Shaftec has announced some major changes to its commercial team structure, to better equip the business as it enters the next stage of its development.
Marc Wise has been promoted to the position of Sales Manager. In this role he will oversee and manage the UK territories as well as the growth and expansion of the European business. Darren Byng is now Key Account Manager UK & Ireland and Joe Toakley as well as assuming the role of Area Manager for the South, will also be responsible for the company’s marketing, PR and advertising. Both will report to Marc.
Marc Wise, who has a background in purchasing and hails from Kent near Brands Hatch, will celebrate six years with Shaftec in 2021. During this time his remit has grown from area to export manager and in his new role, will oversee both UK and export sales.
“Over the past two years export growth has doubled, with the brand proving especially popular across Europe,” Marc explains. “Currently exporting into more than 15 different countries, the plan is to expand this growth further and support this development with the appointment of an EU based Export Manager in the near future.”
“The aim of the new commercial team is to champion all the unique qualities that come with the Shaftec brand, evolving in line with the ever changing vehicle car parc especially in the key area of electric steering, to ensure we are the first choice with both the garage and the motor factor,” he says.
