Fantech Ventilation Ireland Announces New Leadership Team

Elta Group business, Fantech Ventilation Ireland, has announce two key appointments following the retirement of founder and managing director, Brendan O’Toole.Mark Russell succeeds O’Toole as managing director, moving up from his previous role as sales director of Fantech, and will have his previous position filled by Murray Anderson who formerly served as national sales and export manager for AMS (Elta Group’s fan and acoustic HVAC solutions business)..

Fantech Ventilation was originally set-up by Brendan in 1999, and is now one of the Republic of Ireland’s most visible manufacturers and suppliers of ventilation products.

As one of the longest serving members of Elta Group, O’Toole who has worked in various roles for a period exceeding three decades, leaves a rich legacy across the business. Reflecting on Fantech, he says: “It all started in my front room, the boot of my Nissan 120Y, complete with towbar, box trailer, personal mobile phone and computer.

“I had represented Elta Group founders, Ray and David Ball for 14 years. I knew the people and the product pedigree, so joining them was an easy choice.”

Fantech Ventilation Ireland’s new managing director, Russell, says “Brendan has been a huge credit not just to Fantech but to the industry as a whole with his passion, desire, knowledge and expertise in ventilation and fan technology.

“I certainly have big shoes to fill, and we are going to continue Brendan’s good work, with the aim of delivering innovative products, reducing energy consumption and creating more sustainable, healthy buildings.”

Mark Rickard, Elta Group CEO, adds: “Unfortunately for us, Brendan has chosen to retire to enjoy the good life with his family.

“We will not forget the contribution that Brendan has made, the business that he has built, the people that he has mentored. He leaves Fantech Ventilation in great health and with great prospects for continued growth in the future.”
