GT Automotive are excited to announce a new addition to our growing team. Simon Baker is now heading the Sales and Business Development of GT Automotive. Simon will be charged with building upon existing relationships with key Aftermarket customers, whilst also pursuing new companies interested in becoming Aftermarket partners with GT Automotive. Having recently established a partnership with A1 Motor Stores, Simon will be making a personal visit to all members to establish our brand in the stores; so if you are an A1 member, please give Simon a warm welcome!
Simon Baker has a very strong track record in the Automotive trade, which is why GT Automotive are excited to welcome him on board, as we continue to go from strength to strength in the Aftermarket. From being a Senior technician for Subaru World Rally Team and a Diagnostic technician for Ricardo; to Branch Manager at Euro Car Parts and Allparts Automotive Ltd, Simon has an impressive array of skills to help GT Automotive take the next steps in becoming a renowned Aftermarket Brand.
GT Automotive is an aftermarket brand built on the back of years of OE manufacturing in engine components; this formed the company policy of bringing competitively priced OE quality products to the UK aftermarket; most recently releasing a fantastic range of crankshaft pulleys covering the UK car parc. Simon’s recent Aftermarket experience makes him perfect to lead the sales on this product range.
With our own manufacturing experience and knowledge of producing OE quality parts for the UK market, GT Automotive has also partnered with several key OE manufacturers to expand our range of select, quality products; including Maysan Mando shock absorbers; which will be released in September 2018. One of Simon’s primary objectives will be to marry our current customer base and prospective business partners, with this exciting new product venture for the UK market.
Commercial Director, Oliver Croxson, says “On behalf of GT Automotive I would like to welcome Simon to our unique, dynamic team. Having the opportunity to bring in someone of Simon’s calibre is a great sign that, as an Aftermarket brand, we are moving in the right direction towards achieving our goal of being an established brand in the UK and European Aftermarket. We are excited to get going with Simon and help him to achieve his first goal- making GT Automotive the number 1 brand for Aftermarket Crankshaft Pulleys!”
