FIX AUTO UK APPOINT ROB PUGH TO HEAD UP OWNED SITES DIVISION
Fix Auto UK has appointed Rob Pugh to head up its division of owned repair centres.
Reporting directly into shareholders, the 25-year-old takes up the position of Head of Commercial for Fix Auto UK (Owned Sites) with immediate effect, overseeing the eight existing Fix Auto UK-owned sites and any new additions going forward.
Rob, a recipient of the Bodyshop Magazine 30 Under 30 Award in 2020 presented in recognition for his sterling work in supporting Fix Auto UK Franchise Partners particularly during the pandemic, was seconded into the management team tasked with running the owned sites division in March this year, primarily to assist Nigel Luffman as he battled ill health. Nigel lost his battle with cancer and sadly passed away over the August Bank Holiday weekend.
Grace Weddell has stepped up to be the network’s Communications Manager, overseeing the area of the business previously managed by Rob.
Commenting on his new role, Rob said: “I’m delighted to be given an incredible opportunity. There is a huge amount of potential surrounding our existing centres and, with life getting back to some kind of normality, we are in a prime position to unlock that potential and continue our development programme initially instigated by Nigel.”
Ian Pugh, Managing Director of Fix Auto UK, said: “Rob has surpassed all expectations and really has stepped up to the mark and delivered on every task we’ve asked of him. He has brought a refreshing and exciting new outlook to business management and this appointment is a reflection of that.”
