30 Nov Control expands its sales capacity with new hire
Richard Hull joins Control as VP of Sales to accelerate the company's Race Winning Telemetry solutions
Control is pleased to announce that Richard Hull has joined the Race Winning Telemetry provider as VP of Sales and to lead the opening of Control’s USA Operations in early 2021.
Richard joins Control with a wealth of motorsport experience, having led sales initiatives in motorsport electronics for the past 12 years, with teams and manufacturers ranging from Formula One to WRC, NASCAR to MotoGP.
Richard’s passion for Motorsport dates back to one of his earliest memories spectating at Brands Hatch, later going on to become a driver and then, at the age of 20, his childhood obsession became his career. He quickly found his niche in motorsport electronics and has spent more than a decade in various positions working with teams and manufacturers at the highest level of Motorsport. Most recently Richard held a 6-year tenure at McLaren Applied Technologies before joining Control.
“A love of Motorsport is key to what we do here at Control. Not only does Richard have this in abundance but he also backs this up with an exemplary industry understanding and experience that will help us to accelerate our plans for the market,” said Nathan, “Our growth to-date has been driven by our market-leading solutions which have ultimately transformed the use of cellular telemetry in Motorsport; with Richard on board we’re now in a position to take this success to the next level.”
This December, Richard will be working closely with Nathan Sanders, Founder & Technical Director of Control and the wider team, focusing on expanding Control’s current customer footprint and increasing the awareness of our truly global solutions before returning to Charlotte, North Carolina, USA where our Control USA Inc. operation will open in early 2021.
“I’ve have known Nathan for many years and have been following the brand since its inception keeping a close eye on their disruptive approach to telemetry and their progress in becoming the dominant provider to teams that want the best telemetry solution available. So, when the opportunity arose for me to become part of the leadership team at Control it was a no-brainer! To be able to work with Nathan and the team, and see their vision and dedication is inspiring. I look forward to becoming part of the success story of Control”
