New appointment at Bowman North America
Alistair Brixey appointed as executive vice-president of Bowman International’s North American operations
UK-based Bowman International, global innovators of performance-driven bearings, have appointed Alistair Brixey as executive vice-president of their North American operations.
The appointment comes following a period of intensive growth for Bowman across North America, during which the manufacturer has expanded its network of distributors in the region, as well as its portfolio of OEM and MRO clients covering virtually every sector of industry.
English born, Mr Brixey (pictured) brings to his new role more than four decades of bearing industry experience and a wealth of knowledge serving OEMs and large distributors both in the UK and America. He is also a committee member of the US Bearing Specialists Association.
Bowman International chairman Paul Hancock explained: ‘We have been growing our presence in North America for some time and have developed enough of a client base to warrant a more substantial offering in the region. Alistair is the first part of this transition and will use his technical and sales experience to bring continuity between the Bowman offering in America with what we offer in the UK.
‘We are confident that with Alistair at the helm, our American clients will be well looked after. We have further investment planned for the US which gives us confidence that our presence in the region will follow a steep upwards trajectory.’
Mr Brixey said: ‘Bowman bring to market genuine bearing innovation that solves very real issues faced by many critical sectors across North America in both plain and rolling element bearings. I am delighted to be joining such a dedicated team and look forward to bringing Bowman’s customer-centric approach to bearing design to the fore in the US.’
