Former Hyundai Academy manager Jonathan Buckley has joined the learning and development agency RTS Group.
Buckley, who has spent the majority of his career in automotive training and events provision, has been appointed account director, with a brief to steer the expansion of RTS's events division.
“RTS Group has huge credibility and an excellent reputation for delivering training to the automotive retail network, and it will be my role to build on this and develop the events side of the business and the events team,” said Buckley.
“As I have worked for a manufacturer, I can bring a fresh perspective on what clients want and how to really support them when we deliver exciting and innovative product launches for their retail networks.”
Buckley has worked for agencies and for manufacturers, and has had two prior spells as an RTS Group associate when he was a freelance and instructional designer.
Malcolm Miller, managing director of RTS Group, said: “We are expanding our events side of the business, including product launches – such as the successful C-HR launch we delivered for Toyota – and it will be Jonathan’s task to build on this and to create a team around him to assist him.”
