Kubota UK has appointed Krissi Holt and Neil Scott to the roles of aftersales dealer managers for the agricultural, groundcare and construction portfolios.
The new roles follow internal promotions, as well as expansion at Kubota, and represent additional investment in the company’s aftersales.
Supporting the dealer network across the East and South East of England, Ms Holt joins the business with ten years of industry experience. She spent the last six years with Lister Wilder as a service manager, before progressing to the pre-delivery inspection centre as a key account manager.
“Having worked in a dealership I have a thorough understanding of the challenges that dealers face,” Ms Holt said. “And that past experience certainly helps in my role as an aftersales dealer manager, to support their businesses.”
“Being able to work directly for a manufacturer is the career progression I sought, and with Kubota, my new role opens up many more possibilities beyond working solely within the groundcare sector.”
Mr Scott will look after the Midlands, the North West and Wales, and has eleven years of experience working with two Cheshire-based dealerships.
“I was always interested in tractors and machinery, even at school,” he said. “And after I completed higher education at Reaseheath College, I saw opportunities to progress through the trade working with high-profile dealerships. When my Kubota aftersales dealer manager was promoted, I saw an opening to further develop my career by joining a manufacturer.”
Commenting on the new aftersales dealer manager roles, Kubota’s agricultural and groundcare sales manager Tim Yates said: “This is a great opportunity to further develop the support available for our dealers, as we continue to reach many more customers across the industries in which we operate.”
