Tesab Engineering appoint new sales director
Lee Johns brings deep experience in distribution channels to global market growth for brand
TESAB Engineering have announced the appointment of Lee Johns as sales director with immediate effect. Based out of the UK, he joins the Tesab team with more than a decade of experience in the heavy equipment industry, most recently as general manager of JCB Financial Solutions.
Dedicating most of his time at JCB to developing dealer, distributor, and finance partner relationships, he has developed key insights through roles in sales, commercial, and financial solutions. Mr Johns (pictured) brings this experience to Tesab to accelerate their growth aspirations in the short, medium and long term.
‘Working previously for a global organization such as JCB allows me to quickly implement the structures and processes needed to move Tesab into a new era of growth,’ he said. ‘There are tremendous opportunities in the crushing and screening sectors for new distributors, partners, and customers and I can’t wait to get started on what will be an exciting journey.’
Mr Johns will lead the sales organization within the Tesab business and will work closely with the current distribution network as well as identifying and recruiting potential new dealers in his new role.
‘Lee’s experience within the heavy equipment industry will allow him to easily integrate into our existing dealer network while creating new relationships and distribution channels to keep pace with rising demand for our equipment worldwide,’ said Ben Frettsome, vice-president of Tesab – now part of the McCloskey business unit within the Metso Outotec organization.
‘We look forward to continuing and building on this momentum in a meaningful way to contribute to the business success of our partners and customers.’
