Tallis Amos Group (TAG) has confirmed the recruitment of Mark Smith as agricultural sales director for the east of the country. Mr Smith has previously spent 27 years working for John Deere, most recently as the strategic account manager for the UK and Ireland.
The announcement follows news that TAG will expand into Shropshire, following the decision by Rea Valley Tractors to resign the John Deere franchise. The company is due to open a new 40,000-square-foot depot near Telford in March.
Ben Tallis, TAG managing director, said: “We have plans to double our turnover to £120m within four years. This appointment illustrates the ambition of the company and our desire to recruit first-class people to help drive this journey.
“Simon and I have known Mark for over 20 years. His strong relationships, extensive knowledge of the Agricultural industry and exceptional product knowledge make him the ideal person to help TAG deliver its next stage of continued growth.”
Mr Smith said: “TAG has a phenomenal reputation and is at an exciting point in its expansion. I look forward to working with the team to help take the company from strength to strength”
