Goodyear Dunlop Tyres UK Limited has announced the appointment of Peter Tye as Retail Director, heading the company’s HiQ tyre and vehicle servicing network.
Peter has been a key part of the growth of HiQ’s service network in his previous role as Franchise Development Manager. Peter replaces Juergen Titz, who was appointed Director of Goodyear Dunlop’s Consumer tyre business unit last month.
Peter joined Goodyear Dunlop in 2006 when the company began the process of accelerating their network growth by relaunching and revitalising the HiQ brand, its service standards and franchise model.
Before joining Goodyear Dunlop, Peter had 14 years franchising experience, most notably on the Volkswagen Group brands including Audi and SEAT.
Peter commented: “Since the launch of our accelerated franchise programme, we have grown the HiQ network from 20 to 150 franchised stores, built a strong fleet support package and developed consistently high service standards across our network. The growth of our network, coupled with the increasing popularity of our unique HiQOnline.co.uk e-business service, puts HiQ in a strong position to build on our team’s recent successes”
Peter will report to George Rietbergen, Group Managing Director.
