VTG Rail UK welcomes new Sales Account Manager

VTG Rail UK has appointed Joseph Grady as its new Sales Account Manager

This position opened up due to Raj Sharma’s move into Engineering and we have confidence that Joseph will be able to fill the void left by Raj.

With 7 years of Sales/Account Management experience, Joe has the fundamentals for what’s required as a VTG Sales Account Manager. Joe arrives from a role most recently in logistics as a Commercial Account Manager; therefore, has experience to support his transition to the rail freight industry. Speaking on his appointment during his first week, Joe said: “I am new to the rail industry but relishing the opportunity to grow within a successful and reputable business.”

During his career, he has maintained and developed business relationships with various global partners, most recently with Nintendo where he was responsible for budget assessment, cost control and driving revenue. Previously a Sales Executive in Aerospace for 5 years, Joe managed the servicing of aircrafts in line with forecasting for 18 clients within the EMEA region. His time in this role enabled him to understand the importance of meeting customer needs and expectations, resulting in customer retention through his expertise.

The latest member to join VTG Rail UK added: “I am really pleased to have joined VTG and I am looking forward to gaining a thorough understanding of the business and the industry. As well as adding value to the team’s shared goals and growing the relationships with clients."

Marc Hurn, VTG Rail UK Sales & Marketing Director expressed his excitement of Joe’s appointment: “I would like to welcome Joe to the VTG family and our superb customer base.  He is bringing passion and experience, outside of the traditional rail industry, so I'm looking forward to the benefits that this will bring and wish him all the success.”

We can’t wait to see Joe’s expertise translate to rail to help us maintain and reinforce VTG’s position as the UK’s leading freight wagon lessor.
