German trailer OEM Schmitz Cargobull has appointed Alan Hunt as Managing Director for its UK and Ireland operations, based in the firm's headquarters in Warrington, England.
In his new role, Hunt will focus on maintaining and growing Schmitz Cargobull’s substantial presence in the UK and Irish markets and brings considerable engineering expertise from his previous positions.
Hunt joins Schmitz Cargobull after 16 years with Caterpillar dealer, Finning CAT, where he held a variety of roles, including Defence and Government Manager, Business Unit Manager and more recently Head of Sales for Commercial Marine and Oil & Gas.
“I’ve been hugely impressed at what a positive and forward looking company Schmitz Cargobull is,” said Hunt.
“In the UK alone, this is a £75 million business and my goal is to grow our presence further as the European market leader – building on an already strong order intake.
“Key to our continued development will be staying true to the values which have steered the company to international success over the past 124 years.”
