By Leila Steed16 July 2019
Snorkel has expanded its European, Middle East and Asia (EMEA) sales team with the appointment of Konstantin Kuvaldin to the role of Territory Manager for Eastern Europe.
Prior to his appointment with Snorkel, Kuvaldin held regional and senior sales positions with multiple leading construction equipment and automotive manufacturers and distributors, including Zeppelin Ukraine, Renault Trucks Ukraine, and John Deere Ukraine. Most recently held the position of Regional Manager CE Poland & Baltics for JC Bamford Excavators (JCB) Poland.
Speaking of his new role, Konstantin Kuvaldin, said, “I am really looking forward to my new role at Snorkel. This is a strong brand which is rapidly growing, and I see lots of opportunity within my territory to increase market share, through both the cultivation of direct sales relationships with the rental sector, but also through the development of a strong dealer network, ensuring the highest levels of customer service throughout the region.”
Based in Poland, Kuvaldin will be responsible for developing Snorkel’s independent distributor network in the Eastern Europe territory and for building the brand’s presence and identifying direct sales opportunities.
Matthew Elvin, Snorkel CEO, said, “We are excited to have Konstantin join our team. He is dynamic, energetic and results-driven, and he brings highly relevant business-to-business sales experience to Snorkel. I am confident in his ability to combine a hands-on approach with structured business development strategies which will enable him to deliver exceptional results from this territory.”
This latest appointment follows that of Andrew Fishburn to position of Vice President of Strategic Accounts EMEA. The manufacturer said it plans to add another new territory manager role for France, Benelux and Africa, later this year.
