Renault Trucks dealer Diamond Trucks have strengthened their sales team with the recent appointment of Matthew Keys to the role of Sales Executive.
Although still in his mid-Twenties, Matthew is no stranger to the industry. From a farming background, he holds an HGV licence and can often be found behind the wheel of a truck, having worked in the past for one of the Province’s leading haulage companies as a fleet supervisor.
His first introduction to Renault Trucks was through his time at Renault Trucks approved dealer Toal Truck Services, Middletown in County Armagh where he was employed as Operations Manager for two years.
Although only having joined the team at Diamond Trucks earlier this year, Matthew has already made a positive impact at the Mallusk based dealership.
“Renault Trucks have a fantastic product portfolio,” he says. “Having been brought up on a busy family farm in Tyrone and having worked within the industry I know exactly what an operator needs, and with Renault we at Diamond Trucks are well placed to meet those requirements, with a vehicle range from 3.5 tonnes to 44 tonnes.”
Matthew, who has been spending much of his working day meeting new and established customers around the Province, says he has long term ambitions and is aiming to help increase Renault Trucks market share in Northern Ireland.
“This new appointment represents a great career opportunity for me and my goal is to build solid and lasting working relationships with customers. I realise there is more to just selling a truck; there needs to be strong and dependable after sales support, and we are here to serve the best interests of our customers. There is no such thing as ‘nine to five’ in the haulage industry, so if a customer needs to contact me at any time of the day or night, I will always be available.”
Matthew’s appointment has been welcomed by Diamond Trucks’ Dealer Principal Iain Latimer. “Matthew will be a great addition to our team. He is enthusiastic and keen to build the business and the brand in the months and years ahead.”
