Purcher International has appointed Claire Gould as their new Truck Salesperson.

Leading the truck division at the branch, Claire will be responsible for driving sales of Daimler Truck brands; Freightliner, Mercedes-Benz and Fuso, along with IVECO.

After joining the growing team at Purcher International in earlier this year, it quickly became apparent that Claire’s truck industry experience and strong customer focus would make her an excellent fit for the newly available role.

Craig Ajduk, branch manager at McIntosh & Son Geraldton and Purcher International, believes that Claire will be a strong addition to their sales team.

As a local with a background in the truck and agriculture industry, Craig said he is excited about the fresh perspective and customer-centric approach that Claire brings to the team.

“I knew Claire would be a great fit as she has worked with the industry for some time, giving her experience across several different roles including compliance and administration, so she understands the needs of customers and the requirements of trucks,” said Craig.

“Claire is organised, extremely customer focused and a great listener.”

“She is local and has a strong network already from her previous roles, so she is already proving to be a strong performer in the short time she has been here.”

“I’m excited for Claire and for us as a business.”

Claire is ready to dive head-first into her new role and start talking to people about the range of vehicles and offers available.

“The Fuso Canter Range is popular at the moment. The Canters are great with their large GVM & GCM ratings, and come with big trays so they hold a lot.”

“They can be operated on a car licence so are a great option for electricians, tradies and others wanting to move products around town.”

“I’m very excited about the Mercedes-Benz Actros range too. We have some stock coming in shortly, the safety features and technology are like none other I’ve seen!”

“We have a range of Fuso Canters and Fighters in stock, plus Iveco Dailys ready to drive away.”

“Daimler has tailored finance and services packages as well as a guaranteed buyback scheme, so with the end of the tax year in sight – it really is a great time to buy.”

In her new role, Claire is responsible for quoting trucks for local businesses, shires, and farmers, and plans to focus on developing relationships with the customer base.

“Without our customers, we have no business, so building strong relationships with them is vital,”

She is also committed to staying on top of industry developments and new technology through training and on-the-job learning.

“I’m heading to Melbourne for a 3-day training session with Daimler Trucks,” said Claire.

“Plus, I’ll continue my on-the-job training with our brand sales reps and in-house experts like our Service Manager, Linsey.”

“There will always be something to learn, new technology, new product lines – so it’ll be good to stay on top of it.”

“The support has been amazing already. Working for a company that is so welcoming and inclusive is honestly refreshing and gives me such a comfortable feeling, ” said Claire.

Craig said there were big plans for the company in MidWest.

“We’re committed to providing quality, reliable products that meet customer needs, and Claire’s appointment is an important step towards achieving this goal,” said Craig.
