Boughton Engineering has announced the appointment of Stuart Wheatley as its new Area Sales Manager – South. Based in the Home Counties, Stuart will take over a territory which stretches from East Anglia, across the southern half of the country and down to the south west.
Apart from his previous sales and business development experience in the sector, Stuart has worked also previously at the practical ‘hands-on’ end of the industry, operating vehicles, including on waste and recycling. On leaving school, he joined the family’s car, van and truck sales business before becoming an owner operator of his own transport business. He holds both Class 1 and 2 HGV licences and a driver CPC.
Stuart says, “I am really excited about joining Boughton – it’s like moving to a team in the Premier League. The Boughton product is right up there as a long established leader and is very widely respected across the industry. I am really looking forward to the opportunity to develop working relationships with a whole territory of new customers – as well as the ones I know already, selling a product in which it is very easy to believe – and a dream to operate”.
Boughton Group Sales & Marketing Director, Steve Price says, “We are delighted to welcome Stuart to the team, with his background at the sharp end of the business as well as his sales and business development experience … and he can play golf too!”
