Powerscreen, the Northern Ireland-based provider of mobile crushing, screening and conveying equipment, has announced that Felipe Ortega has been appointed as regional sales manager covering South America.
Felipe is a civil and industrial engineer experienced in developing marketing strategies for crushing and screening equipment in the construction industry.
He has spent the past 10 years working in roles of increasing responsibility with long standing Powerscreen dealer Komatsu Chile.
After initially specialising in supporting customers’ crushing and screening processes, he migrated to the commercial area of Komatsu Chile as product manager - Powerscreen, developing and implementing sales strategies for Komatsu’s commercial departments.
Based in Santiago, Chile, Felipe will now support growth plans for all Powerscreen dealers across South America by sharing best practices and training.
“Many within the Powerscreen team have already worked closely with Felipe during his 10 years as a dealer and his passion for the Powerscreen brand and equipment has always been very clear,” said international sales manager Joe Cassidy.
“This is an important strategic appointment for Powerscreen as we know the South American area has huge growth potential and having a strong, driving presence within the region can only accelerate the growth which has already begun.”
