ADRIAN Mann has joined Kubota’s construction division as product manager.
The equipment manufacturer said he brings 30 years of experience to the role, having previously worked at Terex and Marton Dump Trucks.
Adrian worked as a field service engineer for a large part of his 17-year spell at Terex, before becoming product specialist at the firm in 2010. He was responsible for managing and delivering the brand’s product sales training material along with attending trade shows and conducting product demonstrations and prototype evaluations.
Adrian said, “Speaking to my colleagues at Kubota about the future of the brand and how they aim to progress as a company has given me a great feeling about taking on this new role. The way things are moving forward for Kubota within the construction sector is hugely positive and the company’s long-term plan is both really encouraging and exciting.”
His role at Kubota will include pricing and evaluating each product’s position within the brand’s portfolio, including new products, whilst also creating and maintaining product information documents and liaising with the marketing department to manage outward communications.
Dave Roberts, managing director of Kubota UK added, “Adrian will be an invaluable asset to Kubota UK as a whole, not just the construction division. His knowledge and experience in the sector will drive the Kubota brand forward, making his appointment pivotal as we progress into 2017 and beyond.”
