Rod’s retirement creates new career opportunity in business development . .

Our Sales Director of 5 years, Rod Hemphill, has finally decided to hang up his rate card and retire in December 2017.

Rod joined Twente in 2012 following the sale of his successful forwarding business Gen Logistics Ltd and he now feels the time is right for him to enjoy a quieter life on the golf course and spend more time with his grandchildren.

Twente Founder/Managing Director Trevor Paul commented “I have known Rod personally for over 30 years and it’s been a pleasure working with him during the last 5 years. He has opened up many new accounts for our Anglo-Benelux operation and he will be a hard act to follow.”

Rod however, will be involved in the recruitment of his successor who will need to demonstrate a successful track record in maintaining and developing new accounts with worldwide exporters and importers – incorporating road, sea and air modes.

The successful candidate’s main focus will be to create meaningful relationships with our 400 plus customers to ensure that they fully understand the portfolio of delivery services that we can provide – for shipments that are carried on our own driver accompanied services or via the services of our preferred partners.

You will however be just as comfortable helping out in the forwarding department during busy times as you will be meeting customers face to face, accordingly a professional telephone manner, good presentation skills and computer literacy will be essential.

Salary and package is negotiable depending upon experience but can be expected to be above usual market levels.

If you would relish the challenge of stepping into Rod’s shoes and starting a rewarding long term career with an established and profitable privately owned company, please send your CV together with a covering note outlining your current salary/package and career aspirations in confidence to :- Trevor Paul, Managing Director.
