Hadfield succeeds Bottomley as Rockwell UK leader

02 May, 2019

Phil Hadfield has been appointed sales director of Rockwell Automation in the UK, succeeding Mark Bottomley, who has been promoted to the role of regional sales director, North, for Rockwell’s EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa) region. Hadfield, who was previously Rockwell’s UK utilities and transport sales manager, has been with the company since 2005 and brings 20 years of automation sales experience to the job.

Hadfield will be responsible for overseeing continued growth of Rockwell’s products, solutions and services in the UK, and for leading the expansion of its Connected Enterprise programme. He has recently had a strategic role across EMEA relating to the company’s investment in PTC, at the same time as building the UK utilities and transport team.

Bottomley has been promoted to his new EMEA role – which covers the UK, Ireland, the Nordic countries and Russia – less than three years after taking the helm of the UK operation. He has been with Rockwell for 12 years.

“It is a huge honour to take over from Mark Bottomley, who leaves an enviable legacy of record growth, ever deeper collaboration with our partners and a clear UK strategy," says Hadfield. "These foundations provide a fantastic opportunity for us to continue to build into the future, further developing the customer-centricity that I believe sets Rockwell Automation apart at this exciting time for UK industry.”

Hadfield: a fantastic opportunity

Both appointments have been made with immediate effect. The double announcement is part of structural changes designed to improve collaboration and integration across EMEA as Rockwell continues to grow and improve its service offering.
