Foremost Electronics, the engineering-led Essex based importer and specialist distributor of electromechanical components and sub-systems, announces the appointment of industry veteran Dave Martin as their Director of Business Development. Most recently Managing Director and Sales Director for UK and Northern Europe at nVent Schroff, the market leading enclosure manufacturer, Dave has first-hand experience of both direct and distribution sales.

Alan Vincent, Sales Director of Foremost Electronics, says, “I have known Dave for a number of years, and we have a great working relationship. As our markets are evolving it was clear that our existing component distribution sales model needed updating to include a more integrated systems solution-based approach, a role for which he is ideally suited.”

Martin has experience of test and measurement, communications, aerospace and defence, rail and other markets and a strong background in systems including VME, CPCI, VPX.

He says, “I am excited to be joining Foremost Electronics in a Business Development role. Some years ago, I appointed Foremost as our key partner when I was the M.D. of Schroff UK Ltd and I have always been impressed with their customer focused approach and flexible business model dedicated to supporting the needs of all their customers and partners, almost irrespective of their spend, and I love that degree of customer focus. I view this as a great opportunity to help Foremost to deliver significant and continued growth into the future.”
