TPA, part of the Vp group and supplier of temporary road ways and ground protection, has appointed Simon O’Regan as UK sales manager.
O’Regan will be responsible for all three parts of the business – portable roadways, pontoons and rapid rail access solutions. He will be based at TPA’s headquarters in Worksop, Nottinghamshire.
O’Regan joins TPA from automotive parts distributor Trupart, where he has been sales manager since 2017. Prior to that he was head of sales at Eve Trakway, part of A-Plant which became Live Trackway after Eve and Lion Trackhire were merged.
He began his career in 1999 at BT as sales advisor, promoted to sales manager two years later, making him the company’s youngest ever sales manager. In 2009 he was promoted to regional performance manager. In 2011 he joined recruitment company Edwards & Pearce as a recruitment consultant, before moving to My Job Group as senior account manager. In 2013 he joined Eve Trakway as customer development manager, and was promoted to head of sales three years later.
O’Regan said: “After a short break from the equipment rental sector, I am delighted to return and to make that return with TPA. This is an exciting time for the temporary access solutions sector and for TPA particularly.”
