Kubota UK has appointed Oliver Beekes as Tractor Business Unit (TBU) dealer manager for agricultural and groundcare machinery ranges for the south and south west of England.
Mr Beekes is passionate about farming and machinery. He graduated from Harper Adams University with a degree in agricultural machinery and spent time with another manufacturer, bringing with him experience as a product specialist and territory manager.
“I’m looking forward to being challenged with continual dealer development and brand-building, to introduce Kubota to the wider farming community,” said Mr Beekes. “Kubota has a tremendous presence in ground care and construction – and I’d like to see that replicated in agriculture, and be part of that success story.”
“There is growing demand from the industry for Kubota tractors and machinery, and aspiration from the company to be a major player in these markets – it’s a great time to be on this journey,” he said.
Commenting on the appointment, agricultural and ground care sales manager Tim Yates said: “This is a great opportunity to continue building on the growth already achieved in both agricultural and ground care markets across the south of England.”
“With the recent expansion of our dealer network and many new products coming to market to enhance a very modern equipment portfolio, we’re in a great position to deliver growth for Kubota and our partners.”
