Harry Tinson has been appointed as Sales Director for Parts and Services at leading bus manufacturer, Wrightbus.
Harry joins the Ballymena-based firm following almost a decade of working within the heavy equipment manufacturing industry.
He brings with him a wealth of experience, having spent the past three years leading the parts and service team at JCB to achieve record sales. Harry has also recently received his Master of Business Administration (MBA) from the University of Warwick.
Harry said: “I am thrilled to be joining the business at a key period where I can bring my experience of leading global aftermarket sales teams, providing me with an excellent opportunity to build on an already impressive growth.
“I feel honoured to have been given the opportunity to lead a strong team of people within a key part of the business.”
Harry joins at an exciting time for Wrightbus as last month, the firm announced that it had signed a deal to build an initial 120 buses for the Republic of Ireland’s National Transport Authority (NTA). The 120 buses are part of a framework agreement which provides for the procurement of up to 800 zero-emission battery-electric buses over a period of five years.
While back in May, Wrightbus announced major deals with Australia’s leading bus body manufacturer Volgren and German Bus operator Regionalverkehr Köln GmbH (RVK).
Ian Gillott, Managing Director, Parts and Services, said: “Harry is an absolutely superb appointment. I am absolutely delighted that he has joined the Wrightbus team, especially during such an exciting period of growth for us.
“I know that Harry will be key in our continued drive to transform customer service and experience, and deliver beyond all expectations.”
