Senior appointments at LKQ Collision & Coatings to bring benefits for customers

LKQ Collision & Coatings has announced a raft of senior appointments that will strengthen its relationships with LKQ Euro Car Parts and LKQ Europe, and enhance the products and solutions it offers.

Justin Elliot

Justin Elliot is now heading up LKQ’s Collision & Coatings business across the whole of Europe, a role in which he will oversee the strategy of the UK and Ireland division.

Elliot’s promotion is the latest move in a Europe-wide programme of integration at LKQ, designed to increase its buying power and ability to collaborate with suppliers, while encouraging the sharing of best practice – ultimately, to deliver a better customer experience.

Elliot commented: “We’re proud of everything we’ve achieved over the last few years in the UK and Ireland, and I look forward to being a part of this exciting new chapter.

“Strengthening the relationship between our UK and European businesses means that together with our customers, we’re in the strongest possible position to navigate the months and years to come.

“The UK business now has an even more robust supply chain, and access to more expertise than ever, that we will leverage to the full benefit of our customers.”

Andy Southby has been appointed Managing Director of LKQ Collision & Coatings in the UK and Ireland, working closely with Elliot. Southby has a solid automotive background, covering automotive retail, dealership management and parts supply, most recently as a Divisional Director for LKQ Euro Car Parts.

Industry veteran Mike Davis will take up the position of Sales Director, bringing with him over 35 years of experience across the automotive supply chain. Mike will be working on the LKQ Collision & Coatings UK and Ireland management team alongside others including Mark Leeming, who will continue to lead the business’s insurance and work provider offerings.

Elliot continued: “The UK and Ireland management team is home to some of the collision and coatings industry’s biggest names, who hold customer relationships spanning decades.

“Andy is already proving to be a fantastic leader for the team, bringing a wealth of automotive expertise and a fresh perspective. This will be invaluable as we work closely with our customers to introduce more service solutions alongside our market-leading product range, strengthening our position as the market’s only total supply solution.”
