Isuzu Australia Limited has appointed Steven Goulding as its new National Fleet Sales Manager, replacing Les Spaltman who moved to the role of National Sales Manager last year.
Goulding said he’s been able to hit the ground running, largely due to the efforts of his predecessor.
“We’ve kicked off 2017 superbly and we’re certainly ahead of where we were at the same time last year,” Goulding said.
“Its early stages but we’re tracking extremely well. We have specific marketing campaigns in train focusing on Isuzu’s Ready to Work units in 2017, so it’s exciting times ahead."
Goulding joined IAL earlier this year, bringing over 20 years’ management experience in the automotive and capital equipment hire industries, most recently as General Manager of Jet Vac Equipment.
Goulding said his experience as a procurer of capital equipment had given him an insight into how Isuzu can build stronger relationships within the marketplace.
“Having been on the other side of the fence, I’ve had experience with truck manufacturers and truck dealers coming to me, looking to sell,” he said.
“Right across the Isuzu team, whether it be at head office or throughout the dealer network, we’re establishing a clear focus on how we service and build our customer relationships. I see personal contact and strengthening relationships as top priorities for myself.”
IAL Director and Chief Operating Officer, Phil Taylor, welcomed Steven to Isuzu.
“We’re extremely pleased to have someone of Steven’s experience and pedigree on board for what promises to be a very busy 2017,” Taylor said.
“Steven has a unique skill-set that we’ve actively sought and through the work of his predecessor, Les Spaltman, the ground has been prepared for what we hope will be a long and industrious relationship in this customer facing role.”
