The UK division of Danish international rental company BMS has appointed Eddie George technical sales manager in order to help promote the company’s growing fleet of larger truck mounted work platforms.
While based in Glasgow, Scotland George will cover the whole of the UK and Ireland, working with BMS Lifting’s UK sales director Tom Wilson, supporting existing customers and building the network of partners.
He joins the company following a short spell as sales manager for One Stop Access where he has been since February, following more than seven years with Height For Hire where he was truck mounted lift supervisor, having joined the company in 2010 as an operator.
He began his career in 2004 as a sales consultant with Kwik Fit Insurance, making a radical change two years later when he joined ES Access as a truck mounted platform operator at its Scottish depot which traded as Brogan Access Ltd. His time with ES came to an end as the company moved towards administration, which finally came in 2010.
Tom Wilson of BMS said: "It is great to welcome Eddie to our team especially with his large truck mount knowledge and experience. With the growth plans BMS have for 2018/2019 Eddie will play a key role in developing the business."
George added: "With the high standard of equipment BMS provides and my background in large truck mounted platform rental this job is a perfect fit and I am really looking forward to getting started"
