New appointment sparks sales boost in Germany header image

McConnel’s Dutch distribution partner JJ Dabekausen has signed sales ace Martin Kilpper to promote the brand in South West Germany.

An experienced arable and dairy farmer, Martin, 48, brings a wealth of agricultural and sales expertise to his new role.

Dabekausen general manager Jeroen Huijsmans said the appointment was part of a major sales push in the key German market, and would be backed by the creation of a second sales position in Bavaria later in the year.

Jeroen said: “Martin is an excellent signing for Dabekausen because not only does he bring a huge amount of practical experience to this important new role, he also boasts a proven track record for selling equipment to both farmers and local authorities.

“At Dabekausen we are committed to customer service - from providing accurate and detailed pre-sales advice – to delivering outstanding after-sales support, and we feel Martin’s knowledge and pedigree makes him a perfect addition to our team.”

Martin will be based in the agricultural region around Stuttgart and will start his new role on 1 March 2015
