Today we’re delighted to introduce our latest new starter, Used Vehicle Regional Sales Executive Ronnie Kelsall. Ronnie joins us from his previous role as sales executive from our aftermarket department at Thomas Hardie Commercials.
A long-time member of the Thomas Hardie family
During his time at Thomas Hardie Commercials, Ronnie was responsible for providing customers with ongoing maintenance contracts for their Volvo trucks. Prior to this, he worked as the parts supervisor here at our truck supersite in Middlewich, so he certainly knows a thing or two about Thomas Hardie!
We’re excited to welcome Ronnie to the team as he’s renowned for going the extra mile for customers. During his time as parts supervisor, he once drove all the way from Middlewich to Exeter, just to drop off a turbo for a customer in need.
What about the time Ronnie came to the rescue?!
Ronnie said “He couldn’t get the part from anywhere else in the country. With a broken turbo, he wasn’t going anyway fast – so I drive all the way down there to deliver it to him. Stranded customers? No problem!”
From his time in the army, Ronnie acquired his HGV licence, and after a stint driving trucks, he decided he wanted to work in the industry. Ronnie first came to us after being introduced to our very own Jonathon Bownes, who saw his work ethic and welcomed him on to the Used Vehicle Valeting Team.
We caught five minutes with Ronnie to find out what attracted him to his new role. He said “Since starting my career at Thomas Hardie, I’ve always wanted to move into sales. I love socialising and am goal-driven so this was the perfect opportunity for me – I couldn’t miss out on it. While I’m here I’m hoping to surpass all targets given to me. I’ve definitely got my eye on ‘Salesman of The Year’ for the near future!”
That certainly sounds like fighting talk – Jonty and the rest of the Sales Team better watch out!
Fighting talk for the rest of the Sales Team!
In his spare time, Ronnie enjoys keeping fit by going to the gym. He’s also a big football fan – that’s playing and watching football – and loves spending as much time as possible with his children.
So Ronnie, any parting words for this post? “Thanks for the welcome – I’m really looking forward to getting started. And if you – or anyone you know – wants to buy a used Volvo truck… Give me a call!”
