Commercial vehicle specialist Britcom has appointed Brent Carmichael and Adam Day to the role of Associate Director.

Brent is promoted to Associate Director (Engineering), and Adam is Associate Director (Sales)

Brent started with Britcom in 1992 as Workshop Manager when Britcom acquired the chassis engineering company he was working for at the time. As Britcom grew and moved to new premises in Market Weighton in 2006, he became Engineering Manager

He said: “My latest promotion to the position of Associate Director (Engineering) will allow me to concentrate on developing the Engineering side of the business, working with old and new customers alike, forging relationships with key stakeholders and ensure Britcom is set to cope with the legislative demands in a rapidly evolving industry. Our late Chairman’s saying was ‘it’s hard work at Britcom, but it’s got to be fun’; I could not agree more and look forward to the challenges ahead.”

Adam joined Britcom in 2005 as Business Development Executive, predominantly focused on procurement. Much of his time was spent on the road, building relationships with suppliers of used trucks & trailers, including franchise dealers, finance and leasing companies and large fleet operators.

Subsequently, the decision was made to expand the used vehicle sales operation in the UK and Adam’s experience naturally led to him heading up the department as UK Sales Manager, including the establishment of a second depot in Manchester.

He said: “I enjoy the day to day challenges that working in this industry brings and the interesting (and eccentric !) characters that I deal with day to day; it’s safe to say that no day is every the same. The promotion to Associate Director (Sales) will allow me to contribute to the strategic direction of the business which is a challenge that I am very much looking forward to.”

Chris Urwin, Joint MD said: “Michael and Adam have earned the right to take the next step and assist the existing directors in charting a course for the company in the next decade and beyond.”
