate is currently learning Swedish and enjoys traveling to Sweden regularly as her fiancé, Magnus, is from Swedish Lappland. Although he may be more used to the Canadian climate than Kate, we think she will settle into her new country wonderfully.
Wishing Kate an exciting, driving and stimulating experience with her new team at NeüFenster. We also hope for a smooth transition for Kate and her fiancé Magnus, as they commence their lives in Toronto, Canada.
Help us welcome Kate, by leaving a friendly like and comment below like a true Canadian! Eh?
If you wish to book a consultation with Kate, she is currently offering virtual meetings during Covid 19 restrictions and will later be taking showroom appointments at our Toronto location.
Welcome to the team, Kate!
