Michelin Tyre has appointed a new customer engineering support team manager for the UK and Republic of Ireland to support truck and bus customers.

Carl Williams will lead a team of experienced technical managers working across all product lines and will take over from Rob Blurton, who is set to retire from Michelin at the end of September after 44 years.

Williams, a veteran of 36 years with Michelin, moves into the role after nearly three years as a Beyond Road regional sales manager.

He joined Michelin in 1987 on a youth training scheme apprenticeship, progessing to roles as regional fleet account manager, external training instructor and training centre manager.

Commenting on his new role Williams said: “I’m looking forward to the challenge ahead, and the opportunity to work with our technical managers across all areas of the business, from two-wheel and four-wheel B2C, to our on-road and off-road B2B fleets. In many ways, this is my dream job within Michelin. I get to support all product lines, lead a fantastic team, and put my three and a half decades of experience with the company to best use.”
