NEW SALES MANAGER AT STOCKS AG
Stocks Ag has appointed David Blackwood to head up the sales team at Stocks Ag, both in the UK and across the globe.
David joins Stocks with almost 30 years of experience in the agricultural machinery industry. A native of Northern Ireland, David grew up on a dairy farm and started out as a graduate engineer at the old Massey Ferguson tractor factory in Coventry.
Following AGCO’s acquisition, David worked for the multinational in many areas of the agricultural business – from sales, support, after-market as well as in distribution development across the world, spending five years at the Massey Ferguson Asia Pacific office in Singapore and six years in AGCO’s regional office in Melbourne Australia. Most recently David worked for the Fella and former Lely Welger factories as export business development manager.
“David brings a wealth of experience to Stocks’, said James Woolway, Managing Director ‘I am confident he will lead the sales team here in the UK, as well as develop our export business - we are lucky to have him.”
Commenting, David said “I have come across Stocks Ag products in many parts of the world, from dual wheels in peat applications in Indonesia, to seeders in the far north of Japan, making this an irresistible opportunity. Stocks is well positioned to build on an excellent reputation and I am excited to be part of the new growth phase both in the UK and the rest of the world.”
David and the Stocks Ag team will be at SIMA from 6th – 10th November. You’ll find him on the Stocks Ag stand in Hall 6, stand 6HO57.
