The Retail Motor Industry Federation (RMI) has announced the resignation of Graham Threlfall as head of the National Association of Bodyshops (NAB).
Commenting on the announcement, Threlfall said: “I have very much enjoyed my time as head of NAB and having played a lead role in the launch of NAB as an independent association under the RMI umbrella. I look forward to seeing the benefits of the wider initiatives NAB are launching soon.
He continued: “Over the past two years the NAB have ensured that our membership services have been developed to provide repairers with tangible solutions which reduce their operating costs. With such tight and eroding margins it is critical a repairer gains every commercial advantage they can get.
“Although I will no longer be part of the NAB team I very much look forward to working with them in my new role on external projects that will strengthen the position of Bodyshops throughout the UK.”
Stuart James, RMI director said: “It has been great working with Graham over the last few years, his hard work and commitment to the Bodyshop division has been commendable.
"His efforts within the Bodyshop sector have influenced the strength and position of the sector as a whole and I genuinely wish him well in his new role.”
