Snorkel UK has appointed Scott McCall as business development manager and ‘net zero specialist’ tasked with introducing UK customers to Snorkel’s new lithium-ion powered equipment.
Reporting to Snorkel UK managing director Andrew Fishburn, he will also have day to day responsibility for developing sales in the north west region of the UK, while also handling national key accounts.
McCall began his powered access career in 1997 when he joined the marketing department of Nationwide Platforms, becoming marketing manager. In 2006 he moved to Gardner Denver as national sales manager for the UK when it still built vehicle mounted lifts. In 2008 he left for Altec where he helped lead its sales efforts in Russia, CIS and Baltic States. He later set up off road lifting equipment distribution consultant Utility Equipment Sales, offering Elliot boom trucks alongside Oil&Steel platforms in the same region. In 2012 he joined a new Oil&Steel distributor in the UK, HSG Systems before moving to online auction house Iron Planet as major accounts manager for cranes a few months later. Then in 2016 he resumed his work with Utility Equipment adding the component sales operation UE Components.
Andrew Fishburn said: “We are delighted to have Scott join our team. He is very well known and well respected in the wider equipment sector having had many years of experience in the heavy lifting, crane, aerial lift and off road vehicle markets, here in the UK, and also across Europe, Africa and the Middle East with a speciality in Russia and the CIS countries.”
“I am confident that Scott can both develop his regional territory in the north west of England, while also bringing his valuable real world sales and marketing expertise to our key account customers who are in the early stages of adopting zero emission and low emission equipment.”
McCall added: “I am really excited to be joining Snorkel UK and am looking forward to getting on the road and meeting many new and existing contacts in the north west, as well as starting to work with the key accounts. Snorkel’s range of lithium products are truly industry leading yet benefit from a simplicity of design that will be appreciated by hire companies and their customers. It’s also a great feeling to be promoting British built equipment and working with such a highly motivated and positive team.”
