THIS month vehicle CCTV and safety technology experts Innovative Safety Systems Ltd (ISS) are joined by new Board Director, Jonathan Thomas.
Jonathan leaves his position as General Sales Manager for refuse vehicle manufacturer Dennis Eagle bringing with him over 17 years of experience in the waste management sector.
Jonathan’s career in the sector began when he worked as an Hydraulic fitter for a bin lift manufacturer and then as a demonstration driver for Jack Allen, before moving over to Dennis Eagle when the company was bought out.
Jonathan: “I started out working for a local engineering firm manufacturing bin lift parts and worked my way up through the ranks at Jack Allen and then Dennis Eagle. I've built and driven refuse vehicles, and have a hands-on understanding about how they operate, which is very useful when I'm talking to customers and operational staff. I’m really excited about joining the ISS team and to taking on this new challenge.”
A successful and popular member of the sales force, one of Jonathan’s biggest achievements was selling over 200 vehicles in one year.
Gavin Thoday, Director of ISS Ltd is delighted to have Jonathan on board: “I’ve known Jonathan for some years and we have a great skills match. The waste management industry is a major target sector for us and Jonathan’s experience and knowledge will be invaluable.”
Going forward Jonathan and Gavin have big plans for ISS, including expanding the business into new markets and developing more innovative products.
