Oli Willson has been announced to take over responsibility for GORE-TEX Professional’s UK sales in the fire market, replacing Suzanne Prince, who has made the decision to move on after 15 years in the role.

Willson has been with GORE-TEX Professional for three years, working with the footwear team across Europe in workwear and emergency services sectors. He will bring a ‘head to toe’ approach to UK with a portfolio of GORE-TEX products designed to deliver high performance firefighter protection in structural and rescue gear.

GORE-TEX moisture barriers protect most of the UK’s firefighters and Oli will continue to work with fire and rescue services and garment manufacturers to provide the highest standard service, supported by GORE-TEX Professional technical specialist Vivienne Hildebrandt.

Commenting on his new role, Willson said: “I’m excited to take on this new role and looking forward to continuing our strong relationships with fire and rescue services across the country. Our focus is on understanding firefighters needs and providing the best possible protection that allows them to do their job with full confidence in their gear.

“Everyone in the team would like to thank Suzanne for her commitment to Gore and the Fire Service over the last 15 years and we wish her all the very best for the future.”
