RTR appoints new UK General Manager

RTR Handelsgesellschaft, an independent pressure parts supplier, has just appointed Matt Fletcher as UK general manager. Based in Gateshead, Matt will be responsible for managing the UK operation and developing sales in the power industry.

“We were looking for a motivated and experienced manager to help us grow sales in the UK and internationally. With his technical background and experience, Matt was a great match. We are delighted to have him on board!” said Philip Ross, managing director and co-owner of RTR Handelsgesellschaft.

Matt spent the last eight years as sales manager linings covering the EMEA region for an international paint manufacturer. He provided additional technical support to the team on the ground and looked after customers in heavy process industries such as oil & gas, power generation etc.

Originally from Ipswich, Matt came to the North East to study and gained a Master in Mechanical Engineering at the University of Newcastle. A fluent German speaker, Matt also spent one year at the Fachhochschule in Osnabrück and can add the German equivalent ‘Diplom-Ingenieur’ to his qualifications.

Other strings to his bow are a Certificate and Diploma in Marketing by the Chartered Institute of Marketing (CIM) and intermediate Italian skills.
