New used board member at TruckEast

Suffolk-based Scania dealer group TruckEast has appointed Shane Wareing as used sales director, which sees him join its board. 

He has been responsible for the retailer’s used division since joining the organisation in 2010, subsequently increasing the department’s business by an average of 60%.  

“TruckEast has a fantastic reputation and has always had a family feel to it – something that attracted me in the first place,” said Wareing, “I am humbled to have achieved this level in my career and delighted that the hard graft has paid off.”

The group has made a series of other changes to its board, including Harley Coulson’s move to sales and operations director and Martyn Clipston to group aftersales director for all branches except Wellingborough, which continues to be run by director Graham Broughton. All of the changes are effective from 1 January.

New Peterborough dealer for Isuzu

Isuzu has appointed Manchetts Peterborough a full sales, service and parts dealer, replacing the former dealer Motus Commercials.

Located in the city’s Fengate industrial area, the site has a seven-bay workshop which includes ATF facilities and a tachograph Centre, 15 technicians including three Isuzu Master technicians, parts staff and an Isuzu Care (service programme) specialist.

“With Manchetts taking on the existing dealer site in Fengate, Peterborough from Motus, as well as their experienced, fully trained staff, this ensures the continuity of service for existing Isuzu customers, whilst giving Manchetts an excellent platform to expand the Isuzu vehicle parc in this busy part of Eastern England,” said Isuzu’s UK head of sales Richard Waterworth.
