Aftercare Response has made a key appointment as it pursues an growth strategy which envisages a doubling of turnover in five years. Dean Miller becomes the service provider’s first Head of Sales Development.
Dean brings an extensive track record to his new role and has hit the ground running, winning accounts from competitors and opening doors to other, high-profile operators.
Aftercare Response maintains and repairs commercial vehicle bodies and ancillaries. Its 50 field-based engineers provide commercial vehicle operators nationwide with planned and emergency support covering bodywork of all kinds, as well as equipment such as cranes, tail-lifts and roller shutter doors.
Dean began his commercial vehicle industry career in 2001, with GE Capital TLS. He went on to work for Ryder as a business development manager, before moving into a similar role with BNP Paribas Rental Solutions – both companies are established customers of the Bevan Group.
Dean recalls: “I’ve known and worked with Bevan Group Managing Director Anthony Bevan since I joined Ryder in 2006, and have also supplied Simon with vans for operation on the Aftercare Response fleet.
“I have always taken pride in my attention to detail, and determination to ensure that the implementation of new vehicles or a new service goes as smoothly as possible for my customers. This commitment clearly impressed them sufficiently to make me an offer.”
