Mike Thompson, Nissan Motor (GB)’s former aftersales director, has become a director of Bluegrasscoms, the UK agency specializing in maximising genuine parts sales for OEMs.
Chief executive Stuart Bartlett said: “As our clients learn to trust us and see how we deliver time and time again in driving revenue growth, they have started asking for more help.
“Mike (pictured) has the experience of service and process as well as the insight into working in an OEM, so is ideally placed to help us grow into these new areas whilst being able to fully understand what the OEM needs to achieve.”
Bluegrasscoms has a forecast revenue of £10 million this financial year. It represents 75% of all OEMs based on marketshare, plus it runs the trade programmes for many OEM clients including the Vauxhall Trade club and Nissan Trade Direct.
Thompson was Nissan's aftersales director for two years. Before that he was its network strategy director.
> Bluegrasscoms will be at Automotive Management Live on November 9, with its new parts game ‘Game of Parts’ based on the Game of Thrones TV series.
