Oliver Beekes has joined Kubota UK.

Kubota (UK) has appointed Oliver Beekes as its tractor business unit dealer manager for agricultural and groundscare machinery ranges for the South and South-west of England.

Mr Beekes graduated from Harper Adams University with a degree in agricultural machinery, and with time spent with another manufacturer, he brings with him considerable experience as a product specialist and, latterly from his most recent role, as a territory manager.

“I’m looking forward to being challenged with continual dealer development and brand-building, to introduce Kubota to the wider farming community,” he said. “Kubota has a tremendous presence in groundscare and construction – and I’d like to see that replicated in agriculture, and be part of that success story.

“There’s growing demand from the industry for Kubota tractors and machinery, and aspiration from the company to be a major player in these markets – it’s a great time to be on this journey.”

Commenting on the appointment, Kubota UK’s agricultural and groundscare sales manager, Tim Yates, said it was a great opportunity to continue building on the growth already achieved in both agricultural and ground care markets across the South of England.

“With recent expansion of our dealer network, and many new products coming to market to enhance a very modern equipment portfolio, we’re in a great position to deliver growth for Kubota and our partners,” he added.
