Suzuki GB is pleased to announce that Mark Beeley is the new Head of its ATV and Marine Divisions, along with several other new roles within the department.
Mark has been with Suzuki for 13 years and his role has changed from that of National Sales Manager for Marine, to now encompass responsibility for the ATV product range as well.
A former member of the Royal Air Force Regiment, Mark joined Suzuki in 2006 and has previously looked after some of Suzuki Marine’s key Dealer and Boat Builder accounts throughout the UK and the Republic of Ireland as well as successfully increasing Suzuki’s sales and market share within the marine market.
Neil Disbrey will continue to support the team as Marine & ATV Coordinator and Charlotte Dyson fills a new role as Sales Operations Administrator focusing on specialist Marine and ATV knowledge. Neil says “Harvey and Mark make a great team and are a pleasure to work with. The 500 and 750 Kingquads are fantastic machines and an essential workhorse for farmers and landowners. I’m looking forward to working closely with Harvey, Mark and the team and helping to support our dealer network.”
Suzuki see their dealer network as key to their future success. This restructure allows Harvey Day, now ATV Sales Manager, to focus on Sales and Dealer Support. Suzuki’s award-winning King Quad 500XP is the flagship ATV in the range, and alongside the other models Suzuki want to build on this success to continue to grow market share.
Paul de Lusignan, Director for Motorcycle, Marine and ATV at Suzuki GB, said, “Mark has past experience with ATVs and we feel that ATV & Marine have worked well together so this change will keep the continuity to help us grow sales over the coming years. Mark has worked closely with Harvey over the past 15 months, so we see this as a seamless transition for both. Our network will see very little change as Harvey will remain the primary contact for our Dealers and will continue to support them as he has done in his previous role.”
On his promotion Mark said, “I am excited about this new opportunity and can’t wait to reacquaint myself with the agricultural sector and our utility ATV customers. I am looking forward to supporting Harvey and helping him continue the fantastic work that he has already done.”
