MVIS takes on exciting new sales appointment

With all the doom and gloom in the world at the moment, it’s a pleasure – and indeed a privilege – to be able to focus on whatever positive news we can. In this sense, it seems only fitting that we celebrate an important new appointment to the MVIS team, with Ed Faulkner joining us as Sales Manager, working under our Sales Director, Graeme Lee

Ed’s appointment is especially exciting for us, as not only does it expand our growing team, but it also demonstrates a marked milestone of expansion for us. Ed’s role will comprise of breaching new markets with our products, which is especially important during the COVID-19 pandemic as we begin to see more applications for our technology to help deal with the spread of the virus.

Ed’s role will also focus on bringing new trade into the business in familiar areas to us, such as in traffic management, with local authorities and the events sectors. With a background in technical sales, mainly construction and the hire industry, Ed is keen to apply this knowledge and secure new business for the company. Ed very much fits in with the MVIS ethos – with a focus on training and added value, he brings a focus on personal development that ensures he will grow as the company does.

Ed brings with him years of business development and technical sales management experience, making him the ideal candidate for the job set out before him. With a proven track record in sales, Ed was selected to take on this role against a plethora of highly skilled and highly appropriate candidates. After an incredibly difficult recruitment process, Ed was chosen as the best applicant for the role with all our criteria considered.

Out of work, Ed is a passionate hockey player, playing for the same club since he was only 10 years old. Now the captain of the masters team, they reached the UK masters final at the Olympic hockey park in 2019 and came in close second. Ed also plays for the Welsh masters team as well.

Anne Ashman, Commercial and Operations Director comments, ‘The level of applicants for this role made this an incredibly difficult recruitment process that we were very lucky to take part in. Even more lucky for us, Ed was a candidate that stood above the others in the criteria we were looking for.’

Anne adds, ‘We are very pleased to welcome Ed to the team. Our recruitment process necessitates a focus not only on skills, but also attitude and culture. We believe that Ed will fit in with the MVIS and Bartco UK way of thinking. We look forward to working with him and seeing what we can all achieve together.’
