    Hefin Rowlands Territory Manager

Here at Lister we have had a lot of change over the last 12 months from a new range of products, changes in our working practise and several new faces.

As a company we are constantly striving to improve and grow and continuously welcome positive change. We feel the new appointment of Hefin Rowlands as UK Territory Manager will enable us to offer more support to our current and new customers within the UK and expand the market helping to reach new opportunities in the industry.

Going forward Hefin will help Lister achieve its goal in forging even stronger relationships with the shearing and equine industry and community within the UK. Lister don’t just look to produce market leading products but also strive to bring the equine and shearing communities/networks together to help educate and introduce best working practices across the globe to ensure safety for both the user and the animal.  At Lister, we are here to support the retailers with product as well as offering a consultancy and training to the market.

Hefin has joined Lister with a wealth of experience across the equine, shearing and cattle industry and will help support the UK market in our home territory. Hefin has a background in sheep shearing working for 6 years almost full time as a shearer across the UK, Norway, New Zealand and France and even winning the junior golden shears title in Masterton, New Zealand 2014. Over the last 6 years Hefin has worked for Wynnstay, spending 5 years as an Animal Health rep in Mid Wales, before becoming a UK sales manager for an agricultural technology company. During this time, he also won the National SQP award (Suitably Qualified Person), now known as RAMA (Registered Animal Medicine Advisor).

Hefin said “I’m thrilled to be joining the team here at Lister as UK Territory Manager. It’s great to be involved in an industry I have a great passion for and in what is clearly some exciting times ahead for Lister. I’m looking forward to getting out there to meet customers old and new within the shearing and clipping world”

Martin Head of Sales and Commercial said “We are delighted to add Hefin to our Sales team, Hefin’s market knowledge, experience and positive attitude will be a great addition. I am sure Hefin will help deliver on our commitment to position Lister top- of-mind for people in the Shearing and Clipping markets and provide top class sales and after sales service.”

We look forward to seeing Hefin settle into his new role and see the future of Lister grow through new products, the passion of the agricultural community and the expansion of the Lister family.
