Eastwood to help drive A1 ADAS Solutions growth

Kieran Eastwood has been appointed operations manager for A1 ADAS Solutions Group as the company gears up for national expansion.

Eastwood is responsible for managing the business’ processes and working closely with health, safety and compliance director, Helen Molloy, to uphold the group’s ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 14001:2015 accreditations.

The appointment follows Eastwood’s relocation from Australia. A1 said he has extensive JLR knowledge and a wealth of operational experience, having recently managed branches of the vehicle repair centre chain Motorserve.

The group, which specialises in ADAS, mobile and remote diagnostics, and garage equipment, is growing at pace.

Managing director Iain Molloy said Eastwood is a perfect fit for the business. 

“To facilitate the growth of the group, we knew we needed someone in place to not only uphold the existing processes that work well, but to implement new ones as we expand.”

Eastwood said: “The group’s plans for the next 12 months are really exciting. There couldn’t have been a better time to move back to the UK and join A1.

“Having just completed my IMI AOM230 accreditation, there’ll be plenty of opportunity to get hands on in the business too. This will be vital to truly understand what new processes might be needed and how they will impact the customer journey.”

A1, which has its headquarters in Norwich, is also recruiting for an area sales manager for the north of England and technicians to join its mobile ADAS and diagnostic van fleet throughout the UK.
