David Gibson has been appointed by Impact Toyota to the role of area sales manager covering the Leicestershire region.
Reporting to regional sales manager Eddie Bourne, based at the firm's Nottingham headquarters, David will manage existing accounts and actively seek new business opportunities.
Impact Toyota is the UK's fastest growing distributor of Toyota forklift trucks. Its reputation has been built on its unique brand of personalised local customer service provided by professionals who understand the needs of their customers – from recommending the most practical materials handling solutions to maintaining the vehicles as efficiently and economically as possible.
Prior to joining Impact Toyota, David worked for over four years at Total Firestopping Systems as a fire protection engineer, which involved sales, site surveying and developing tailored solutions for a wide range of industrial customers.
On his appointment, David commented: “I'm thrilled to be part of Impact Toyota. It's a dynamic and successful business and I believe it has the potential to grow even further within the market sector. We have ambitious targets to fulfil, but I am up to the challenge and eager to raise awareness of Impact's complete proposition to customers throughout Leicestershire.”

His commitment to customer service reflects our own and I'm confident he will make a positive contribution toward our objectives in 2007. I'm happy to welcome him to the team.”
