Nisbets has appointed Robin White to the new role of MD for UK and Ireland. White makes the move from his previously-held position as UK sales director, accepting new leadership responsibilities for the region.
Part of a wider strategic development in Nisbets’ global structure, the appointment is aimed at aligning the UK and Ireland sales operations. This continues a more region-focused approach to the business, following the appointment of Conrad Hunneman as MD for Continental Europe.
White has an accomplished background in sales leadership, previously holding senior roles with Unipart, Ryder Ltd and Nationwide Platforms, prior to joining Nisbets in 2018.
He commented: “I am honoured to accept my new position, and confident in our new direction of providing better regional focus for our customers.
“Retaining my responsibilities held as UK sales director, my team and I will now be able to focus on putting our UK and Ireland customers at the heart of our service, work more collaboratively with suppliers in the region and uphold Nisbets’ reputation as a trusted market leader.”
Klaus Goeldenbot, Nisbets Group CEO said: “We congratulate Robin in his new role as MD for the UK and Ireland. His performance as UK sales director proved his value, vision and expertise in our business. Robin will play a key role in helping Nisbets to drive sustained profitable growth for the future in the face of new and challenging market conditions.
“Robin will play a fundamental role in building stronger and more beneficial partnerships for our customers and suppliers in the UK and Ireland, and create a clearer alignment for our sales operations across the region.”
