The Tallis Amos Group (TAG) has confirmed three new sales appointments for its new depot at Allscott, between Shrewsbury and Telford. It follows the company’s appointment as John Deere dealer for Shrewsbury and Newport, with the new premises set to open this month.
James Potter joins the company from Rea Valley Tractors (RVT) as the depot sales manager. Growing up in a farming family in Shropshire, Mr Potter attended Harper Adams and spent time at McConnel before joining RVT in 2007.
He brings 15 years of experience with the John Deere portfolio, with a passion for forage harvesters and precision agriculture technology.
Mr Potter said: “After 15 happy years at RVT, I’m looking forward to working with owners Ben Tallis and Simon Amos and the rest of the team. With over 40 years of experience running a John Deere dealership, like my family they have very deep roots in selling and supporting John Deere products.
“All the team at Tallis Amos have been very welcoming and I look forward to dealing with customers new and old from our new Allscott depot.”
Joining him will be Gareth Williams and Dan Mallard. Mr Williams has 25 years of experience with agricultural machinery, spending the last 15 years of his career at RVT, and will handle sales in south Shropshire, as well as take on the role of combine specialist for TAG.
Mr Mallard has spent the last six years working for Krone UK as a territory manager for central England and Wales. He will take on the role of forager and grassland sales specialist in Shropshire and Herefordshire.
