Briggs Equipment has further strengthened its successful senior management team with the appointment of Bill Goodwin as sales director.
Bill has joined one of the UK's fastest growing forklift supply and service companies as it consolidates its position as one of the largest businesses of its type in the UK and is the prime supplier of both Hyster and Yale Europe Materials Handling Equipment.
A former director at Jungheinrich, where he was responsible for operations and customer service, the 49-year-old said he is looking forward to a fresh challenge, helping to drive growth at a company that shares his own innovative approach to business.
"In my previous roles I've enjoyed success by employing sales techniques that are based on empowering staff to make informed decisions, and to take responsibility for those decisions," he explained.
"Briggs believes in building close relationships with customers to develop innovative tailored solutions, underpinned by excellent service. These principles are the pillars of my own business values.
On Bill's appointment, Briggs ceo Richard Close said: "We are delighted to welcome Bill to the team at an exciting time for the company.
"Following our recent acquisition of Barloworld, his extensive experience and expertise will help us strengthen our position as a market leader while building the foundations for future growth," he added
