Micheldever Appointments Signal Reorganised Wholesale Structure
Micheldever’s Wholesale division has appointed Jason Burgess and Mike Hawes as general sales manager (North) and general sales manager (South) respectively in a new wholesale structure recently announced by MTS wholesale director Alan Baldwin. The new appointees will directly report to the wholesale director.
Alan Baldwin explained: “In order to further enhance our sales effectiveness and customer support levels across the UK, we have simplified reporting channels and responsibilities into two new geographical business units, with all Northern field sales teams and sales offices reporting to Jason Burgess, and the Southern operations to Mike Hawes.
“We are indeed fortunate to have hugely experienced ‘Tyre Men’ like Jason and Mike, who have nearly 50 years of combined tyre industry experience between them and that experience, allied to their drive and enthusiasm make Jason and Mike the ideal Team to support our Wholesale customer base and sales teams going forward.”
According to the company, Jason Burgess took Kumho to its position as a mid-range leader in his role as Kumho brand manager, having enjoyed a successful period with Toyo prior to joining Micheldever three years ago from another UK wholesaler, where he managed a busy wholesale office.
Mike Hawes, who is described as a Micheldever veteran, is said to be experienced and respected throughout the industry having been with Michelin prior to joining Micheldever where he has run the Micheldever sales office successfully for several years.
