In order to respond to the evolution of an increasingly complex and challenging international environment, Gates has recently re-aligned the Automotive Aftermarket organisational structure for EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa).
Frank Nieuwenhuys has been appointed in a newly created position as Director of Sales for the Gates branded automotive replacement products and services in the European market.
Nieuwenhuys began his career at Gates with the Aftermarket team in 2005. He brings in his new role a wealth of experience and knowledge of the market after having served in a variety of strategic key positions inside the company such as Business Development Director, International Group Account Executive, and the most recent being Director of Sales for Northern and Eastern Europe.
Gates is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of OE belt, hose and tensioner systems and a major player in the aftermarket sector with an exhaustive range of components for drive systems, cooling systems and fuel systems.
