Ben Burgess announces new Depot Manager

16 July 2019 Ben Burgess News

Since the tragic, untimely loss of Steve Trostler, Ben Burgess’ Board of Directors have been managing the Coates branch along with resources pooled from within our Group. The position of branch manager for any of our outlets is fundamentally important to us to provide local decision making and maintain excellent customer support.

We are, therefore, pleased to announce that Anthony Fincham joined us on Monday, 15th July 2019, as the new Coates Branch Manager.

Tony, as he prefers to be known, has spent all his working life in agriculture. Beginning his career in Devon as a trainee agricultural engineer, he went on to become Service Manager of Anker of Coates in 1994.

After a few years as an assistant farm manager on a farm local to Coates, Tony realised his job satisfaction was in retail and engineering. He joined the sales department of a competitive local machinery dealer in 2002 where he was made Sales Director in 2007. For the following 10 years he was responsible for overseeing both their sales and service departments. More recently, he has been an Aftersales Branch Manager for another local dealership.

Tony’s lifelong knowledge of the agricultural engineering business means that he will be able to offer an excellent level of support to our customers, and all departments and staff at Ben Burgess Coates.
