Car & Commercial Vehicle Services appoints new operations director

Mark Newnes, C&C

Oldham-based Car & Commercial Vehicle Services (C&C) has appointed Mark Newnes as operations director as part of its growth plans.

Newnes joins the accident repair specialist after more than 12 years at Fraikin, Europe’s largest commercial vehicle contract hire, fleet management and rental company – where he held the title of operations director, responsible for a fleet of more than 10,000 vehicles, 10 branches and co-ordinating a national network of authorised third-party workshops.

Prior to Fraikin, Newnes spent 11 years as general operations manager of Healthcare Logistics, now Movianto, before which he was the transport and operations manager at Allied Carpets from 1990 to 1992.

He aims to use this experience to ensure the continued growth of C&C, which offers a range of services from minor body and panel repairs on cars, vans, trucks, trailers, buses and coaches, to chassis re-alignment and accident rebuilds, as well as bodybuilding and fleet refurbishment.
