John Deere claims that following the establishment of its worldwide agriculture and turf business unit in 2009, the company has been restructuring its sales and marketing organisation across Europe, Africa and the Middle East.
Several new appointments have been announced as part of the streamlining of the UK and Ireland business to be more focused on sales and dealer development.
Gordon Day, who has been with John Deere since 1983, has taken up the new position of branch tactical marketing manager for agriculture and turf, replacing Chris Meacock, who has moved to Mannheim in Germany as tactical marketing manager.
Edward Stephenson, who has been with the firm since 1998, has been appointed as agricultural division sales manager for the north of England, Scotland and Ireland.
In his 11th year with the company, Chris Wiltshire has been appointed as John Deere Limited's training manager, replacing Neil Macer, who has moved to a new product marketing role in Germany.
