Unipart Automotive has named a new CEO.
Mark Dixon, formerly of Wyko and Eriks UK will join the company as CEO as of September. Dixonâ€™s appointment will coincide with Unipart Automotiveâ€™s head office move to Bicester from its current location in Cowley.
Previously, Dixon was responsible for a B2B branch network within the UK, managing 200 branches, over 2000 employees and a turnover of some Â£300 million.
A statement from Unipart Automotive confirms that Dixon will: â€œassume responsibility for the management team and the companyâ€™s vision for the future.â€
H2 Equity Partners has confirmed it will continue its involvement in the business. Patrick Kalverboer will remain as Chairman after he hands over the reigns to Dixon.
Kalverboer commented: â€œMarkâ€™s exceptional record in multiple site distribution operations and his strategic pedigree will ensure Unipart Automotive remains at the forefront of the UKâ€™s automotive car parts industry.
â€œBy aligning his appointment with the move to Bicester, he and the management team will be able to drive the business forward at an exciting time for the company.â€
