Schaeffler appoints Sky Russell and Steven Woods as Territory Managers

Schaeffler has recently appointed two new Territory Managers, both covering the north.

Sky Russell from Cannock in Staffordshire joins Schaeffler following three years at GSF Car Parts, where she progressed to become Branch Manager.

Sky Russell brings market knowledge

Sky began her automotive career working at her father’s garage at weekends aged just 14. She went on to pursue a college mechanic course, but at 17 moved over to the factor side, working at Euro Car Parts and Motor Parts Direct.

On her move to Schaeffler, Sky Russell said: “I am unbelievably excited for this new role and feel it is the perfect next step for my career within the automotive world.

“Over the last 12 years I have loved fitting and selling Schaeffler products. I was also lucky enough to join the Schaeffler team on a trip to their incredible factories in Germany where I really saw and felt how phenomenal the business is.”

Experience counts for Steven Woods

Meanwhile, Steven Woods, based in Ellsemere Port, is new to the trade but brings with him 15 years experience in retail as a store manager and regional trainer at Aldi. 

“I am extremely excited about the new role, working in automotive has always appealed to me,” Said Steven Woods. “I always had a passion for cars which came from seeing my grandfather work on them when I was a young lad and from that I always maintained a keen interest.

“When the role came up at Schaeffler, it felt like the perfect fit. Not only would I get to work and challenge myself in the automotive industry, but I would get to do so for one of the biggest brands.”

Matthew Selby, Sales and Marketing Director at Schaeffler Automotive Aftermarket (UK) Ltd, believes that the enthusiasm expressed by the pair will come across when they meet their customers. He said: “Both Sky and Steven are passionate about their new roles, and this will be an asset to us as a company, and to the garages and factors they are working with. I welcome them both and wish them the best of luck.”
