Kevin will join FAI Automotive as Commercial Director, covering both UK and export customers. This appointment will ensure the continued support and company progression following Jonathan Alexander’s decision to leave the business.

Many reading this announcement will recognise the name Kevin Neaverson, as his 30-year Aftermarket career has seen him fulfil pivotal roles in long-standing enterprises.

With significant commercial experience, covering a wealth of territories, Kevin is invested in diversifying the products offered by FAI and looking to broaden the markets FAI products are distributed in.

Neaverson said: ‘It’s an honour to join the FAI team in what is an exciting time for a well-established brand within our industry. My mission is to cement the relationships of our loyal customer base and pave the way for new business, fuelled by range expansion plans already set in motion by our procurement team.

“I wish Jonathan all the best for the future and look to build upon the foundations laid over the last 20 years. FAI has a rich heritage with over 40 years of experience that many UK customers are aware of, but I intend to spread that message to new regions.”

He continues: “A large part of my new role will involve travelling to meet clients, as I have done since the first days of my career. I believe that the customer’s voice is of utmost importance, as is the element of face-to-face discussions. Therefore, I look forward to meeting many faces, both old and new, over the coming months.’

Having held similar positions at Blue Print and most recently at First Line, Kevin intends to ‘hit the ground running’ in this new leg of his career.
