Britcom has announced the promotion of two long standing members of staff to Associate Director positions.
Britcom is a very successful company with an excellent reputation for supplying good quality commercial vehicles in both export and UK markets, as well as operating a vehicle engineering and bodyshop business. Throughout the significant growth over the years, it has retained the core values and principles of a family owned business. It is also a company that is prepared to invest in the development of its employees and recognises and rewards hard work and commitment, as evidenced by these latest two promotions.
Brent Carmichael (pictured left) is promoted to Associate Director (Engineering).
Brent started with Britcom in 1992 as Workshop Manager when Britcom acquired the chassis engineering company he was working for at the time. As Britcom grew and moved to new premises in Market Weighton in 2006, he became Engineering Manager
Brent said “My latest promotion to the position of Associate Director (Engineering) will allow me to concentrate on developing the Engineering side of the business, working with old and new customers alike, forging relationships with key stakeholders and ensure Britcom is set to cope with the legislative demands in a rapidly evolving industry. Our late Chairman’s saying was ‘it’s hard work at Britcom, but it’s got to be fun’; I could not agree more and look forward to the challenges ahead.”
Adam Day (pictured right) is promoted to Associate Director (Sales).
Adam joined Britcom in 2005 as Business Development Executive, predominantly focused on procurement. Much of his time was spent on the road, building relationships with suppliers of used trucks & trailers, including franchise dealers, finance and leasing companies and large fleet operators.
Subsequently, the decision was made to expand the used vehicle sales operation in the UK and Adam’s experience naturally led to him heading up the department as UK Sales Manager, including the establishment of a second depot in Manchester.
Adam commented “I enjoy the day to day challenges that working in this industry brings and the interesting (and eccentric !) characters that I deal with day to day; it’s safe to say that no day is every the same. The promotion to Associate Director (Sales) will allow me to contribute to the strategic direction of the business which is a challenge that I am very much looking forward to.”
Chris Urwin, Joint Managing Director said “These promotions are well-deserved for two loyal and committed employees who have already contributed a great deal to Britcom’s success over recent years. They have earned the right to take the next step and assist the existing directors in charting a course for the company in the next decade and beyond”.
