Commercial vehicle group Sherwood Truck and Van has appointed Kevin Brown as parts representative based at the company’s East Midlands HQ in South Normanton, Derbyshire.

As well as providing the quickest response possible when replacement parts are needed, he aims to develop new business and maintain relationships with existing customers.

The 39-year-old has 18 years of experience in the motor parts trade and was previously parts sales manager for a Midlands-based truck and bus dealer.

He will be responsible for supplying parts to the Derbyshire area.

Sherwood Truck and Van, now part of West Bromwich-based Guest Trucks, runs a 24-hour service with the capability to supply more than 15,000 parts to its dealership network.

The team can cater for a full range of vehicle makes and is currently running an Iveco Parts Price Challenge, promising to beat like-for-like prices.

Kevin, who lives in Swadlincote, South Derbyshire, with his wife Sarah and three children, said: “As well as offering the best prices, it is important that we are able to react as soon as parts are required.

“My mobile phone is always on and we’re ready to respond to our clients’ needs.”

In his spare time he grows vegetables and keeps chickens at his allotment. He says he also “tries” to play golf.

Regional director responsible for the four Sherwood locations, Helen Waterfall, said: “It’s great to welcome Kevin to Sherwood Truck and Van.

“Keeping our customers happy and reacting when spares and new parts are needed is a crucial job in a competitive field.

“Promoting sales and marketing campaigns like our summer offers on original Iveco brake and clutch parts will be a key part of Kevin’s role as we strive to provide the best service possible.”

Guest Trucks is one of the UK’s largest independently owned commercial vehicle dealers and the single largest Iveco distributor.

The group now covers an area that includes the West Midlands, North Wales, Cambridgeshire, Leicestershire, Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire, Staffordshire and South Yorkshire, and Norfolk.

Its network includes 12 full service Iveco dealerships, supported by local agreements with an additional eight authorised Iveco repairers.

Sherwood is a leading supplier of new and used commercial vehicles, established in 1978. The company also maintains, services and repairs commercial vehicles across Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire, South Yorkshire, Staffordshire and most of Cheshire.
