Dave felt the show was beneficial and a great opportunity to meet with retailers spanning his new regional sales patch.

“It was a busy show full of quality sales leads, great to see such a good turnout of dealers and consumers alike who echo my feelings that face-to-face contact can be done in a safe and socially distanced manner.

“Not only was it great to re-connect with my business contacts but it gave me an opportunity to remember why I enjoy working in this industry so much.

“Following time away you can easily see why there’s longevity in a mobility industry career due to the rewarding nature and genuine connections.”

Jonathan Hearth, Managing Director of Electric Mobility, commented: “We were delighted to see Dave’s proactive, friendly, and professional sales approach in action at Naidex and have an ongoing training programme to ensure our Midland retailers can rely on Dave for any questions, concerns, and orders.

“I am sure our network of authorised retailers will join me in embracing Dave within the mobility industry, as we have internally.”
