Julie Hartley joins Irizar UK
Widely experienced automotive specialist Julie Hartley has joined Irizar UK as its Business Development Manager.
Bringing over 25 years transport industry knowledge to the new role, pre-dominantly spent in sales and marketing functions within the bus and coach sectors, Julie returns to coach sales after nearly four years spent with Expo Management, organisers of the annual Euro Bus Expo and Coach and Bus Live shows: “It was an amazing and rewarding experience in which I saw the industry from a new perspective and met a great many industry suppliers as well as coach and bus dealerships and manufacturers,” she says.
“But I missed working within the industry in a commercial role and the time is right to move back to my roots, particularly with the Irizar UK team, which is new, fresh and has a great attitude to doing business. I am very much looking forward to getting back out there dealing face to face with operators.”
Steve O’Neill, Commercial Director at Irizar UK comments: “It’s great to have Julie onboard and to be supporting our senior management team. Irizar UK has been built around people and our relationships with customers, Julie is a superb fit to join our team. We have been really looking forward to Julie joining us and helping us to take Irizar UK to our next stage.”
