Adrian Poole, an experienced sales executive with an engineering background, has joined manufacturer and distributor Morris Site Machinery.

Poole has been appointed sales executive for the North and will be selling its range of equipment from lighting towers to welders, generators, pumps and pressure washers, to hire companies and end users.

Poole will cover an area from Cheshire to the Scottish borders. He said: “I started out as an engineer and have spent 25 years in sales. I wanted a new challenge where I would feel at home and could use all my experience. Joining this long-established family company is a really good fit and everything I thought it would be.”

Formerly regional sales manager for Kidde Fire Systems, Poole has also worked with UK fire and rescue services, training firefighters in the use of fire pumps.

Poole added: “I’m looking forward to renewing relationships with former contacts, meeting existing customers and building new business with the great products we have to offer.”
