VT Celebrate New Sales & Marketing Manager 02/06/2016 – Posted in: News
Fraddon based machinery supplier, Vincent Tractors, are delighted to announce the appointment of their new Sales and Marketing Manager, Mr Matthew Hodge.
Matthew, who has already been working as Vincent Tractors’ Marketing Manager for the past twelve months, brings to the role over 20 years working in agriculture and marketing.
His appointment in this dual role will continue to help drive the family business, which this year celebrates 50 years at the heart of the Cornish farming community, into the future.
“I’m incredibly excited to be taking on the position of Sales and Marketing Manager,” said Matthew. “To be part of such a trusted and established business, and one that it very much growing and developing, is a real honour.”
Since joining Vincent Tractors, Matthew has already introduced a new website with an e-commerce section and led a stronger focus on social media and interactive online content. In his new position, Matthew hopes to continue to merge the online and offline worlds of farming.
“It’s a myth that farmers and technology don’t mix – just looking at the tractors that are being produced nowadays is proof of that. We have the potential to make Vincent Tractors even more accessible to the modern farmer” he commented.
Having joined the company through the Unlocking Potential scheme, Matthew has also spearheaded the introduction of the Vincent Tractors Scholarship, which will give one budding land based engineer the chance to be supported through an apprenticeship with Duchy College.
Commenting on the appointment, Paul Vincent, Managing Director, said, “We are delighted to welcome Matthew to this more senior position. He has more than proved himself with our marketing and we are certain that with his considerable experience he will be a real asset to the team.”
