Motor Codes has appointed former Chevrolet UK and Ireland director Mark Terry (pictured) as its interim managing director.
Terry has held senior positions in the UK and internationally. He has served on the Motor Codes' board since 2010 and joins Motor Codes to manage the business and identify new commercial opportunities as the organisation looks to recruit a permanent appointee.
Mike Hawes, Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders' chief executive and a Motor Codes' board member, said: "Mark has a first class reputation and a track record of delivering growth to businesses. His knowledge and experience of Motor Codes and the issues surrounding the sector from his time as a board member will be invaluable. Industry and consumers can expect him to bring vigour and strong leadership to Motor Codes during his tenure”.
Since graduating in Motor Vehicle Engineering from Bucks University in 1987 Terry has worked exclusively in the motor industry including roles with Saab GB and as GM's business development manager in Singapore. More recently he was Chevrolet’s director in the UK.
Terry said: “I’m excited and privileged to be leading an organisation that has championed consumer rights and brought clarity and an enhanced reputation to the motor industry.
"Since 2004 Motor Codes has developed into a highly respected and trusted organisation. I look forward to working with staff and, in partnership with the Trading Standards Institute and other stakeholders, ensure that Motor Codes continues to retain the full confidence of consumers and garages across the UK”.
