BCA has strengthened its national auction network with a number of key appointments.

Stuart Beith, pictured, is promoted to the position of regional operations director (Scotland), and Eddie Thomson assumes the new role of sales director (Scotland and North East).

Beith will take responsibility for the operational activity at four auction centres in Edinburgh, Glasgow, Kinross and Livingston. The strengthened team offers specialist services covering dealer part-exchanges, LCVs, prestige vehicles, contract hire and motorcycles.

Eddie Thompson has over 25 years’ experience in remarketing and was national operations director at SMA.

Commenting on the move Simon Henstock, BCA’s chief operating officer for UK Remarketing, said: ‘Following the successful integration of the SMA business into the UK Auction Centre Network, we have strengthened the management team to support the growth of the UK remarketing division. Both Stuart and Eddie bring a wealth of experience and expertise to the business.’

The move also sees Simon Gent, regional operations director (North) take responsibility for Belle Vue, Brighouse, Leeds, Newcastle and Preston. Robin Wilde, regional operations director (Midlands), adds Perry Barr and Wolverhampton to his portfolio, along with Birmingham, Walsall, Measham, Derby, Nottingham, and Peterborough.
