TMD Friction bolsters sales team with new area sales managers

Date: Friday 27 March 2020

Global OE and aftermarket brakes manufacturer, TMD Friction, has expanded its sales team with the appointment of two new area sales managers.

Del Smith, who will be covering the Midlands, and Alistair Smith, who will cover the South West, have joined TMD Friction to visit distributors in their areas to encourage sales and retain customer satisfaction.

The new team members have already undergone rigorous training on all of TMD Friction’s brands. Having previously worked at Alliance Automotive, Sandicliffe Motor Group and Andrew Page, Del has factoring experience in both the passenger car and commercial vehicle sectors. Alistair has worked closely with buying groups and motor factors during his time at FPS, as well as also working at Alliance Automotive. The two will work simultaneously to visit customers, negotiate sales and build a solid customer base in their dedicated areas.

Nick Hayes, UK sales manager at TMD Friction, said:

“Expanding our sales team plays a key part in our 2020 plans to enhance and grow our distribution network further. With 42 years combined experience in the automotive industry, Del and Alistair make welcome additions to the sales managers and working with the rest of the team, we’re sure the new appointments will assist in bolstering the technical department and sales offerings.”
