Among them is REPXPERT ambassador Andy Savva, ‘The Garage Inspector’. Also featured is Matt Cleevely, EV specialist and founder of Cleevely Group.

Emphasising the importance of informed decision-making, Tim Benson of Oldfields Garage will draw upon his years of industry experience and successful growth of his family-owned garage.

Matt Wiseman, of Wiseman Motor Services, brings to the table his journey from humble beginnings fixing tractors to establishing a successful automotive service business, highlighting the importance of providing exceptional customer service.

Completing the panel is Dean Lomas of DC Lomas, whose journey from a mobile business to a highly respected Cheshire workshop showcases his passion and dedication to success and commitment to mentoring apprentices.

“This diverse line-up of panellists promises to deliver a thought-provoking discussion,” said Matthew Selby, sales and marketing director at Schaeffler Automotive Aftermarket (UK).
