Armitage has been acting managing director since January 2016 and brings 27 years’ experience as a director of the investment banking group Shore Capital, where he was responsible for large customer relationships and trading in global markets.

Already this year, he has been instrumental in bringing about several key operational changes, including the introduction of Area Deployment Centres and a new Fitting Hub network.

“Auto Windscreens saw a huge amount of change in 2015, which presented a number of challenges moving into 2016,” Armitage commented. “We have been carefully reviewing how we operate and are now in a stronger position than ever to best serve our partners and customers.”

He added: “The last nine months have been exciting and the team here are fantastic, being key to Auto Windscreens’ success. I’m delighted to be appointed to the role of managing director officially and am eager to see where we can take Auto Windscreens in 2017 and beyond.”
