The Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT) is pleased to announce the appointment of Wendy Williamson as Aftermarket Development Manager. Wendy brings a wealth of experience in the aftermarket sector and will take control of SMMT activities from the end of the year when SMMT's current aftermarket expert, Bob Davis, retires.

Prior to joining SMMT, Wendy spent many years working both in the commercial vehicle and automotive sectors at Unipart. Her relationship with key stakeholders and knowledge of topical issues will prove invaluable as SMMT builds-on and develops its aftermarket activities.

Commenting on SMMT’s new appointment, Chief Executive Paul Everitt said, “The aftermarket sector is one of UK automotive's most diverse and dynamic business areas, so Wendy's experience and passion for the industry will be invaluable to SMMT's support for its aftermarket members.”

Wendy replaces Bob Davis who retires after more 27 years in the industry with SMMT. During his time with SMMT, he was a board member of FIGIEFA, the international body for automotive aftermarket distributers, was influential in the 'Right to Repair' campaign and has recently been instrumental in the progress towards digital radio rollout across the sector.
