Daniel Tomberry has been appointed area sales manager for Reesink Turfcare in the Midlands.
Tomberry, who has relocated from Scotland to take up the post, has almost 15 years’ experience in sports turf management in various roles, including head groundsman at East Dorset Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club, and three years sales experience working with all Reesink brands in Glasgow and West Scotland. It is this mix of sales set against a practical background ‘in the field’ that he, and Reesink Turfcare equipment sales manager Alastair Rowell, say will benefit customers in the Midlands.
Tomberry commented: “My time in various greenkeeping positions and as a head groundsman has certainly enabled me to relate to customers in my sales role with Reesink over the last few years. It’s given me a practical understanding of what they want to achieve, and which products will best suit their needs.
“I’ve thoroughly enjoyed working with Reesink in Scotland and I feel fortunate that my experience and sales record affords me this new opportunity to work with Reesink customers in the Midlands. I’m excited about making a new home in the area and look forward to carrying on the good relationships the company has with existing customers and creating new ones with those who have not benefited from fantastic brands such as Toro before.”
Turfcare equipment sales manager Alastair Rowell said: “The Midlands is a key area for us, so it was imperative we got the right person in the role. The remit includes all turfcare customers from golf clubs and sports venues, to local authorities and contractors, which matches with Daniel’s experience to date. He not only understands sales, but also the pressures and requirements of all those working in the turfcare sector. I believe he is a strong replacement for our open sales area.”
