Fix Auto appoints Neil Reader

Fix Auto UK has strengthened its Regional Operations Team with the appointment of Neil Reader.

The 48-year-old completes the network’s field-based operations team that provides direct support to Fix Auto franchisees. The role became available following a recent re-shuffle within the network’s management team that has seen predecessor Andy Higgs move into Fix Auto UK’s newly formed Compliance and Audit team.

Spanning franchisees in the North of England, Neil’s remit encompasses Fix Auto Newcastle and Fix Auto Durham in the North East and Fix Auto Carlisle on the borders. Known as Region two, it also includes all the Fix Auto centres in the North West and Yorkshire.

Commenting on the appointment, Fix Auto UK’s head of operations Michael McLaren, said, ‘Neil is a highly driven guy who brings a wealth of industry experience to our business. I am sure his knowledge, drive and commitment will provide additional strength to the fine work already carried out by our talented team.’

Neil added, ‘Being part of the Fix Auto UK network is a fresh challenge and one I am hugely excited about.  I’ve worked in a variety of roles in bodyshops ever since leaving school, but I have long wanted to take on a regional role so this is going to be a fresh and exciting chapter for me.’
