Ben, the automotive industry charity, has appointed Peter Cottle as head of business development.
Cottle spent ten years in retail banking prior to over 30 in the automotive industry, where he specialised in retail and wholesale finance. He has championed the work of Ben throughout his career.
Commenting on Peter's appointment, chief executive David Main said; "Peter's role is absolutely vital for Ben in raising both funds and awareness for the work we do in the automotive industry. We want to create an industry where everybody in need of Ben's help and advice knows that we are there for them and we know that Peter will open doors for us and really spread the word. His understanding and affinity with the industry is second to none."
Cottle added; "The UK's automotive industry is fantastic and has managed to emerge stronger from so many challenges, thanks to the ability of its people to adapt and improve their skills. I am delighted to join the charity which supports those people and the industry I love."
