New UK sales representative at Euro Auctions
Tim Dilworth takes on new heavy machinery challenge after 20 years with Marubeni-Komatsu
TIM Dilworth has joined the Euro Auctions team, expanding the number of sales representatives in the UK and bringing with him a lifetime of experience in the heavy machinery market.
Having started his working life as a plant mechanic with Sir Alfred McAlpine, Mr Dilworth later followed in his father’s footsteps and joined Marubeni-Komatsu. When his father retired, he took over his Dad’s sales area and for the last 10 years has been the top sales generator in the business.
After 20 years in the job and looking for a new challenge, Mr Dilworth contacted Euro Auctions seeking a position, and on the strength of his track-record, joined the team just before the COVID-19 lockdown.
‘I had known of Euro Auctions for many years, had visited several of their auctions, and was massively impressed by the work ethic and the ‘can do’ attitude of the team and wanted to be part of it,’ said Mr Dilworth.
Even though COVID-19 has put construction projects on hold, Euro Auctions are still hosting live online auctions, behind closed doors, as consignors look to liquidate stock and bring much-needed funds into their businesses.
Mr Dilworth says he is looking forward to creating new partnerships with consignors and introducing them to the services that Euro Auctions offer, not just in the UK, but on a global level.
‘Whilst I am working from home, due to lockdown, I really have hit the deck running, as I have a contact list of operators I would normally have been selling to, but now I am re-connecting on the premise that I can help them dispose of stock,’ he said.
‘With a full schedule of upcoming, live online auctions, I will be kept very busy, and am relishing the challenge.’
