Hylec-APL is appointing Mark Severn to the role of Director of Sales. The appointment comes at a time when Hylec-APL is continuing to expand its product range and grow its business in new markets. Mark is experienced within the electrical components market and has a proven track record in a sales environment.
Mark began his sales career working for a manufacturer of hose products for automotive manufacturers such as Renault and Rover. Following a successful stint as a Senior Buyer for RS Components, he returned to sales in 2000 and has spent the last 14 years working within a management role for a UK manufacturer of electrical I/O components. During this time he has developed a reputation for growing sales by building long-lasting relationships; both with key accounts and national distributors.
Within his new role, Mark will be responsible for managing the Hylec-APL sales team whilst working with key accounts and the national distributors. As a priority he will be working with existing Hylec-APL customers to learn how the product range can continue to develop to incorporate their specific needs.
Paul Cinnamon, Non-Executive Chairman of Hylec-APL, comments: “Mark’s experience of first-hand sales and managing a national sales team, coupled with his time working for a leading national distributor, places him in the perfect position to lead Hylec-APL’s sales activity during our period of growth.
“We are working hard to expand our product range with a focus on development of our own product design and manufacturing facilities while continuing to work with existing key partners. So we need someone who is able to build relationships across a multitude of industries while also motivating the sales team to offer value added services to our customers, such as specification advice and aftersales support.”
As a specialist manufacturer and supplier of electrical components, Hylec-APL is able to offer its customers a broad range of high-quality products which are designed to simplify the job of the end-user. Its sales team is able to provide expert guidance during specification to maximise efficiency, reliability and speed of installation. With an ever growing range of enclosures, control stations, terminal blocks and weatherproof connectors & junction boxes, Hylec-APL is able to service almost any industry.
Mark Severn comments: “Joining a company like Hylec-APL offers many inherent and exciting challenges. Its product range is truly innovative, and it has such a broad range of clients, operating in many different industries, meaning it’s important that we are on the top of our game at all times in order to offer an expert service to everyone that we speak to.
“For me, the key to success lies in laying foundations for long-term relationships. So I’m looking forward to meeting all of our customers over the coming months and reaching out to new industries to learn how we can adapt our business to offer increased support.”
