Company announces the appointment of mobile plant experts Mark Bowden and David Wileman
BELL Equipment have added two new plant experts to their UK sales team following significant growth in market activity over the past 12 months.
Mark Bowden has been brought in as regional sales manager for the north-east of England, and David Wileman has been appointed to handle sales of all used equipment.
Mr Bowden has worked within the plant industry for more than 30 years, starting out as an apprentice plant fitter and holding a number of high-profile sales and management roles, including national sales manager for crane hirer AGD Equipment Ltd and operations director for specialist recruitment firm MPS Crane Operators.
Mr Wileman is an experienced sales manager in both new and used equipment, having worked for companies such as Terex and Komatsu as well as having held senior management roles within the forestry equipment supply sector.
Commenting on his new appointment, Mr Wileman (pictured) said: ‘I’m delighted to have the opportunity to work for Bell. We’ve got a great product range and it’s a hugely exciting time to be part of such a dedicated team.
‘The emphasis Bell place on used equipment is also hugely rewarding, reflecting the company’s commitment to supporting customers throughout the whole life cycle of its machines.’
Mark Bowden added: ‘Bell are renowned for their advanced technology, their robust machines and their outstanding after-sales support, which is an enormous benefit when taking on a new sales role. To join such a well-respected company at a time when the plant sector appears to be emerging from two or three years of recession is incredibly exciting.’
Neville Paynter, managing director of Bell UK, said: ‘Mark and David have almost 60 years of industry knowledge and experience between them, which is an invaluable resource both for our sales team and our customers. I wish them both the very best.’
