Eastern boosts Account Management team

We are delighted to announce the appointment of Tom Fowkes as Key Account Manager for Eastern.

Tom, who joins Eastern from Hoseflex where he was Operations Manager, is the latest recruit to join the company in just three months.

Recent appointments include Ross Roper as Customer Service Advisor, Rosie Brown as Customer Service Advisor, Alfie Maw as Junior Sales Representative, Jim Bland as Onsite Engineer and Wayne De’Ath as Head of Hygiene.

Tom will work alongside owner Matt Gissing to oversee the growth of Eastern’s accounts in its Industrial and Agricultural Supplies and OEM divisions.

Matt says: “The decision to hire Tom will enable us to keep up with unprecedented demand to our recent product and service innovations.”

“For example: we are assembling over 700 hydraulic hoses per day on site for a number of the biggest names in UK Machinery Manufacturing. Tom brings huge amounts of industry expertise.”

“Not only that, his dynamic approach and ability to build on our existing partnerships will ensure Eastern is well placed for growth.”

Tom says: “Matt is building a fantastic workplace culture, leading the way as a role model in terms of innovation and customer excellence. We’re all enjoying pulling together and getting stuck in!”
