BANDAI NAMCO Amusement Europe (BNAE) has appointed Josh Hurst to the position of export sales manager.
Hurst had already held sales positions in a number of high profile companies within the industry.
His father, David Hurst, has long been well-respected in the UK amusement machine sector.
The younger Hurst will report directly to commercial and sales manager James Anderson, alongside colleagues Kjeld Erichsen and Julian Goicoa, and together they will cover markets throughout continental Europe, CIS, Middle East and other regions.
“We are very excited to have Josh join the team at BNAE as he has already built up a very good reputation as one of the most talented young sales people in the industry and like myself has grown up with an industry background,” Hurst said.
“BANDAI NAMCO is constantly growing and is active in many different regions, as well as product sectors. Therefore, we believe that this position is an excellent match for someone of his talent and ambition.”
James Anderson added: “It is perfect timing to have Josh join us on the stand at EAG, where he will be able get to know the international team as well as meet many of our customers. We expect he will hit the ground running.”
