Marangoni Retreading Systems has appointed Phil Robinson to the role of senior country manager for Ireland, the UK and United Arab Emirates.
Robinson will support Mike Carter, who is close to his retirement, during a gradual transition phase, the company confirmed.
The 40-year-old began his career in the automotive industry as a technician specialising in Mercedes-Benz and Bentley, before becoming a commercial vehicle and spare parts seller.
His journey in the tyre industry began in 2014 as Key Account Manager for Continental, and more recently, as Regional Manager within Itochu owned ETEL (Kwik Fit & Stapletons Tyre Wholesale).
“Phil’s professional experience in the tyres world and his knowledge of the sector will certainly help us develop our position in his geographical areas of competence,” said Matthias Leppert, Marangoni Group’s COO.
“I am sure that he will be able to make the most of the gradual turnover phase with Mike, to take advantage of the enormous experience of our colleague who’s about to retire after over 40 years of career in Marangoni.”
Robinson added: “I’m delighted to join Marangoni and very much look forward to having a positive impact on the business.
“As a market leader, the way we support our network and help develop Their business for the future is paramount to mutual success.”
