International Applications (IAL) has made two ‘significant’ appointments as the Oxfordshire-based paints, coatings and consumables supplier continues to strengthen its management team.

Scott Way joins the business as head of procurement and commercial development and will be responsible for the IAL product portfolio, supplier relationships and new product development.

Scott comes to IAL from LKQ Coatings, where as senior product manager he directed key supplier accounts and managed the private label portfolio and other strategic projects and initiatives. He has 25 years’ experience in the automotive refinish industry, having previously worked for JCA Coatings and Avon Auto Colours.

Working alongside Scott is Simon Green who has been appointed as sales channel manager. Simon also comes from LKQ Coatings where he spent the last three years as area manager for the south west. Simon has 30 years’ experience in aftermarket distribution and during his career has worked for Brown Brothers and Andrew Page Group. Simon will be responsible for business development across IAL’s refinish and automotive and industrial divisions, and will lead the business development team.

Keith Parvin, IAL’s sales and marketing director, said, ‘Over recent months we have made a number of very significant appointments. These latest additions to the management team strengthen the business further and signify our commitment to providing outstanding service to our customers.’
