Gregoire Besson, the innovative manufacturer of ploughs and tillage equipment, has appointed a new Area Sales Manager to cover its Western region of the U.K.
Mike Amos, who hails from Sheffield has an excellent working knowledge of both the region and the industry, having been brought up in the area. After leaving school Mike trained as an engineer, resulting in him being awarded the prestigious John Deere Recognition of Excellence Award in the late 1980’s. His career development took him through various roles in the agricultural industry, from performing in a sales and service capacity for two respected dealerships in the north of England, and more recently as a territory manager and after-sales with Lynx Engineering.
Mike, a family man with two children, is keen on building relationships, both with the dealer principals and sales staff he services, and the farmers that they work with. High levels of customer service are important to Mike and he said - "I am delighted to be part of the growing team at Gregoire Besson and I am looking forward to meeting customers both old and new. With Cereals 2016 not far away this will be an ideal opportunity to introduce myself to people. We have a unique range of machinery to offer, including that from our German sister company Rabe and our U.K. partner Sulky ".
Mike's ambition is to become a respected and trusted partner to dealers and farmers alike. His in-depth agricultural engineering knowledge combined with his calm and considered attitude to life will no doubt serve him well as he embraces his new sales and service role with this innovative manufacturer of quality agricultural machinery.
