The Board of Directors of Brand Rex, the leading cable and data solutions company, has announced the appointment of Martin Gossling as Global Sales and Marketing Director (Communications Business). A business leader with a wealth of international experience and distinguished track record, Martin will be responsible for providing strategic direction and dynamic leadership to a global sales team, as Brand-Rex looks to drive its business forward.
"I am delighted to appoint Martin Gossling as Global Sales and Marketing Director (Communications Business) with immediate effect," says Brand-Rex CEO, Paul Lines. "He brings with him a wealth of sales and marketing knowledge and considerable international experience."
Having held senior management positions at world-class corporate and privately-funded organisations including Regeneris, Motorola, and Heraeus Silica & Metals Ltd., Martin has led at the forefront of technology and electronics innovation for more than 25 years. He has a First Class Honours Degree in Design & Technology from Loughborough University, and extensive experience at all stages of the product lifecycle - from design and components, through to commercial hardware and software products, after-sales service and support. Moreover, he has experience in contract law and contract development for business deals worth over US$500 million, and also won numerous awards for business development, sales, and team leadership - including Motorola's ‘Teaming for Excellence Award' and EMEA salesperson of the year - even managing the team that scooped a BAFTA in the ‘interactive music' category for mobile music creation during his time as VP Global Sales at Tao Group.
"Brand-Rex is a great British company that has established a world-class portfolio of communications cabling products and solutions, backed by a proud history of innovation and project delivery on the global stage," states Martin Gossling. "It has a very strong customer base and respected brand, and competes with the major corporations in today's very challenging economic conditions. We will be even smarter, more dynamic and visible in winning new business, and I aim to build on our history of success, and reputation as a supplier of excellence to cement Brand-Rex' position as a Tier-1 provider of both datacommunication and telecommunication solutions worldwide."
The appointment of Martin Gossling, complements the selection of Alistair Black as Operations Director earlier this year, and reflects Brand-Rex' determination to drive forward business growth. Ian Wilkie, formerly Business & Marketing Director, will take up the appointment of Supply Chain Director.
Brand-Rex has won a number of major international contracts this year, and was also recently confirmed as the UK leader in structured cabling for the second year running, by independent research firm BSRIA. This accolade was achieved following sales of over 1.1 million data outlets in 2009, which gave Brand-Rex an 18 percent share of the UK market - 3 percent higher than that of its closest rival.
Brand-Rex Ltd is a global operation, designing, developing and manufacturing the most sophisticated, high performance copper and fibre cabling systems for communications and extreme environment applications. Headquartered in Scotland, the company is committed to being a trusted market leading provider of best-in-class communication infrastructure solutions that are truly ‘future proof'.
