Warren Rees has been appointed by leading fire detection product manufacturer Apollo Fire Detectors Ltd. as the new Managing Director with regional responsibility for Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA). Warren will work under previous MD Danny Burns, who is now Divisional Managing Director for the Apollo global group of companies with offices in the UK, USA and China.
Warren, who joins Apollo from sister Halma company Crowcon Detection Instruments Ltd., is a graduate in Applied Mathematics with extensive experience of both successful business management and the fire industry. He has previously held the position of Managing Director at Fire Fighting Enterprises Ltd., and before that at Cerberus UK – where he first encountered Apollo in a professional environment, as a competitor.
Talking about his appointment, Warren said: “Apollo has an enviable reputation for industry-leading product development, exceptional customer service and business growth, and I am excited about the opportunities we will have to both continue and build further on these proud traditions in the future. Apollo is clearly a company with the people, facilities and values to back up its reputation, and I’m delighted to now take on the challenge of taking us to the next step – both as a business, and for our customers’ benefit.”
