New Head of Mobile Sales for Revive!

Mike Collyer Head of Mobile Sales

Mike Collyer has spent his whole career in the automotive industry. He has considerable expertise in all aspects of bodyshop management gained through running his own repair facility and working for major dealerships including the Sytner Group, Vertu Motors Plc and Pendragon Plc. Latterly he was responsible for the Toyota network of approved repairers in the Southern half of the UK.

Mike said:
"After years spent in big corporate environments I was ready for a change and a new challenge.
I like what I’ve seen and heard about Revive! I have a lot to bring to this role and believe I can make a big difference."

Commenting on the appointment, Revive! managing director Mark Llewellyn said:
"Our business success is all down to the quality of people we have working here. Finding and recruiting the best candidates is very important, and I’m delighted that Mike has chosen to bring his wealth of experience and knowledge to Revive!

He has an impressive pedigree and 'gets' what we are striving to achieve. Revive! is the only network of accredited repairers to offer a UK wide-coverage and the increasing volume of national account work we are seeing reflects this. Having technicians available at the right place at the right time is crucial to the success of our business and it’s vital that we manage our resources effectively to deliver the best possible coverage and service to both our trade and retail customers."

In his spare time Mike is an avid motorbike fan. When he ran his own bodyshop one of his contracts was with the UK importer of Ducati motorcycles and for many years he competed in the British Championships. He is married with two grown up children and live near Northampton.

Revive! Auto Innovations is a full member of the British Franchise Association and leads the way in smart repair, with the UK’s largest network of accredited repairers. They are looking for business orientated people to join their existing team of franchisees running highly profitable multi-van businesses operating in the minor vehicle repair sector.

Revive! franchise owners provide services on a mobile basis which allows them to keep overheads low, whilst offering a convenient service to customers, who include car dealerships, fleet and lease companies, insurance companies as well as the general public.
