Paul Watson is a prominent figure in the UK materials handling industry
Duo Group Holdings has expanded its management team with the addition of Paul Watson as the new general manager of Seoul Ltd.
Seoul is a new division of Duo Group created to offer sales, rental, contract hire and after-sales support for Doosan construction equipment including excavators, articulated dump trucks and wheeled loaders.
Within Seoul, Watson is charged with developing long-term, mutually beneficial partnerships with corporate customers with the backing of the Doosan brand.
Coventry, UK-based Duo Group provides processing solutions for the quarrying, aggregate, recycling & handling industries.
Watson has previously led sales teams through multi-channel routes-to-market – corporate accounts, regional and dealer network – by developing and implementing short and long-term strategies through detailed analysis and stress-testing.
Having worked for Doosan for over 14 years in commercial, sales and marketing director roles, Watson is a prominent figure within the UK materials handling industry, having also served on the board of directors of BITA (British Industrial Truck Association) and IMHE (Independent Materials Handling Exhibitions).
Watson commented on his new role: “First-class service with a quality, reliable product range at the best possible price, is what our existing customers tell us, and that’s what we’ll deliver.
“The Doosan product range of heavy excavators, wheeled loaders and articulated dump trucks lends itself perfectly to this sector, and we are already in negotiations with a number of high-profile customers and prospects, who want to explore this new and exciting opportunity from Seoul and Duo Group Holdings.”
