SsangYong Motor UK has appointed Doug Lincoln as aftersales director as it looks to support its expanding dealer network.
A fellow of The Institute of the Motor Industry (IMI), Lincoln has worked with SsangYong in various capacities previously and was previously European technical assistance engineer for Chevrolet UK Ltd, and an area service manager with the RAC.
For the past five years he has been running his own service business.
Paul Williams, CEO of SsangYong Motor UK, said: “I am delighted to welcome Doug back to the brand at this very important stage. His technical knowledge of SsangYong cars is second to none.”
The move follows the brand’s best performance last year, when sales increased by 117% and made SsangYong the second fastest growing new car franchise in the United Kingdom for 2015.
Williams added: “After a couple of years developing our sales base, we are working to enhance the aftersales experience for our growing number of customers, and Doug will also head-up the team tasked with improving the technical service and parts business for our expanding dealer network.”
