The new addition comes hot on the heels of the arrival at Revive! of bodyshop expert Julie Eley as franchise manager.

His objective is to nurture strategic relationships with dealerships to deliver opportunities for Revive! technicians throughout the network. He will also be responsible for managing existing national account customers at Revive!
