ADAS and diagnostic specialist gears up for further expansion

In a strategic move as it gears up for national expansion, A1 ADAS Solutions Group has announced the appointment of Kieran Eastwood as operations manager.

The group, which specialises in ADAS, mobile and remote diagnostics, and workshop equipment for bodyshops, is growing at pace. The new role will see Kieran managing the business’ processes whilst working closely with health, safety and compliance director, Helen Molloy, to uphold the group’s ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 14001:2015 accreditations.

Kieran, who has just relocated from Australia, brings extensive JLR knowledge with him as well as a wealth of operational experience having recently managed branches of Motorserve, a large chain of vehicle repair centres.

Iain Molloy, A1’s managing director said: “When we interviewed Kieran, I instantly knew he was the perfect fit for us. His mindset and approach to business fully aligns with A1’s ethos and values.

“To facilitate the growth of the group, we knew we needed someone in place to not only uphold the existing processes that work well, but to implement new ones as we expand.

“We’re known for being sticklers for delivering above and beyond what’s expected, so it’s imperative that our efficiency and quality of service doesn’t change as we grow. Operational procedures are at the heart of that.”

Kieran added: “The group’s plans for the next 12 months are really exciting. There couldn’t have been a better time to move back to the UK and join A1.

“It’s also proved to be a great opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of ADAS and diagnostics. Having just completed my IMI AOM230 accreditation, there’ll be plenty of opportunity to get hands on in the business too. This will be vital to truly understand what new processes might be needed and how they will impact the customer journey.”

The group, which has its headquarters in Norwich, is also recruiting for an area sales manager for the North of England and technicians to join its mobile ADAS and diagnostic van fleet throughout the UK.
