Scania (Great Britain) Limited has appointed Richard Birt to the position of Bus and Coach Account Manager – South West. Richard, who has a background in sales and aftersales within Scania’s South West region, succeeds Richard Sear, who has retired.
He commented, ‘This is a very exciting time to be joining Scania’s Bus and Coach team, which is enjoying an extremely buoyant period with its market share increasing year-on-year and new products on the way. I am moving from within the Scania UK business and now look forward to working with our passenger carrying vehicle customers and helping to further develop our presence within this important market place.’
‘I will be looking to offer customers a complete vehicle package with the nationwide back up from the UK’s 89 dealers. This, coupled with the proven quality, performance and kerb appeal of the vehicles themselves, adds up to up to an excellent package in my opinion.’
Bus, Coach and Engine Sales Director for Scania (Great Britain) Limited, Tony Tomsett, added, ‘We are delighted to welcome Richard into the team. His wealth of experience within our organisation will serve him well, and we wish him every success in his new role. I would also like to publicly thank Richard Sear, who spent more than 20 years with Scania. During his time with the bus and coach team he contributed greatly to our development in the South West. On behalf of the whole team would like to wish him a long and happy retirement.’
