DC Battery Technologies Ltd, the UK’s fastest-growing battery distributor, has appointed Mark Baker as its new National Sales Director. Mark brings 25 years’ experience in the UK battery, charging and DC power industries to his new role. He will be responsible for managing a sales team of six and growing the company’s sales from core battery technologies including Trojan, Lithium, Lead Acid AGM, GEL and Carbon Gel Deep Cycle batteries.
Mark’s previous experience in the UK battery industry includes senior roles as a National Head of Sales, managing the sales operation from initial strategy development through to target delivery, and a National Sales Executive for New Projects where he led a new product launch project for 2v cells for the materials handling industry.
Before that, Mark was also National OEM Account Manager with leading European manufacturer, Hoppecke Industrial Batteries, as well as holding senior sales management roles at Shield Batteries, sales manager positions at Ecobat Batteries and Fiamm Automotive Ltd., and was a company owner/director for Yeovil and Poole battery centres (later bought out by Shield Batteries).
Commenting on his new role, Mark Baker said: “It’s an exciting time to join the fastest-growing battery company in the UK. Although it’s a standalone company, we’re part of a major European group with a fantastic, specialist product range from world-leading manufacturers such as Trojan and C&D Technologies.
“Although the group is already established in Europe, we’re a relatively new company in the UK market so we’re committed to helping the company to become the ‘go-to’ place for industrial and leisure batteries.”
