Impetus Automotive is opening new offices in Germany, Japan and China to support its growing portfolio of International and Global Clients. To manage this growth, the specialist Sales and Aftersales Automotive Consultancy has recently made changes to the Senior Management Team to strengthen global direction, whilst also maintaining its current client focus.
Impetus Automotive is seeing its international business expand strongly, and this is set to continue to be a major driver of growth for the business. To ensure a successful ramp-up in operations, David Gorvett has agreed to take on a new role for the company, as Managing Director of International Development. This role will start immediately to support the implementation of a recently won significant global project and the roll out of new offices.
To enable this move Julian Spooner, former Executive Chairman for Impetus Automotive, will step into the role of Chief Executive Officer where he will focus on ensuring continuity of service, as he explains: “We are entering a very exciting stage of growth for the company. Although this creates tremendous opportunities, we are mindful of the critical need to consider ways to maintain and improve the levels of service we offer our current clients. We feel this change of structure is the best way to support both objectives.
“David will be drawing on his extensive experience of developing the Impetus Automotive business in Europe, by leading the opening of new offices in China, Japan and Germany, alongside the development of global Client projects. Meanwhile the recently strengthened Senior Management Team of Impetus Automotive will support me in making an even greater contribution to our current clients’ businesses.”
Julian Spooner was Chairman of Impetus Automotive for two years before taking on the role of Executive Chairman six months ago and will be supported by his Senior Management team including David Harriman, Implementation Services Director, Andy Mills, Consultancy Services Director, plus the recent appointments of Andrew Stevens, Finance Director and Ashley Fernihough, Sales and Marketing Director.
