Fix Auto celebrates 30 Under 30 triumphs

Fix Auto UK is celebrating after six members of it network were named among bodyshop magazine’s prestigious 30 Under 30: Rising Stars initiative.

The Rising Stars initiative was created in 2017 to recognise and acknowledge inspirational individuals aged under 30 who have achieved something special within their sector.

Fix Auto UK’s managing director Ian Pugh said: “As a network, we instantly embraced the whole 30 Under 30: Rising Stars concept and have enjoyed continual success since its inception. To have one successful nomination is an achievement but to have six individuals representing various aspects of the repair industry listed as winners is unprecedented.”

The Fix Auto UK recipients are: Holly Crome, administrations manager at Fix Auto Redhill, Alex Lewis, senior VDA and assistant manager at Fix Auto Liverpool South, George Savin, apprentice panel technician, and Jaimie Wilson, site manager for Fix Auto Dagenham, Jessica Teale, bodyshop manager at Fix Auto Leeds South, and Grace Weddell, communications manager at Fix Auto UK.

Simon Wait, editor of bodyshop magazine, said: “Congratulations to all of this year’s fantastic winners. Once again, this is an impressive group of young people which we believe places the future of our industry in safe hands.”

Each 30 Under 30: Rising Stars winner will be presented with a trophy to acknowledge their achievement during the annual bodyshop magazine awards which will be held at the ICC in Wales on 17 December
