WEG UK’s growth continues apace, with the appointment of Philip Hall, a highly skilled, senior professional in business development, to its sales team. Phil has over 30 years’ experience in the electric motor and drives markets, working with major companies such as Siemens, Rockwell, Reliance, Teco-Westinghouse and Parker Hannifin. He was most recently employed as Business Development Manager for Brook Crompton.
Russell Maccabe, WEG’s UK Sales Manager, says: “Our expansion and growth in the UK mirrors that of WEG worldwide, with global earnings from the WEG Group now exceeding $3.3 billion. The appointment of such a seasoned market professional as Phil Hall is another step in our UK growth plan. His job, as ‘Industry Manager’, is to look in to key industry sectors, such as Water and Waste Treatment, Oil and Gas and Power Generation, contacting end users, consultants, EPCs & OEMs and using his experience and knowledge to get WEG recognised and approved.”
Phil Hall is well qualified to undertake this task, having been involved in marketing and selling motors, including large HV and MV units, drive units and automation to key industries since 1981.
Hall says: “My experience of Business Development in strategic market sectors means that I am able to be effective immediately in my new position. WEG is a real global success story, coming from nowhere 50 years ago to a $3billion-plus worldwide corporation today. I am looking forward to playing an active role in this continuing success story.
“Apart from the entrepreneurial ethos that is very evident in WEG, what also attracted me to the company was the integrated portfolio of power supply, power distribution, power transmission and turnkey automation system products that WEG now offers across the widest range of industries. These address the key segments that we wish to penetrate further: over 400 different product lines, all offering the highest levels of technology, efficiency and protection.”
Philip Hall started in his new position with WEG UK on 5 March. He is based at WEG’s UK headquarters in Redditch, and can be contacted on 07799 881253 or by email at . Further information about WEG UK’s electric motors and related control equipment can be found at www.weg.net.
