Smart Repairs has appointed Kaylie Skitt as senior financial controller to support further expansion through the UK.

She joins the Leeds-based smart repairer from Pendragon, where she was leader of the finance team for Mercedes, Porsche and Aston Martin.

Darryl Short, managing director of Smart Repairs, said: “As we continue to grow as a business, it’s right we also strengthen our leadership team to ensure that we provide the best service levels to our customers.

“Kaylie’s wide experience in the automotive sector made her the perfect person to support us going into 2024. Her ability to understand the specific needs of our customers and bring the support our existing management team require made her our number one candidate.

“We now feel ready to take on the challenges for continued expansion next year and going forward from there. Stability and long-term commitment within our leadership team is key to delivering this growth.”

Skitt said: “The rate at which this company is growing is phenomenal and I am proud to be joining a friendly, hard-working and successful team. Smart Repairs has established itself as a major force within the cosmetic repair industry across the UK and I look forward to playing an important role in maintaining and increasing this growth.”
