Keltruck’s former used vehicle sales manager and industry veteran Phil Holmes, has resumed his role at the firm after a decade working for Scania and elsewhere in the commercial vehicle sector.

Holmes first joined Scania distributor East Midland Commercials as used vehicle sales executive in October 1994, and was promoted to used vehicle sales director in June 2001.

He became used sales manager at the Burton and Trent depot after the 2004 Keltruck takeover of EMC, and assumed the same role at the company’s West Bromwich site in 2008.

Holmes moved to Scania GB as asset purchasing manager in October 2010, then joined ATE Truck & Trailer Sales – now Asset Alliance Group – in July 2013.

“It’s great to be rejoining Keltruck Scania, which has always felt like home for me,” said Holmes, “with my daughter also being a long-standing employee of the company and so many families also working within the company it certainly is a family affair.

“I’m looking forward to helping Keltruck boost our domestic Scania used sales and also contributing to the growing global exports operation, which has really stepped up several notches in the past decade, including a dedicated container loading bay at West Bromwich head office.”

Keltruck sales director David Morgan, added: “I’m delighted to welcome Phil back to Keltruck Scania after a decade away from the fold. His achievements during that time have been hugely impressive with a very large volume of vehicles both acquired and disposed of for his employers, so I’m particularly pleased that Phil has agreed to return his firepower to us.”
