AFI, one of the UK's leading powered access specialists, has made two key promotions to it’s leadership team with immediate effect.
Ben Hammill is promoted to Infrastructure and Major Projects - Divisional Director and Oliver Warburton to Divisional Sales Director – Wilson and Unoperated North.
Ben Hammill joined AFI in 2007 and is a long-standing member of the team. He has worked in several areas of the business, including telesales, funded learning, the business development team and, more recently, on major projects.
Oliver Warburton joined AFI in 2006 as part of the Uplift acquisition and is another long-standing team member. He initially worked in area sales for AFI before progressing to a Regional Sales Manager role and moving into Wilson Access in 2013. Oliver will take over the management of the Unoperated North Sales team as well as retaining his Wilson Access role.
David McNicholas, CEO at AFI, said:
" Both promotions result from many years of outstanding contribution to AFI and are well deserved. Successful businesses can create opportunities for progression for people who have excelled and progressed within the company. We wish them both every success in their new roles. Ben has been instrumental in securing some longer-term projects and larger customers and will continue to focus on this area and increase our penetration on major projects. Oliver has led the charge on the impressive sales growth the Wilson Access business has achieved and will oversee the Area Sales teams for the Wilson and Unoperated North business."
