Name: Nathan Jenks
Job Title: UK Territory Manager
When did you join HMK? September 2019
What does your new role involve: In my new role I am becoming part of the sales leadership team with responsibility for the northern territory. This is a proactive role working to develop and expand supply into our existing customer base and working to develop new accounts.
Previous experience and areas of expertise: Prior to joining HMK, I completed an Engineering apprenticeship with a large manufacturing business, which was my first employment opportunity from college. Over the 6+ years of employment, this apprenticeship progressed into a commercial role (TSM), working closely with overseas company-owned factories and independent distributors around the world.
What are you most looking forward to in your new role: I am excited about returning to a more proactive role in an area where I have significant experience. I am also looking forward to continuing my personal development at HMK and working closely with the senior team.
Best thing about working at HMK: There’s many things that make HMK such a great place to work, but for me it’s been invaluable to have an opportunity to build, experience and work with world-class products, due to the vast product portfolio at HMK. I am also able to build a solid technical foundation thanks to the years of experience my colleagues have, and the support and help they provide me.
Proudest achievement: Beating cancer and getting to the position I am currently at in both my personal and professional life.
Tell us an interesting fact about yourself: I have travelled to 25 different countries and my favourite country I’ve visited is Cyprus.
