New ops man for C&C

Mark Newnes has been appointed operations director at Oldham-based Car & Commercial Vehicle Services (C&C).

Mark joins C&C after more than 12 years at Fraikin, one of Europe’s largest commercial vehicle contract hire, fleet management and rental company. He is now tasked with spearheading the firm’s next phase of growth and will be responsible for continued expansion of the firm’s skills, team, services and customer base.

C&C employs a 40-strong team and prides itself on delivering excellent customer service, regardless of the size of the job. It moved to its current 25,000sqft facility in 2008 – on the site of the former Seddon Atkinson truck manufacturing plant – and has steadily built an impressive and loyal client base. C&C is a preferred supplier to major insurance companies, national fleets and local operators.

Mark said, ‘At Fraikin I got to work closely with the team at C&C on a major project to refurbish and reconfigure more than 200 trailers for rental, which allowed me to see at first-hand the skills of the team and their commitment to delivering first class customer service.

‘When the opportunity arose to join the business, I was really excited and wanted to be a part of the firm’s continued growth and success. This is a specialist sector, and one in which C&C enjoys a first class reputation and is well positioned for expansion.’
