Leicester-based woodworking machinery supplier, TM Machinery Sales, has expended its sales team with the appointment of Gareth Dean.

Taking on the role of sales manager, Gareth will be responsible for new sales generation throughout the UK, whilst working closely with TM’s experienced sales and service division to maintain a continually high level of aftersales support. Nominated for ‘New Salesperson of the Year 2016’ in his previous woodworking machinery sales role, Gareth will be based primarily in Oldham, Manchester, whilst regularly visiting new and existing customers onsite.

Matt Pearce, director at TM Machinery Sales, says: “Our confidence in the future of our product portfolio and the sustained growth we have seen since the financial crisis, meant that it was essential for us to increase our capacity. By introducing Gareth at this stage, he will be able to get a sound understanding of the business and have an active role in developing our ongoing sales processes.”

Gareth adds: “I really enjoy selling and TM’s machinery range is a salesman’s dream. Striebig, Viet and AL-KO are well known brands and companies are enthusiastic to work with them. TM’s focus on delivering exceptional aftercare also attracted me to the company. Partnering great machinery brands with ongoing support and servicing makes this role the perfect fit. I can’t wait to get stuck in.”
