Paul Williams

General Manager National Accounts, JCB

Standing for Re-election to HAE EHA Supply Chain Board 2019

42 Years old, Married with 3 children. I have worked for JCB for 14 years in Sales and Dealer Management and previously I was an Area Depot Manager for Enterprise Rent-a-Car. I have a 2:1 Business Management degree from Wolverhampton University.
The last 5 years I have been working as the General Manager of National Accounts in the UK, This role includes liaising with some of the largest rental customers in the UK, and HAE members, such as A-Plant, GAP Group, Speedy, Travis Perkins, Jewson, Hirebase, Ardent Hire Solutions, Charles Wilson, Nixon Hire and Morris Leslie. My skills are around account management, commercial negotiation and added value presentation. My main passion is with Innovation and differentiated value added relationships with our key customers.

JCB would like representation on the Board of HAE to offer support, services and expertise in the plant equipment industry. In the UK JCB generally takes 40% of the plant market so our products are integral part of most of the HAE membership. We of course are also interested in getting closer to the membership and HAE management to remain a vocal part of the industry community.

JCB are keen to offer our facilities to host conferences and events such as the upcoming HAE Dumper Digger Safety Group. Access to relevant JCB personnel such as engineering, product innovation and marketing could also be valuable.
My personal interests include Mountain Biking and being a Wolverhampton Wanderers FC season ticket holder.
