The Retail Motor Industry Federation has appointed Jason Moseley as executive director with the responsibility for the National Association of Bodyshops and the Vehicle Builders Repairers Association.
Moseley will attempt to implement new strategies that will introduce an improved set of innovative services to deliver membership growth, an RMI statement said.
He will also help facilitate relationships with industry stakeholders in the wake of the recent Competition and Markets Authority’s investigation into the private motor insurance market.
RMI Chairman Peter Johnson said: "We are delighted to have someone with Jason Moseley’s industry standing and background joining the RMI to represent vehicle bodyshops and body builders at this time.
“The sector’s two leading associations, NAB and VBRA, have recently joined forces to provide a unified voice for its members. With Jason’s leadership qualities and communications skills, these associations will now be able to accelerate their representation and market influence.”
Moseley added: “The UK vehicle body repair and bodybuilding industries are at the dawn of an exciting new era, and I look forward to driving increased value for our members, whilst working closely with the RMI Board, the two associations’ advisory committees and management teams to achieve our ambitious growth plans.”
