Auto Windscreens announces new managing director

Auto Windscreens operations director James MacBeth is to assume the role of managing director as Rupert Armitage steps down. 

James MacBeth, managing director at Auto Windscreens

MacBeth brings nearly 30 years’ experience at Auto Windscreens, starting as a trainee technician in 1992 and progressing to fitting centre manager. He took up the position of regional manager in 2013, two years after the business was acquired by Markerstudy Group and promoted to operations director in 2016.

Kevin Spencer, CEO of Markerstudy Group, commented: “James is familiar with every detail of the Auto Windscreens’ operation. With hands-on experience, industry knowledge that is second-to-none, and a desire to embrace new technology, he’s the ideal candidate to take over from Rupert and drive Auto Windscreens into the next chapter.”

MacBeth added: “Having been on my own journey with Auto Windscreens, this appointment is a culmination of many dedicated years, and I couldn’t be more delighted. The industry continues to captivate me as vehicle technology becomes ever more complex. Our strategic goal is always to achieve total customer satisfaction, but the challenge I relish is to ensure we remain at the forefront of innovation, training and service excellence.”
