Excel Automotive Group (EAG) has appointed Tom Waites to the role of internal sales following his move from Universal Components.
Tom began his working life as a warehouse operative after leaving school, where he combined work with education, as he enrolled in a motor vehicle panel beating and paint spraying course at college.
After impressing in a part-time role over two years, Tom was offered a full-time contract at Universal, which he duly accepted. Tom continued his progression with notable style, as his maturity and skillset earned him the position of assistant supervisor just 12 months later.
Fast forward another year, Tom’s product knowledge and MAM Autopart software capability earned him the position of internal sales at Universal Components. It was his previous experience and three years in the current role that impressed EAG bosses, all of whom were keen to bring him on-board, and on the 4th November, they got their wish, as Tom began a new chapter.
Tom said: “There is a lot of work to do behind the scenes; however, early impressions suggest the people and products behind the brand can deliver.
“I am keen to develop into a stronger sales person, and with the change from commercial vehicle to passenger car, there is ample room for me to broaden my knowledge. I am delighted to be here, and I am looking forward to the new challenges and meeting a wide variety of customers.”
