There’s a new team member at TBF Thompson DAF Trucks; Gerard O’Dea is settling into his new role as Area Sales Manager, based at the dealership’s Mallusk, Newtownabbey premises.
Gerard, who lives in Antrim, is no stranger to the world of commercial sales, having worked in the van sector for the past 16 years with another manufacturer.
Prior to that, he spent several years promoting LDV vans, coincidentally with TBF Thompson who had the franchise back then!
“Moving up into the truck sector has been a fresh challenge that I am enjoying,” says Gerard, who is married with a young son. “I have always been customer focused; I know what they demand of a vehicle and DAF Trucks have an industry leading resilient and robust range that is well respected wherever you go.”
He adds: “I am looking forward to meeting new and established customers, to building up strong working relationships with them, which will enable me to service and support their needs.
“I am very impressed with the set up at TBF Thompson where everyone works together as a team to meet the requirements and demands of the transport sector, and hopefully I can be instrumental in further growing DAF’s customer base in the months and years ahead.”
