Wrightbus has announced changes to its senior management team structure. The move is in response to ‘vehicle population increase and the expansion and evolution of the business’. Damian McGarry, who most recently has led Wrightbus International, will take over the helm of the Customcare after sales division. Ian Downie will consequently relinquish responsibility for Customcare and will focus on sales and marketing for Wrightbus in the UK and Europe.
Chairman and CEO for the Wrights Group, Mark Nodder OBE, said, ‘With the increase in the vehicle population of both our bodied and complete buses, we felt the time was right to further focus on our Customcare operations. The appointment of Damian to lead this division will give Ian Downie the time and space to expand our market share in the UK and Europe. Ian has made a significant contribution to both our sales and the Customcare divisions since he joined us two years ago but now, with our business continually expanding and evolving, we require an even more dedicated focus for these areas and he will undoubtedly relish the opportunity to spearhead a period of strong sales growth for us. In addition, Damian brings extensive experience of all aspects of the Wrightbus business both at home and internationally to his new role with Customcare, which will enable him to drive the business forward in ways which bring real value to our customers.’
