Welcoming Augusto to the organisation, Mustapha Hadj-Ahmed, ITL Sales Director said, “Augusto will be involved in a wide range of sales activities, from formulating and executing a sales and business strategy targeted at his dedicated territory, identifying sales opportunities, generating and following up leads, visiting existing and new customers to secure additional business, grow our customer base and increase market share in the region. He will also support and offer technical assistance to local trading partners and attend trade shows and exhibitions around South America. Augusto will be working closely with Fernando, our local General Manager in Brazil, who has been with ITL for a long time, and is therefore ideally placed to give him the best possible introduction.”

I am excited to bring this experience to ITL to truly understand customers’ needs to ensure they achieve the best possible solution for their projects. I am eager to start interacting with the existing and new customer base to map their needs and fulfil their expectations.”
Concluding Mustapha said, “Using his established technical expertise and sales capabilities, I am looking forward to seeing Augusto focus his efforts on our retail clients to make their success our business. I am excited to see how our business in Brazil and South America will develop in this ever-changing and growing region.”
