Daikin Simone O'Connor

Simone O’Connor has joined Daikin UK as Deputy Marketing Manager. O’Connor, a senior marketing professional with more than 20 years’ cross-sector experience, joins the company fresh from several high-profile marketing roles.

O’Connor comes on board at a very exciting time for both Daikin UK and the sector: “It’s thrilling to be joining the market leader in environmentally responsible, renewable energy heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) systems at a time of such profound change within the industry,” she said.

“HVAC is no longer just about little white boxes and air conditioning – it’s about developing new ways to keep ahead of the Government’s carbon reduction targets and find ever-more energy efficient ways to heat and ventilate customers’ homes,” said O’Connor, who was previously Marketing Manager at training services company Thales Training & Consultancy. “I’m very pleased to be working with Daikin UK, a true innovator in this sector, and look forward to discovering how I can make a difference.”

Peter Verkempynck, Managing Director at Daikin UK, who has seen radical change in the industry since he joined it nearly 30 years ago, commented: “As the industry strives to find new ways to demonstrate how renewable energy technologies can help both individuals and businesses reach the carbon reduction targets laid out for the UK by 2020, Daikin UK is seeking to stay ahead of the curve – which is no easy task. With Simone’s wealth of senior level digital and direct-response marketing expertise and the breadth of her experience, I am sure she will make a great contribution.”

Simone, who has also held senior marketing roles at DMG Worldwide Media, LexisNexis, Faversham House Group, Reed Exhibitions and Telewest (now Virgin Media), will be based in Daikin UK’s head offices, in Weybridge, Surrey.
