Hako Machines Ltd, the leading manufacturer of cleaning equipment, have made two key appointments to strengthen its sales team.
Appointed in a senior sales and marketing role in January Nevill Furber, joins Hako from Dowding & Plummer, the Birmingham-based manufacturer of floor cleaning machines where Nevill was in charge of worldwide sales activities. Nevill also has a background in senior-level sales and marketing roles in the FMCG sector.
At Hako Nevill will initially apply his experience and expertise to business development and marketing activities for the company's industrial key accounts.
“I am very excited to be working with a world renowned and respected brand, particularly at a time when new product development will enhance Hako's comprehensive range and support services, which will afford many new business opportunities for the future,” comments Nevill.
The recruitment of Nevill follows swiftly on from the appointment in December of Paul Sandiford as Key Accounts Manager – Retail. Paul joined Hako from the communications industry where he spent two years as Business-to-Business Manager for T-mobile. Prior to that Paul worked in a management role for Nilfisk Advance and Alto.
Paul comments: “This is an important role as the current development of Hako's product line is particularly relevant to the retail sector. I'm looking forward to introducing the sector to these exciting new solutions.”
Stuart Taylor, Managing Director, at Hako comments:
“This is a particularly exciting time for Hako Machines Ltd with a stream of innovative new products being launched into a market that, while consistently focused on cleaning efficiency, is also increasingly concerned with environmental issues. Together with our latest innovative solutions to meet these demands, the appointment of Nevill and Paul will help Hako develop new opportunities in all sectors.”
