Previously working in key account management with Goodyear Dunlop for four years, Maddocks has a wealth of experience in sales management and has worked directly with all aspects of the UK market, from independent retailers to national retailers and distributors.
Before joining the tyre industry, he spent five years in the vehicle rental segment of the automotive industry and is able to bring both extensive experience and sector knowledge to his new role.
“I can’t wait to start working with Davanti, an ambitious and exciting brand who understand the demands of the market and the UK consumer. I am committed to providing an excellent service to our distribution partners and I’m looking forward to further developing the range coverage and product line by working closely with our manufacturer” says Maddocks.
Peter Cross, Davanti general manager said; “We are delighted to be working with Sean, whose experience will be invaluable in pushing forward the Davanti brand in the UK and beyond.”
