AUTOMOTIVE group Hendy has strengthened its management team with the appointment of Tim Ward as group finance and insurance manager.
He has joined the company from his role as national sales manager for Jaguar Financial Services and with more than 20 years’ experience of working in the finance industry.
Hendy commercial director Mark Busby said he was delighted to welcome Ward to the team, adding that his finance and business development expertise would help the company continue its growth plans.
‘Having a strong team is key to the success of Hendy, whether that is in the dealerships or working at group level, and I have no doubt that Tim will play an important role in our future.
‘His background in finance and his work at Jaguar Financial Services give Tim valuable experience to help us maximise performance in all areas of the business.’
Ward, pictured, said: ‘I have dealt with the group since I joined the industry in 1997 and have always admired the way in which it has grown, looks after staff and has a total commitment to customer satisfaction.
‘I have watched the group expand and go from strength to strength, so I was delighted to be offered this role and look forward to being involved in the future of Hendy.’
As part of the Hendy senior management team, he will be involved in helping all areas of the business maximise opportunities, and has joined at an exciting time for the company. Following the takeover of Lifestyle Group last year, Hendy has announced investment plans for new and upgraded facilities throughout the group from Devon to Hampshire, Sussex, Surrey and Kent.
