MAHLE Aftermarket strengthens European operations with key promotion

Date: Friday 03 February 2023

MAHLE Aftermarket has promoted its UK General Manager Andy Lees within its senior leadership team, in a combined role that will see him lead aftermarket operations in western Europe.

While Lees’ responsibilities expand with his promotion to Head of Western Europe Aftermarket (MESW), he will remain in his role as UK general manager, overseeing relationships with valued customers across the country and guide the company’s UK aftermarket strategy.

Andy Lees, Head of Western Europe Aftermarket (MESW) at MAHLE Aftermarket, said:

“I’m delighted to be offered the opportunity to be the trusted advisor to customers across Europe, and spread the message of the high-end product offering supplied by MAHLE to the wider aftermarket across the continent.
“I’m equally pleased that the opportunity gives me the chance to continue working with the UK team and customers across the UK aftermarket. I’m excited to bring my wealth of automotive industry knowledge to a new customer base across Europe, and UK customers can rest assured of the seamless continuation of high-quality service we aim to deliver.”

With a background in sales and managerial roles within the automotive aftermarket, Lees will manage logistics, sales, customer service and administration activity throughout territories across western Europe.

Customers will also be familiar with MAHLE Aftermarket sales and marketing manager Jason Smith, who will continue to support Andy Lees in his new position.

Lees will also ensure the organisation is structured to deliver core business objectives and will work closely with the Group functions such as IT, finance, HR and purchasing to develop key strategies.

Murat Ince, Head of Sales EMEA (MES) at MAHLE Aftermarket, said:

“Andy is a fantastic asset to MAHLE and his ability to forge great relationships with customers, plus his deep knowledge of the automotive aftermarket, gives me great confidence he will be hugely successful in his new combined UK-Europe position.”
