The bodyshop Awards 2016 are being held this week and Nationwide have been named as finalists at this prestigious industry awards.

Three of Nationwide’s General Managers have been selected in the final four in the Bodyshop Manager category; Mark Neat (Nationwide Nottingham), Graham Prew (Nationwide Exway Torbay) and Mick Murray (Nationwide Just Car Clinics Hinckley).

There is also delight for the Training Team at Nationwide who have made the final three in the Training category for the fourth year running.

Named as winners of the Award in 2014, the Training Team have highlighted the investment and expansion of the centre alongside the increased number of technical team members using the centre for development with positive effect. Recognition in the top three at the bodyshop awards is testament to the continued commitment and hard work of the training team.

Mark Neat General Manager at Nationwide Nottingham has been an integral part of the Nottingham team over the past 4 years. As General Manager since 2015, his passion and enthusiasm to build an engaged team is clear, offering support with a personal management style. An advocate for investing in the training and developing of his team, Mark has proven that the financial success of the site will follow as a result.

During Graham Prew’s 22 years as Manager at Torbay his forward thinking approach and desire to get the best out of his team has been a proven formula. Focusing on improving key areas with his team has resulted in an increased profitability. Although the industry is constantly changing Graham’s ability to embrace change and ensure his team are constantly developing their skills is key.

Mick Murray is into his fourth year as General Manager of Nationwide Just Car Clinics Hinckley, one of our larger sites within the group. His approachable, open style of management contributes to keeping his large team motivated and moral high. Monitoring all aspects of the business & communicating these with his team ensures they are focused and deliver the financial targets set.
