Atlas Copco has appointed a new general manager for its Compressor Technique business in the United Kingdom and Ireland.

Alexander Pavlov (pictured) takes on the role and will lead local operations with a clear mission to strengthen even further the market leader status of Atlas Copco Compressors across the region, the firm said.

A Belgian citizen, Pavlov graduated as a software engineer from St. Petersburg Marine Technical University and then worked for Alcatel group, prior to joining Atlas Copco Compressor Technique in Antwerp in 2003. He has held positions including information systems project manager and product marketing manager.

In 2011-2015, he was working as regional business line manager for South East Europe, based in Greece, followed by an assignment as country manager, Ireland.

Pavlov said: “It’s all about further profitable growth in all dimensions – sales of our core and new products, systems and services; plus further development of both direct and indirect sales channels, and continuous improvement of our operational efficiency for sales, marketing and service.”

Pavlov is not new to the Atlas Copco UK team, as for the last two years he has been managing the Compressors business in Ireland, interacting regularly with British colleagues.

He said: “I know many people in the UK customer centre and I can say that we have a great mix of experienced mature employees and young high potentials. It is a great honour to be leading such a team.”
