Alexander Dennis Limited (ADL) has strengthened its retail sales team with two new appointments.
Lee Gibson, from Ballymoney, in Country Antrim, joins the team after a 10-year spell in key sales and business development roles at Mercedes-Benz Bus, Coach and Minibus, prior to which he also worked with the Dawson Group and Dixon Motor Group. His new role will see him lead ADL’s retail efforts in Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland.
Alongside him in the new team will be Lee Salt, from Tamworth, in Staffordshire, who joins ADL from Dawsonrentals Bus & Coach, where he was responsible for sales initiatives in the Midlands and Wales. As ADL’s Regional Sales Manager for Central England and Wales, he will be on familiar territory and is looking forward to supporting the company’s commercial and sales teams, both of which have twin roles in terms of covering bus and coach sectors.
Richard Matthews, ADL’s Retail Sales Director, commented: "Lee Gibson and Lee Salt have a wealth of experience in the industry and will bring added impetus to our recently restructured and reinvigorated UK sales team.
"Their appointments follow the recent promotion of Simon Wood to General Manager Coach Sales and Martin Dunleavy to General Manager Used Sales, alongside an experienced UK team including Charlie Miller (Scotland and North West England); Dave Sellars (East of England); Mark Taylor (South of England); Frank McGhee (Key Account Manager); Martin Brailey (Sales Director, London and the South) and Allan Kennedy (UK Business Development Director).
"This is a powerful line-up of senior sales executives knowledgeable in every aspect of the industry. It is a team with credentials second to none and which, I am confident, will continue to underpin ADL’s leadership in the home market."
