Heiko Selzam has been appointed to the position of National Sales Director, Mercedes-Benz Trucks UK Ltd.
In his new role, Heiko reports to Mercedes-Benz Trucks UK Ltd Managing Director Mike Belk, and is responsible for providing direction to drive, develop and continue to professionalise the Mercedes-Benz Trucks sales function. Although he is based in Milton Keynes, Heiko will regularly travel around the country visiting customers and Mercedes-Benz’s dealer partners.
Commenting on his appointment, Heiko said “It’s fantastic to step up to this position. 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.”
Heiko brings a host of experience to the role, with a proven track record in both the retail and wholesale Mercedes-Benz Truck sales business. His most recent role has been at Mercedes-Benz Luxembourg, where he worked for the last three years as Director of Sales & Marketing for Commercial Vehicles. Prior to his time in Luxembourg, Heiko was Sales & Marketing Director, Commercial Vehicles for Daimler in the Middle East. He therefore not only has an extensive knowledge of Mercedes-Benz products, but also the FleetBoard telematics service and the full range of down-stream products.
Mike said: “We are delighted to welcome Heiko to the team. 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.”
