Fri, 22nd Sep 2023

Krank, a leading SaaS heavy equipment trading platform, has announced the appointment of David McCarthy as its Global Head of Sales, effective immediately. The move comes as part of Krank's strategy to expand its global salesforce and solidify its market position.

McCarthy brings with him a wealth of experience, having worked at prestigious investment firms such as Merrill Lynch and UBS early in his career. He has also held leadership roles in boutique structured finance firms and more recently managed sales for a trading platform white label provider. His background will serve him well in his new role, where he will be responsible for evolving, developing, and leading the company’s regional sales teams.

Notably, McCarthy was an early investor in Krank and is excited to now be a part of the company's day-to-day operations. "Krank has gained fantastic momentum and reached an exciting junction. The company is primed for the development of a dedicated global sales team," says McCarthy. He further adds, "I always believed in Krank’s unique and game-changing concept. I’m delighted to have this opportunity to join the team and use my front-line sales & leadership experience on Krank’s behalf."

Krank's platform offers an innovative solution for the heavy equipment trading industry, and according to McCarthy, it’s designed to be as flexible as possible. "Solving difficulties, both old and new, while making the transition as frictionless as possible, positions Krank as an essential resource,” McCarthy concludes.

Mark Turner, CEO and founder of Krank, expressed his enthusiasm about the appointment, stating, "It’s great to have David take on such an important role at such an exciting time in the company’s rapid development." Turner is particularly impressed with McCarthy's skills in effective communication and his ability to secure strategic partnerships. "I firmly believe his appointment will be instrumental in propelling Krank to new heights," Turner says.

McCarthy's appointment comes at a pivotal time for Krank as the company looks to scale up its operations and take advantage of the growing demand for digital trading platforms in the heavy equipment industry. With his experience and leadership, the company appears to be well-positioned for its next phase of growth.
