New BDM To Deliver Banner Power In South West & Ireland

Date: Wednesday 19 April 2023

Helping to drive forward its already prominent position within the automotive aftermarket across the South West and Ireland, Banner – leading European original equipment manufacturer of batteries and battery accessories - has appointed Matthew Evans as Business Development Manager.

Reporting directly to Country Manager, Lee Quinney, Matt will be responsible for targeting Banner’s diverse and growing customer base of motor factors, garages, independent distributors and other specialist automotive parts outlets. Well versed in technical product training, Matt’s role will also focus heavily on delivering Banner’s bespoke customer training courses relating to all things batteries to motor factors, workshops and garages.

Joining Banner from Draper Tools where Matt had a proven track record in delivering outstanding automotive product sales results on a nationwide basis, Matt has nine years experience within the automotive sector, having also enjoyed a 4 ½ year spell with tool and garage equipment specialists, G.M.F. In his role as Banner’s new BDM for the South West and Ireland, Matt also intends to call upon his customer service experience having previously worked within the leisure sector.

Commenting on his new role, an enthusiastic Matt said:

“Being able to develop my career with another family run business is very exciting, and to get the chance to do so with Banner being such a prominent force from an original equipment supplier perspective - really is the icing on the cake! In order to continue to develop Banner’s market penetration across the South West and Ireland, I shall be looking to focus on four key principles – promoting O/E product quality aligned to price competitiveness, delivering outstanding levels of customer service, and developing long-standing and successful customer relationships.”

Reflecting on Matt’s appointment, Lee Quinney said:

“The whole team at Banner is delighted to welcome Matt onboard. He has a proven track record in sales and customer service and we are confident that this will prove instrumental in strengthening Banner’s position in two important strategic territories. Supplying a first class service to our customer base remains one of our main priorities, together with promoting Banner’s original equipment pedigree, and Matt will help spearhead this moving forwards.”
