Team of experts a long-standing objective
Bertus Heuver, director Heuver Tyrewholesale: “We have established a team of experts for South-East Germany and Austria, and Gert Timmer is responsible for running it. When we announced our decision to fill this position, Gert immediately threw his hat into the ring. He made his wishes very clear, but the board first had to consider the bigger picture. On the one hand, Gert has excelled as manager of our agricultural department, where he played an important role in the department's success. On the other hand, he had the ideal profile for our team of experts for the German-speaking market, which now features five ‘big-hitters’. Gert will be living in Beieren; in the heart of his catchment area. We are very pleased with this decision because customers will benefit from his problem-solving abilities."
Quality and top service
“This is a huge challenge”, says Gert Timmer (48). “I like working in Germany and Austria. The mentality, work ethic and hospitality appeal to me and I intend to be successful in this undertaking. I will be able to offer an excellent range of products, which includes our entire range of top products for the agricultural, truck & trailer and earth-moving markets, as well as wheel rims and other accessories. My customers are very clear: they expect quality and top service, and expect you to deliver what you promise. And I can meet these conditions thanks to the support provided by our excellent sales department. Although I focus on companies that offer tyre-related services, I also visit manufacturers of machines and trucks. This wide-ranging assignment allows me to fully exploit my know-how. And I think our company has a very bright future! With Detlev Schwarznecker, Helmut Haak, Sebastiaan Vlierman and Coen Heerdink as colleagues, we now have a team of experts dedicated solely to the German-speaking market. I will also be attending the Agritechnica trade fair in Hannover, where I hope to interact with our customers.”
