Trucksmith has announced the appointment of Martin Hargreaves to the South West field sales team at its Devon headquarters.
The award-winning van converter has seen double digit revenue growth in the past 12 months and the role will broaden the capabilities of its developing sales team.
Martin joins as Territory Field Sales Executive, and brings 11 years of experience with him in sales in the South West. He was formerly in sales management at retailer CarphoneWarehouse, running stores in locations such as Exeter and Barnstaple.
He said: “My experience in building and managing customer relationships will come to the fore in this role, since Trucksmith has the ability to tailor van conversions to any number of customer uses – from bread vans and delivery vehicles to showrooms and mobile libraries.
“I’ll be focusing on maintaining an unbeatable support network for our wide-ranging customers, including the Renault, Vauxhall and Fiat dealerships where our vehicles are available.”
The role at a commercial body builder like Trucksmith is particularly appropriate since Martin enjoys body building of a different kind – training as an amateur strongman in regional competitions.
Daniel Trebble, Managing Director at Trucksmith, said: “This is an exciting period for Trucksmith, with several new product launches this year, and Martin’s skills will be hugely valuable. We are focused on service as a business and his ability to form strong relationships at the highest level will play a key part in our client strategy.”
Trucksmith was recently voted Van Converter of the Year 2017 by readers of What Van? Magazine, and launched its new Renault Trafic Target dropside at the Commercial Vehicle Show in April 2017.
