TGW attracts top European talent
Automated warehouse solutions provider TGW has announced four senior appointments to help drive continued growth in its Northern European division.
Headquartered in Wels, Austria, TGW currently employs circa 2,000 people worldwide. In 2013, TGW brought its operations in Benelux and the Nordics together with the UK to form TGW Northern Europe (NE).
With customers including Asda, VF Corporation, PUMA and Arla Foods, TGW NE continues to experience exponential growth, which has generated circa 65 new appointments in the past year alone.
Most recently, Noel Blake joins TGW as an Account Director, having previously held a senior business development role. Noel has an extensive engineering background and will be working closely with TGW’s design team to ensure the company’s solutions are aligned to customer expectations.
Noel will be based at TGW’s Northern European headquarters in Market Harborough, Leicestershire, as will Steve Downes, TGW’s new Head of Solutions Design. Steve also brings with him over 10 years of engineering industry experience.
“During my career, TGW has evolved from being a supplier of MHE equipment to providing fully integrated solutions for its customers,” said Steve. “I’ve watched TGW’s UK team expand from only a handful of people to a 170 strong team in offices that are specifically designed with the needs of its employees in mind. I am looking forward to supporting TGW in its ambitious growth plans.”
In the Nordics, Joakim Waern has taken up the role of Head of Sales. Stockholm-based Joakim has been selling automated solutions for over fifteen years. In line with TGW’s goal to become one of the top three suppliers in the Nordic countries, Joakim is keen to get started.
Last but by no means least, Belgium-based Hans De Sutter will be heading up sales in Benelux. Hans brings with him significant industry knowledge and experience. Hans will be responsible for developing TGW’s business across the region.
“I have always considered TGW as one of the leaders in our business,” said Hans. “I am happy to be part of the team at this exciting time and hope to contribute to the growth of TGW NE in the coming years.”
