Meet the Team: Gary Turner

Sliding Systems Specification Manager

Gary has been an influential member of the technical advice element of Hafele services for 14 years, and began his career with Hafele in the Architectural Ironmongery department. Now tasked as being the go-to expert for all things Sliding Door Gear, Gary is well-placed to find the perfect product for any application. Gary is quite a recent addition to the Projects Team, having managed the Technical Department for a number of years.

Building strong customer relationships is an important part of Gary’s role, and working together with clients to achieve beautiful and functional Sliding solutions is key to his success. Gary is ambitious, forward-thinking and personable, allowing him to help the team succeed.

In his spare time, Gary loves music and travel – especially when they’re combined! A recent highlight of Gary’s was watching Kasabian live at a historic Greek Amphitheatre in Taorminia, Sicily – somewhere almost as difficult to pronounce as Hafele!

Gary says: “Working within technical support for many years has given me the perfect platform to finesse my knowledge of sliding systems – and trust me, now I’ve seen it all! I love a challenge, and get real enjoyment out of facing down a problematic challenge and surprising a client with a fantastic solution. I haven’t had a problem defeat me yet, and look forward to the challenges still to come!”
