Thwaites appoints new export account manager

Julie Day

DUMPER specialist Thwaites has appointed Julie Day (Echalier) to the role of export account manager.

She will be responsible for the commercial and transactional relationship with Thwaites authorised distributors in France, Spain, Luxembourg, Belgium and Germany.

Dave Webster will continue to manage his accounts as well as now being responsible for Switzerland, Austria, Australia, New Zealand and Asia.

Andy Sabin, Thwaites general sales manager, said, “We are delighted to welcome Julie to Thwaites, this appointment will enable further product penetration and growth in these key territories, at this important time. Julie brings a wealth of experience and talent to the role, as well as the appointment being the perfect fit for all. I look forward to doing all I can to support Julie achieve all she can.”

Julie, who Thwaites described as having a strong sales and marketing, business management and production background, added, “I have long admired Thwaites, their culture and philosophy always seemed aligned to that of my own. Having worked with some great businesses thus far in my career, in similar roles, in similar regions, this opportunity was just too good to turn down.

“I am really looking forward to meeting my new customers and reacquainting myself with some established contacts, furthering the Thwaites brand in both existing and new territories. With new products on the horizon this is an exciting time to join Thwaites, I can’t wait to get started.”
