LKQ Bodyshop Division appoints new director

LKQ Bodyshop Division has named Jodie Mullard as its new channel and technical director.

She moves to the post after 18 months as head of channel, before which she was director of digital customer experience at LKQ Europe.

In her new role, she will support and contribute to the LKQ Bodyshop Division’s strategic vision, overseeing the development, implementation and execution of new solutions that align to its customer propositions and the wider LKQ UK & Ireland plan.

She said: “Our business achieved a huge amount last year thanks to the commitment, skills, passion and expertise of all of our colleagues, who go above and beyond to be there for customers as their supportive partner in a changing world.

“We’ve come into 2024 with real momentum – voted by repairers as their Paint Distributor of the Year – and I’m looking forward to working with the team to keep leveraging our brilliance and difference to help customers of all sizes unlock sustainable and profitable growth.”

Chris O’Rourke, managing director of LKQ Bodyshop Division, said: “Jodie has been instrumental in the achievements of our bodyshop business in recent years, developing and implementing a strategy and long-term proposition designed around what bodyshops want and need – underpinned by the guiding principles of our Customer Promise.”
