Trimax Mowing Systems has appointed Rikki Bown to support the company's dealers and customers located across the south of England, south Wales and the Channel Islands.
Taking over the role of southern area sales manager from Paul Stewart - who is now operations manager for the UK - Rikki is a qualified engineer who brings more than 12 years' experience gained within the turf and grounds maintenance industry.
He will work with and assist Trimax dealers with the promotion, sales and support of Trimax tractor-powered turf mowers among professional customers located in the southern half of the United Kingdom.
He is also readily available to help customers select the most appropriate Trimax mower for their requirements from an extensive range encompassing both flail and rotary-type machines.
"I am really pleased to be working for one of the most innovative and customer responsive companies in the turf industry," commented Rikki.
"Trimax mowers have a global reputation for their design and engineering qualities and, with the help of our dedicated dealer network, I intend bringing these qualities to the attention of the widest possible audience."
Welcoming Rikki's appointment, Trimax's managing director, Michael Sievwright, pointed out that the move further reinforces the firm's commitment to the European market.
"We are delighted that Rikki has joined the Trimax team responsible for the UK and Ireland," said Michael. "In recruiting staff with proven technical knowledge and sales expertise, we continue to demonstrate the importance placed by Trimax on delivering and maintaining the highest levels of support to our dealers, customers and end-users."
