We would like to give a warm welcome to Mathew Hinton who has joined our Woods family. Mathew has been appointed as the Head of our Service Business Unit.
Mathew has joined Woods to lead all aspects of the business relating to the installed base. He will also lead activities to build optimised maintenance options into new project offerings.
He has a wealth of experience working with customers in many sectors and cultures in all continents. Earlier posts included Sales Director for MAN Energy Solutions UK, EMEA Sales Director for Brush Electrical Machines and Business Development Manager for MEA for Cummins Generator Technologies.
Matt established solid technical foundations and an understanding of the customers world long before his commercial roles. After completing a BEng Honours in Manufacturing Engineering he worked for Siemens for 14 years where he qualified as a Chartered Engineer specialising in build, testing and reliability of rotating assemblies. This expertise led to him becoming Principal Engineer with Napier Turbochargers for whom he investigated performance and improved reliability through experimentation on installations worldwide. Design and procedural changes resulting from his work improved customer satisfaction and dramatically reduced his employers warranty bill.
It was through this exposure to the end-users world and the enjoyment of assisting so many overseas cultures to improve operations, that Mathew moved into Sales Management where he has continued to focus on providing optimised solutions and adding value to customers worldwide.
Mathew seeks to establish and confirm Woods Air Movement as first choice when it comes to maintaining our fans installed in all applications worldwise.
