Stuart Browne has been promoted to the role of operations director - sales and service at Hoppecke Industrial Batteries.
Browne, who has been with the company for three years, will head up the operations side of the business with a remit covering sales, warehousing, service and rental. This new role has been created specifically to bring sales and service closer together and to ensure that service support meets customer needs, both now and in the future.
"This move is about breaking down the internal silos and evolving our company culture so that we're able to offer innovative, flexible and rapid solutions to meet our customers' ever-changing needs," he explains. "While our sales people are the operational face of the business, it is our engineers who have the day-to-day relationship with our customers. So, working in conjunction with sales, our technical team can tap into innovative ideas that will help our customers overcome their logistics and materials handling problems."
