Get to know Jack McBain
Let me introduce myself, I’m Jack McBain and I am the Agricultural Sales Account Manager working out of HRN’s Brechin depot.
TELL US A LITTLE ABOUT YOURSELF
I am 21 years old, and I started off my career after school as an apprentice mechanic at a competing local agriculture dealer in the Angus area. I then left in search of a new challenge and joined the HRN team as a service technician working across all product ranges.
WHAT ATTRACTED YOU TO HRN AND SALES?
I jumped at the opportunity to join HRN when they opened in my local area where I know a lot of customers and how great an area this is for the products which HRN sell. I have always had an interest in selling and sales, and threw myself into the open events hosted by HRN when I was an apprentice to speak with customers and gain more confidence. This made me realise this was a career path I wanted to go down. When I qualified as a mechanic, I then decided to make the move across to sales and now I know that the sales team is where I want to be. I am now covering my local area of Angus, South Aberdeenshire and up to Stonehaven. It is great to be part of the Sale Team at HRN.
WHAT ARE THE HIGHLIGHTS OF YOUR JOB?
Highlights so far would be my first sale when I had to demo my first Kverneland 5FR plough which led to me selling it, it was a great feeling to know that I had done that. Also, I enjoyed attending my first Agricultural show as part of the HRN sales team – which was the Royal Northern Spring Show in Aberdeenshire in March. It was also great to see customers from my local depot travel to the show to stop and speak to!
WHERE DO YOU SEE THIS ROLE TAKING YOU?
I hope to help push HRN in a new area and thrive for success by taking on this sales role! I also want to grow good relationships with customers I already know and to develop lots of new ones!
FINALLY, TELL US WHAT YOU ENJOY DOING WHEN YOU’RE NOT WORKING
I like watching sports, I am a massive fan of football and when I am not playing it, I love watching my favourite team (I will not say what team it is). I also enjoy spending time with my friends and family.
