Parts Distribution Partnership are delighted to announce that Jim Mazza will be joining the Group's management team with immediate effect as Vice Chairman. Working with the members he will assist in every aspect of the group's development.
Alastair Whatmore the PDP Group Chairman comments: "With consolidation in the market showing little signs of slowing down, we recognise the need to change, to grow and to develop a group that is well positioned to take advantage of the opportunities that undoubtedly exist for independent motor factors and their suppliers.
Jim has an impressive track record in the automotive aftermarket and brings to our group a wealth of experience and buying group knowledge which will undoubtedly help us to achieve our objectives.
I am pleased that Jim has demonstrated his commitment to PDP in agreeing an initial fixed term agreement of three years with the option to extend it at the end of the period and am looking forward to the progress we will make together".
Jim Mazza says "On a personal note I am glad that the weeks of speculation have come to an end and whilst somewhat bemused and flattered by the level of interest my return to the aftermarket has created, I am humbled by the levels of support I have received since first suggesting that I would like to get involved again".
Jim Mazza adds: "A decision to join the PDP team was not taken lightly and having spent some time looking at what PDP does and its hopes and aspirations, I came away convinced that the group presents exciting prospects to grow and develop initially for the benefit of the existing membership, but ultimately for those motor factors looking for a safe harbour in turbulent times.
PDP is undoubtedly a platform to build on and I am looking forward with relish to working with the group, its members and its supplier partners and helping PDP achieve its ambitious aims'.
