DecTek Personnel

Chris Betts

General Manager


DecTek welcomed Chris aboard in 2009. Recently promoted from Sales Manager, Chris now takes on the responsibilities of General Manager. He is responsible for sales enquiries and draws on great experience in both sales and customer care both in the UK and mainland Europe.
