Management changes at LKQ Collision & Coatings

Justin Elliot

LKQ Collision & Coatings has announced a number of senior appointments, mainly of individuals being promoted from LKQ Euro Car Parts.

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. He was previously Coatings and Collision Director at ECP.

Elliot’s promotion is the latest move in an Europe-wide programme of integration at LKQ, known as ‘One LKQ’, designed to increase its buying power and ability to collaborate with suppliers and to deliver a better customer experience.

Elliot commented: “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.”
