iconsys bolsters its senior management with the appointment of John Loftus as Sales Applications Manager

iconsys are delighted to welcome John Loftus to the organisation following his appointment as Sales Applications Manager.

This new role has been recently created by the organisation in order to augment and further strengthen our senior management team and support our planned 2020+ growth strategy.

The importance of this senior management position cannot be overstated, as it will form a close connection between the company’s internal divisions and the customer, ensuring that the proper technical resources are brought to bear in the interpretation of customer requirements, in the preparation of proposals and in responding to requests for information and support.

John will be responsible for the Proposals and Tenders team, providing technical support and training whilst overseeing the technical backup provided to the Sales team, ensuring they are kept abreast of latest technologies. This will involve regular interaction with several internal teams as well as direct contact with customers in order to manage and coordinate technical resources in support of complex bids and thereby facilitate a successful and high-quality outcome.

He brings with him a wealth of engineering, project management and business development experience, having worked in the field of Applications Engineering & Robotics in a wide range of industries, as well as in the Higher Education sector.

With a Ph.D. in Electrical & Electronic Engineering, backed by an M.Eng. in Mechatronic Engineering, John is indeed well qualified to fulfil all aspects of this important position.

Phil Alston, iconsys Commercial Director, says “I am excited by John’s appointment as it represents another positive step forward for iconsys. John’s background fits well with iconsys’ extensive offering of specialist engineering services predominantly to the manufacturing sector. In these uncertain times, we need to maintain a positive outlook on the future, and recently we have seen significant growth in some sectors. Therefore, it is essential that additional investments are made to take full advantage of our unique position. John’s appointment will ensure our growth is managed in the best possible way so we can continue to provide the same high-quality service to our customers, and will put us in a very strong position to achieve our longer-term business growth strategy.  Welcome on-board John!”

John is currently looking to assemble an applications team, and so we are seeking initially to recruit a Sales Application Engineer. For more details on this and other vacancies please visit
