A1 ADAS names Kieran Eastwood as operations manager

A1 ADAS Solutions Group has announced the appointment of Kieran Eastwood as operations manager as its gears up for national expansion.

The group – which specialises in ADAS, mobile and remote diagnostics, and workshop equipment for bodyshops – is growing at pace. The new role will see Eastwood managing business processes while working closely with health, safety and compliance director, Helen Molloy, to uphold the group’s ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 14001:2015 accreditations.

Eastwood, who has just relocated from Australia, brings extensive JLR knowledge with him as well as a wealth of operational experience, having recently managed branches of Motorserve, a large chain of vehicle repair centres.

A1 ADAS names Kieran Eastwood

As A1 ADAS names Kieran Eastwood as its new operations manager, A1’s managing director Iain Molloy said:

“When we interviewed Kieran, I instantly knew he was the perfect fit for us. His mindset and approach to business fully aligns with A1’s ethos and values.

“To facilitate the growth of the group, we knew we needed someone in place to not only uphold the existing processes that work well, but to implement new ones as we expand. We’re known for being sticklers for delivering above and beyond what’s expected, so it’s imperative that our efficiency and quality of service doesn’t change as we grow. Operational procedures are at the heart of that.”

Big plans

Eastwood added:

“The group’s plans for the next 12 months are really exciting. There couldn’t have been a better time to move back to the UK and join A1. It’s also proved to be a great opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of ADAS and diagnostics. Having just completed my IMI AOM230 accreditation, there’ll be plenty of opportunity to get hands-on in the business, too. This will be vital to truly understand what new processes might be needed and how they will impact the customer journey.”

The Norwich-based group is also recruiting for an area sales manager for the north of England, as well as technicians to join its mobile ADAS and diagnostic van fleet throughout the UK. To find out more, visit A1 ADAS Solutions.
