As the managing director of one of the UK’s largest rotating electrics suppliers, I have extensive experience in the automotive industry. I have presided over mergers and acquisitions and have a proven track record of growing each business I have worked in, managed and owned. I have used my skills, experience and ability to ensure product availability remains at an optimum and can predict market changes and developments often before they happen and manoeuvre the company into the best possible position, in order to take full advantage. In the automotive aftermarket, I have been a pioneer in breaking down the boundaries over supply and price issues and been successful in providing each customer with a value proposition that allows them to distinguish themselves and differentiate against the opposition. As a managing director, I am able to get the best out of a hard working team of 70+ people and delegate accordingly. In the past two years, our successes have been recognized in no less than three awards at both regional and national levels. Outside of work, I am a keen cyclist, guitar-playing enthusiast and enjoy the theatre.Managing Director WAIglobal UK & Europe, Africa & Middle East sales.
