Capital’s Sales Team Expands

Capital’s European sales team is growing thanks to the addition of a new area sales manager.

Roberto Gómez, 39, from Bilbao, Spain, joined the company earlier this year. In his new role which covers Spain, Portugal and Latin America, he will be building new contacts, working with existing customers and promoting Capital’s extensive product range.

Before joining Capital Roberto worked in a variety of roles, including as a sales manager for two Indian refractory companies, IFGL Refractories and OCL, part of the Dalmia Bharat group.

More recently he also worked as an exports manager for Caesa, a rope manufacturer in Spain and he has also worked as a product manager for wire rope company Vinco, part of the Lontana group of companies.

Roberto has a degree in Chemistry and a Masters Degree in Chemical Engineering and Sustainable Development.

On joining Capital, Roberto said: “I decided to step up again and go back full time to the market I’ve always loved - refractories. I have joined Capital Refractories to be part of a great team of people.

He added: “I hope in time to establish myself as a key part of the Capital Refractories’ sales team, while providing my personal touch and also bringing my experience in lesser explored areas such as steelmaking.”

In his spare time, Roberto who lives in Bilbao with his wife Nerea, two children Enzo and Zarek, and cat Angus, enjoys family life. He also plays electric and Spanish guitar and reads fantasy and technology books.
