Motor Wheel Service Distribution (MWSD) has strengthened its senior management team with Matthew Mardle joining as Operations Director and Clive Maudsley as Finance Director.
Mardle, who previously worked for Giti Tire in the roles of European Supply Chain Director and General Manager for Germany, will overview the company’s current distribution model in the UK and throughout Europe with a view to improving current processes and composition.
Maudsley, who has gained extensive European experience through his business consultancy firm, will take over full strategic financial planning of the business and create new structures to support overseas business growth.
Based at the company’s head office in Manchester and reporting directly to managing director John Ellis, both have the full support of the company’s experienced technical, sales and marketing functions.
John said: “In one year’s time [May 2017] the EU Roadworthiness Act* will be implemented, at which point every CV operator which drives in and across the European Union will need a full aftermarket structure in place to support its wheel purchasing and fitting operations.
“As we have maintained all along this will not place a financial burden on firms, quite the opposite as a well maintained wheel solution programme will improve the financial performance of every business.
“To take full advantage of this change in law and to advise fleets in every affected country, we also need to be in a position whereby the solution we offer in the UK can be delivered seamlessly throughout Europe. Matt and Clive will ensure we are in the best position to achieve these goals.”
