Draper Tools boosts sales team

Draper Tools has appointed Paul Middlemiss as automotive sales manager.

Reporting into Adam Pike, head of automotive sales, he will help oversee the company’s continuing growth and expansion in the sector.

He said: “Draper is a brand with a strong history and heritage behind it and I’m looking forward to contributing to the company’s continued success. The role has already seen me getting out on the road, connecting with my existing automotive network and getting to know Draper’s valued customers in the sector too. I’m excited about the opportunities that lie ahead, together with the automotive team here, Draper’s got some ambitious plans and I can’t wait to start putting these into action.”

Middlemiss’ appointment continues a year of growth for the company, following the appointment of CEO Matt Sheen in January.

Sheen said: “It’s been a really exciting year at Draper Tools and having Paul join the team is a key part of that. The automotive sector is hugely important to us and Paul’s knowledge and experience will help us to thrive and grow in an industry that we’re really passionate about. I’ve no doubt he’ll be an asset to the business.”
