Senior appointment at Finning UK
FINNING UK have announced the appointment of Gary Agnew as director of construction equipment. He previously held the position of general sales manager for construction equipment, and now succeeds Neil Dickinson who was recently appointed managing director of Finning UK.
Mr Agnew’s promotion reflects his wide ranging dealership experience gained over a 15-year career spanning various sales, operational and general management roles, since originally joining H Leverton Ltd in 1995 on a graduate trainee programme.
Commenting on his recent appointment, Mr Agnew said: ‘It really is an exciting time to be taking up the new position and I am very proud to be leading the organization into the next important phase of its development. We have weathered the economic storm very well over the last 24 months; holding firm and retaining our network of 25 branches and over 450 highly skilled engineers, which are two critical components of our service strategy.
‘Our customers are looking for Finning to play a much broader role in supporting their operations across a diverse range of industries. My role will be to make sure that we have the very best people, safety standards and support capability in place to be able to respond positive to form a key part of their future success.’
