New Appointment – Harvest Brand Manager

As the new year springs into action, we would like to take the time to introduce you to our new Harvest Brand Manager for 2022. With a wealth of experience in agricultural sales for both dealer and manufacturer, we welcome Chris Smith to P&B.

Managing Director, Graham Main, informs us of the continuity within the Harvest Brand Manager role:

‘Many of you may already know but I write with the sad news that Andrew Whiteley left us at Christmas to pursue a very different career.

Andrew has brought us great success reinvigorating the combine business within P&B particularly with the launch of the IDEAL and he will be sorely missed.

Given the importance of harvesting within P&B I am very pleased to announce we have appointed Chris Smith as our new Harvest Brand Manager to ensure seamless continuity for existing and potential new customers.

I won’t spoil Chris’ introduction profile on himself but he does come with great credibility for the role and I am excited to welcome Chris to the P&B team.’

 

Chris Smith, of Wilberfoss, holds 8 years dealership & 2 years manufacturer sales experience after climbing the ranks from Apprentice Technician, to Sales Support, to Area Sales then Massey Ferguson Combine Sales - UK North and ultimately Peacock & Binnington Harvest Brand Manager.

Speaking with Chris he told us: I’m glad that I have the experience of working in and around dealerships as well as working for the manufacturer, I am looking forward to putting my skills and experience to use at P&B. Meeting customers and getting to know staff is also something that I am looking forward to as I find my feet in the role...

'...Andrew has been really helpful with the pass-over. Right now, I am dealing with enquiries and arranging to get out and speak to the Area Sales Managers so that we can work together moving forward. Everyone at P&B that I have spoken to so far have been really helpful, it helps that I know a lot of the team from my Previous role at MF.

I can’t wait to establish myself in the role and make 2022 a good first year at Peacock & Binnington.’

We wish Chris every success with his career here at P&B. If you wish to contact Chris you can find his details below:
