Roadside Assist, Battery Wizards and Tyres
Roadside Assist & Battery Wizards
In recent news from these departments, Roadside Assist & Battery Wizards are about to add another mobile callout van to their fleet, making a total of 10 vans. They have also completed a new tender for a major insurance company to provide roadside assistance, commencing February 2021 - they are looking good so far, being one of the final two candidates of the selection process.
In staffing updates - the team has grown to include Ryan Lester-Smith who joined about 18 months ago as Logistics and Sales Manager and since then has streamlined that operational side of the business. Congratulations are in order for Neil Lester-Smith and Bernard Robinson who both celebrated 19 years with JHG on November on 1st 2020. Both joined the Group when they were 20 years old, apparently!
Roadside Assist and Battery Wizards have been very busy over the past few months. The COVID-19 months of March, April and May were actually record months for these departments with less cars on the road and many people working from home.
John Hughes Group recently purchased the business Tyres Your Way. This has bolstered our fleet of mobile vans fitting tyres and increased our customer base. We now have two dedicated mobile vans for tyre fitment around the Perth Metro area and this part of the business is growing.
Renato (Reno) joined the team in February this year after over 10 years at Bob Jane, and has been a valuable addition in his role as Sales Team Manager. Alex Marlowe and George Rayner have both qualified for Long Service Leave, with George onto his second round. Thank you for your continued service to the Group.
Jessica Rankin has recently returned to the Customer Service Desk after 12 months Maternity Leave.
Other parts of the John Hughes Group continue to support the Tyre Department, in particular promotion through fleet sales and the service departments. It is a team effort - thank you to these departments for their support.
