Midlands-based JVM Castings has appointed a new Group Sales Manager to help the company meet growth targets over the next few years.

Bob Freeman, who joined the team earlier this month, brings with him 32 years of experience in the castings and automotive industries, most recently with Sales & Purchase Management roles at King Automotive Systems Ltd and Sarginsons Industries Plc.

Prior to that, Bob held a Supervisory MP&L role at Jaguar Cars’ Radford Plant in Coventry for almost a decade. His background in aluminium castings for the automotive, construction and civil engineering sectors made him a natural choice for JVM Castings, who in 2014 celebrated their 50 year relationship with Jaguar Land Rover as a Tier 1 supplier.

As Group Sales Manager at JVM, Bob will be responsible for enhancing the development of the company throughout its existing customer base, ensuring current clients receive the maximum value and support as well as seeking opportunities across new markets.
