Ex-RMI director Bob Hood quits SEL after just two months in job

Bob Hood has quit his position as director of marketing at SEL-Imperial, just months after joining the company from the RMI.

Hood told AM that his decision was made for “personal reasons” but adds that he does feel bad about leaving the company after such a short period of time.

“Kevin hired me to help take SEL into different part of the market and open some doors among insurers and the body repair community, which I am doing,” says Hood. “The revisions to block exemption mean that there is a great opportunity for non-OE parts providers like SEL to really grow their business.”

Kevin Shipton, managing director of SEL, thanked Hood for all his hard work, saying: “In the couple of months that he has been with SEL, he has provided us with a better insight into the market and how we should proceed.”

Rumours of Hood's departure first appeared on industry website ABP, forcing Shipton to issue a short but informal statement confirming the move. It read: “Bob has decided this role is not for him so he's going to take a bit of a break before deciding what to do next.” Hood quit his post as independent garage and bodyshop director at the RMI in June.
