Macclesfield, Cheshire, England: Campey Turf Care Systems has appointed well known industry figure Nick Brown as its new Export Sales Manager.
Brown has more than 20 years’ experience in golf and sports turf and, through his previous role at Ransomes Jacobsen, has extensive knowledge of international markets. His understanding of these areas doesn’t only come from work. Four generations of his family were born and worked in the Far East, and he has lived in Australia, Malaysia, Singapore and predominantly Indonesia across 25 years.
Brown said his decision to join Campey is centred on the company’s innovation and creativity as well as its core value of building and maintaining long-lasting customer relationships.
Brown said: “Campey is a highly regarded company in the turf industry here in the United Kingdom and across the world. They have earned that reputation by providing innovative, reliable and robust machinery that meets the needs of customers through an excellent distribution base.
“In my new role, I want to build on the consistent and well-known message that Campey is always willing to go the extra mile to help. I have always worked on the basis of ‘making a customer, not a sale,’ and that matches perfectly with the common goals and message the Campey team has.
“By listening to customers and what they need, we can continue to make machines that solve common issues while thinking one step ahead and finding more creative solutions to improve turf quality. I think by putting these aspects together we can grow the Campey brand into new territories and I’m looking forward to working with everyone in the team.”
Brown joins Campey during a challenging time for global travel and distribution.
“Nick comes with a lot of experience and will be a great asset to our company. We’re delighted to welcome him to Campey,” said Richard Campey, Chairman of Campey Turf Care Systems, a Full Business Member of the Asian Golf Industry Federation.
Campey added: “He joins us at a time of constant change in terms of global travel, in particular the restrictions we have to work with while still providing the best service to our customers. With support from our Director Lee Morgado, who is already well-known to our dealer network and end users from the Middle East to Australasia, we hope to continue to grow in these established and new markets.
“That will require a different approach in terms of connecting with our export markets, and I’ve got no doubt that Nick will take that challenge on with enthusiasm.”
Campey currently has 53 distributors across Europe, Asia, North and South America and the Middle East. The company’s wide range of product lines has allowed it to assist turf professionals across the world in improving turf standards through innovations in fraise mowing, aeration, spreading and seeding.
