Skillnet appoints Matt Benns as new Sales Director
We're delighted to announce that Matt Benns is joining Skillnet as Sales Director.
Matt was a part of the teams that took Mazda and SEAT to become significant brands in the UK market. His most recent role involved delivering a new way of selling cars online through the SEAT stores at Lakeside and Westfield, a system with the potential to change the way people buy cars in the future.
Matt is looking forward to his new role with Skillnet which he sees as "an exciting new challenge in a space that is rapidly growing. The recent government announcement, backed up by support from the IMI, shows how important apprenticeships are in the UK. Combine this with the advancements in technology across autonomous and connected cars, and the future for apprenticeships has never been brighter".
Skillnet's Chief Executive, Lee Acton, said: "I'm really looking forward to working with Matt. As a sales director with a great pedigree in automotive, he will be a huge asset to the company, helping us drive our continued growth in apprenticeships for this exciting industry. We are focussed on helping our customers to recruit and train the hugely talented workforce they need in the future and Matt will be a great addition to our team to help them do that."
