Hands-on experience behind XYZ’s  new sales appointment

Hands-on experience behind XYZ’s new sales appointment

Added to MTDCNC by XYZ Machine Tools on 28 June 2016

John Drage has been appointed to the role of Area Sales Manager for XYZ Machine Tools, with responsibility for an area covering East Anglia and into north London and Essex. John brings with him many years’ experience in a sales environment having worked in the cutting tool sector since 2007, working across a similar area that he will support for XYZ Machine Tools. Prior to that he worked as a toolmaker, where he first came into contact with XYZ machines and the ProtoTRAK control. The memory of using a ProtoTRAK controlled machine stuck with John, in particular its ease of use and speed of programming, and when the opportunity arose to reacquaint himself with the product by working for XYZ Machine Tools, he grabbed it.

“Having used the ProtoTRAK as an apprentice and beyond, I was always impressed by its simplicity in terms of ease of use. That, combined with my experience in sales, excited me when the opportunity arose to apply for this sales role at XYZ. ProtoTRAK was a revelation when I was using it and it continues to be successful because of the benefits that it brings, so I jumped at the chance to join XYZ. My personal enthusiasm for the products available from XYZ Machine Tools and, my ability and experience in being able to demonstrate the very real benefits of a system like ProtoTRAK will allow me to work well with customers. I hope to use my extensive knowledge of the region to add to the very healthy XYZ customer base,” says John.

John joins XYZ Machine Tools at an exciting time with new machines being added to the already extensive range, such as the large travelling column machines. “I am confident that John will quickly become an integral part of the XYZ story as his commitment to providing excellent customer service and value is fully in line with how we operate. His experience and enthusiasm for the ProtoTRAK system will also be a major positive as he develops the business in his area,” says Nigel Atherton, Managing Director, XYZ Machine Tools.
