THERE is a new Chief Operating Officer Remarketing Division of BCA: Stuart Pearson.
Pearson has been promoted to the position following the retirement of Simon Henstock (April) after a 40-year career with BCA.
Pearson is no stranger to BCA either, having started as a Management Trainee at BCA Derby nearly 25 years ago.
He managed BCA Preston in 2000, then managed the auction supercentre in Bedford on its opening in 2005. In 2015, he held the role of Operations Director, BCA UK Remarketing and became Managing Director, BCA UK Remarketing the following year.
Outgoing COO Simon Henstock joined BCA in 1978 and held a number of senior operational and sales roles during his 40-year career with BCA. He was appointed Chief Operating Officer BCA UK Remarketing in 2015 during a time of rapid expansion of the BCA network that included the integration of the former SMA sites and the opening of the new Birmingham, Parry Barr facility.
Avril Palmer-Baunack, BCA Executive Chairman commented:
“We are delighted to appoint Stuart Pearson to this significant role. Stuart’s experience and passion for the industry will be critical as we continue to drive our business forward and meet the increasing demands of a fast-moving marketplace. We wish Stuart great success in this next step in his career at BCA.”
She added: “We also wish Simon Henstock the very best as he enjoys his well-earned retirement following a long and distinguished career with BCA.”
