Meet the Sales Team
Colin Adams- Dealer Principal
Colin began working for G & J East in February 1985 as an apprentice heavy diesel mechanic upon leaving school. He has worked through the ranks as a service person, spare parts salesperson, parts department manager, machinery sales person, and sales manager and is now the manager of the company.
It is a tremendous achievement by Colin, made more commendable by the fact that there have only been 3 previous managers in the company’s more than 80 years of trading.
Colin should be very proud of the fact that he becomes the first non-family member, dealer principal of G & J East.
Colin still leads the sales team as well as being responsible for guiding the 22 staff members through their daily operations. He’s also responsible for the overall leadership, organization, operation and strategic planning for the company.
