Burnt Tree’s contract hire team expands

Burnt Tree has recruited Tracey Cox and Mark Pattinson, as contract hire business development managers. The first two staff to join its newly created contract hire division.

Burnt Tree’s director of contract hire Mark Howell (pictured) said: “When I first joined Burnt Tree earlier this year, I said that I was looking forward to developing this new division of the business and applying my skills and knowledge to building a team of key industry sales personnel to sit alongside the already professional management and operational teams here at Burnt Tree.

“The addition of Tracey and Mark is the first stage in a series of proven experienced sales appointments that we have planned for the division over the next few months.”

An experienced industry professional, Cox celebrates eight years with Burnt Tree this year having been with the company since 2006, and is well known to its customers in her current role at the company, based out of the company’s head office in Shrewsbury.

Prior to joining Burnt Tree, Tracey worked for another rental and leasing company for a six-year period in a number of rental and contracts roles.

Pattinson brings a wealth of experience in the temperature controlled vehicle sector to the Burnt Tree contract hire team, having joined the company from rivals Petit Forestier, where he spent five years as southern regional sales manager.

During his time at PF, Pattinson won the ‘European Salesman of the Year 2010’ and prior to this position, he spent 12 years working at Ryder in a variety of sales roles.
