Mercedes-Benz Trucks UK has appointed Heiko Selzam as the new national sales director.
Selzam (pictured) previously worked for three years as director of sales and marketing for commercial vehicles at Mercedes-Benz Luxembourg. Prior to that, he was the sales and marketing director for Daimler commercial vehicles in the Middle East.
Reporting to managing director Mike Belk, his new responsibilities include development of truck sales. While predominantly based in Milton Keynes, Selzam will be required to travel the country to visit customers and dealers.
He said: “I know things will be different from Luxembourg, but I am looking forward to working with a great team and settling in at Milton Keynes. My priority is to focus on our customers – we are not just selling trucks – we are providing services and solutions to their transportation needs.”
Belk said: “His knowledge and experience will prove invaluable as we look to increase our portion of the market and share our proposition with a wider audience. I look forward to him providing a helping hand for our dealer network and growing our direct sales.”
