Bottomley: a fantastic opportunity

Rockwell Automation has appointed Mark Bottomley as its new UK sales director, succeeding Dave Nicholl, who has become CEO of Philips Lighting for the UK and Ireland. Bottomley will be responsible for overseeing the continued growth of Rockwell Automation products, solutions and services in the UK, and for leading the expansion of Connected Enterprise principles and solutions.

Bottomley, a chemical engineer, has been with Rockwell since 2015, and oversaw the integration of ProsCon and LeKtroniX into its Irish business, as well as taking on senior roles within the UK and EMEA region in the life sciences sector. He previously worked for Eurotherm.

Marcel Woiton, Rockwell Automation’s Northern regional sales director, says that Bottomley “brings with him a huge wealth of technical experience from the multiple roles he has held at Rockwell Automation, as well as familiarity with the UK market and extensive insight into the operational needs of a wide range of customers.”

Bottomley describes his appointment as “a fantastic opportunity to contribute to the continued development of Rockwell Automation as a leader in industrial automation. It’s an exciting time for all of us, as the Connected Enterprise approach begins to unlock the potential of the Industrial Internet of Things for our customers.”
