Core Diagnostics appoints Neil Hilton

Neil Hilton has been named as Technical Sales Director at Core Diagnostics, which is offering cloud-based solution for programming and coding of new parts, along with remote support for ADAS calibrations.

Neil joins Core Diagnostics from HELLA where he was for 13 years Head of Garage Equipment, a role that saw him help bring he Hella Gutmann brand into the UK. An expert on ADAS, in 2018 Neil took up a position on Thatcham Research’s ADAS steering group where he was part of the development of the Insurance Industry Requirements (IRR) for ADAS repair , introduced in 2021.

Commenting on his new role, Neil said: “With vehicle systems being ever-more sophisticated, ADAS calibration and coding and programming of new parts can be challenging at the best of times. In recent years we’ve seen remote diagnostics become an increasingly valuable workshop tool and I’m in no doubt that it’s the future. Core Diagnostics were among the first to recognise this and their unrivalled investment in systems and expertise has put them at the spearhead of this new technology. I’m excited to join the team and look forward to helping to make Core Diagnostics the number one brand in remote support.”

Core Diagnostics CEO Mark Fleming added: “I’m proud of the reputation that Core Diagnostics has already established in the market and as we look to scale the business I’m delighted that someone so knowledgeable about ADAS and highly-respected as Neil not only sees the potential for remote diagnostics, but shares our vision for the future and is excited to be part of this journey.”
