Continental Tyres has promoted its former regional truck tyre general sales manager to the role of truck tyre sales director for the UK and Ireland. The new appointment will see Grant Willman head up Continental Tyres' truck sales team from its UK headquarters in Datchet. Grant's career with Continental spans more than 15 years, starting as the truck sales manager for the south east.

Following a stint in tyre marketing, Grant returned to sales as the truck regional sales manager for the south, before moving into the role of UK trade sales and network manager. An 18-month stint in consumer sales led to Grant's most recent post as general sales manager. Speaking of his appointment, Grant Willman said: "I'm proud to be taking up the mantle of truck tyre sales director in the UK.

The sector has great potential and is an area that we as a business are keenly focused on over the months and years ahead. Never has the need to achieve the lowest overall driving costs been more important for operators. By working with Continental, we're confident that fleets of all sizes can benefit from our holistic tyre management approach."

Grant's appointment comes weeks after Continental announced a shake up to its truck tyre range. Following the introduction of the new Conti Eco Generation 5 tyre in April, Continental is rationalising its tyre lines for freight transportation. For maximum efficiency and the lowest rolling resistance, the Conti EfficientPro is best suited to motorway use.

The new Conti Eco tyre range marries exceptional mileage with improved fuel efficiency to create a highly effective mixed motorway and regional tyre.

Those operating in multiple environments can fit the Conti Hybrid, which delivers strong all-round performance.
