Heuver’s Timmer begins new role in German market ‘expert team’
At present, Heuver Tyrewholesale is forming a customer support ‘expert team’ for the German speaking markets, and Gert Timmer, who currently manages the company’s agricultural business unit, will take on responsibility for the Bavaria and Austria regions as part of this team. He joins four other experienced customer support professionals in the new German markets team, and will be present with his colleagues at November’s Agritechnica show.
“With Gert Timmer as head of customer support in Southern Germany and Austria we have a strong expert at our disposal,” commented Heuver Tyrewholesale director Bertus Heuver. “When we stated that this position was available, Gert contacted us. He had no qualms about talking on the role but our management had to consider the decision carefully, as Gert has served as our business unit manager in recent years. He led the unit with great success. On the other hand, he was the missing person in our desired expert team for the German speaking market, a team now made up of five aces. Gerd will live in Bavaria, directly in the region where he’ll be active. At the end of the day, we’re very happy about the step he’s taken. Customers will also benefit as he has an answer to every question.”
“It is a great challenge,” said Timmer. “I enjoy working in Germany and Austria. The mindset, hospitality and way of working appeal to me and I will do everything in order to be successful there. Furthermore, I can draw upon a fantastic array of products, including our entire range of top truck, trailer, agri and construction machinery products, including rims and accessories.
“I believe our business has a very good future,” Timmer added. “With Detlev Schwarznecker, Helmut Haak, Sebastiaan Vlierman und Coen Heerdink as colleagues we have a real team of experts for the German speaking market.”
