Kubota appoints new key account manager

Kubota UK, a manufacturer of mini-excavators, tractors and groundcare solutions, has strengthened its sales team with the appointment of a new key account manager.

Leana Horton joins Kubota from construction plant hire specialist Hewden, where she looked after national accounts including civil engineering contractors Murphys.  She also built up and managed the Crossrail project for Hewden, turning it into a strategic account for the business.

As Kubota’s key account manager, Horton will be responsible for maintaining and developing strategic partnerships with fleet customers throughout the UK, focusing mainly on the range of mini excavators from 0.75 – 8.0T, but also offering the breadth of products across the construction, tractor and groundcare product ranges.

Kubota managing director Dave Roberts said: "Leana’s appointment is all about adding value to the service we provide our key account customers, working closer with them to provide support and a first class service offering to ensure they get the best out of their Kubota fleet. She brings years of industry insight and expertise with her to this role, particularly on the construction side, and we are excited to have such an experienced professional join our sales team."
