Handheld Group  has made key appointments to its global sales team, focusing on markets in north Germany, the United States and Scandinavia.

A fast-growing supplier of rugged PDAs, smartphones and mobile computers, Handheld Group has added three managers to its team in response to rapid growth worldwide, as well as to position the company to provide continued strong support for its resellers in anticipation of more growth.

Oliver Warn, sales manager for north Germany, has 25 years of experience in sales and a degree in export merchandising and commercial correspondence. Warn previously worked as a sales manager in the AutoID market, pursuing his passion for barcoding and RFID technology in positions at Nordic ID and Psion Teklogix.

U.S. Sales Manager Terence Howard holds a degree in electronics engineering and brings to Handheld more than 20 years of experience in the telecom and wireless-device industries. He was previously the national sales manager for Alcatel One Touch. Howard has deep technical and product knowledge and a proven record of building strong relationships within the Wireless Carrier Partner channel.

Erik Hoekstra, a graduate of Handheld’s yearlong Management Trainee Program, is the new sales manager for Handheld’s Scandinavian subsidiary. Hoekstra holds a degree in business economics and has a strong drive toward sales and entrepreneurship. Prior to joining Handheld, Hoekstra founded his own company, where he gained important sales and business experience.

Welcoming the new managers to the Handheld team, Thomas Löfblad, vice president of global sales at Handheld Group commented that they have an interesting year ahead, with some attractive new products. The company anticipates more growth, which will require a strong, sales-focused organisation to support their resellers.

Handheld’s line-up of rugged PDAs and mobile computers is specifically developed for use in tough environments in industries such as geomatics, logistics, forestry, public transportation, construction, mining, field service, utilities, maintenance, public safety, military and security.
