Mark Peacock has been named ignition specialist NGK’s Salesman of the Year for the second successive year.
The original equipment (OE) supplier of spark plugs, glow plugs, NTK Lambda and other engine management sensors, presented him with the 2019 award at its recent end of year conference held in Palma, Majorca.
Mark (49) said: “I am really pleased to have received the award for a second time. It was an ambition of mine to win it when I first joined the company in 2011 and to win it again is fantastic.”
He took the honour in a closely run race from colleagues Paul Gair and John Catterson, who came second and third respectively.
Mark added: “We are a close-knit team at NGK, and I would have been just as pleased if Paul had won the award. I think I can attribute the award to introducing our new products, especially MAP and MAF sensors, to my customers while also achieving good spark plug sales.”
Mark Hallam, Marketing Manager, NGK Spark Plugs (UK) Ltd, said: “It is a great achievement by Mark to once again be named Salesman of the Year. He thoroughly deserved retaining the award for his efforts over the past 12 months.
“NGK never stands still, and Mark is part of a very experienced and conscientious sales team who have been instrumental to the successful launch of a number of new products we have introduced to our customers over recent months.”
Prior to joining NGK, the two-time winner, whose sales area covers the English counties of Shropshire, Worcestershire, Herefordshire, Gloucestershire and Oxfordshire, plus south Wales, worked as a Sales Representative for automotive distributor FPS in Nottingham and Sheffield.
Mark – who is married to Gayle and has two sons, Sam (20) and Josh (15) – is a keen sports fan who supports Birmingham City FC and is a music enthusiast who regularly attends concerts.
