Vindis Group has welcomed Jack Lankester-Bell to its senior management team as he is promoted to head of trade parts specialists (TPS) and Ducati.
The promotion of Lankester-Bell (pictured), who has been with the Vindis Group since 2012, is the result of significant growth for TPS, including a brand-new TPS National call centre in Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire and an opportunity opening up at Ducati.
Lankester-Bell said: “It’s a really exciting opportunity for me personally as I get to delve into the motorbike sector, as well as continuing to pioneer our TPS offering.
“I look forward to continuing working and learning from the passionate individuals at Vindis Group, driving my team forwards to deliver the best and most efficient service for our customers and accelerating growth in 2019 and beyond.”
Formerly Head of Business for Vindis TPS, Lankester-Bell’s new role will see him taking on responsibility for the management, profitability, compliance and smooth running of both Vindis Ducati stores based in Cambridge and Peterborough, the National Call Centre and both Vindis TPS centres in Cambridge and Bishop’s Stortford.
He will have four people reporting directly to him, as well as overseeing a team of over 60 people.
Vindis Group’s managing director, Jamie Vindis, said: “Jack has considerable passion and experience in working with our dealerships, so this role felt like the natural next step – especially with his love for motorcycles.
"I am confident his enviable knowledge will ensure we continue to deliver fantastic customer service across our brands, so I hope you will all join me in congratulating Jack on his worthy promotion.”
