Mark Gatland joins KCS to drive the future of consultancy in the Middle East

KCS Automotive is proud to announce Mark Gatland as Senior Consultant, primarily focussed on the Middle East market.

As automotive IT consultancy becomes ever more in demand across the world, KCS Automotive is excited to announce the appointment of Keyloop specialist Mark Gatland as Senior Consultant.  

Mark has been involved in the motor trade for his entire career and began working for Kerridge back in 2000 where he specialised in finance consultancy for the business.  

In 2011, Mark moved to the Middle East to oversee and facilitate the implementation of the Kerridge system into automotive businesses across the region and has been based there ever since, having forged strong relationships with major retailers in the region and honed his approach to accommodate the cultural and operational difference of working in the MiddleEastern market.  

In addition to his experience in the Middle East, Mark has taken his industry expertise even further around the globe, consulting in emerging markets in Africa, Asia and Central and Eastern Europe. He brings an excellent understanding of cultural relations wherever he is based and his appointment will enable KCSAutomotive to offer its specialist consultancy services to global markets, specifically focused on the Middle East.

Ritchie Kelk, KCS Automotive Director, commented on the new appointment stating: “The Middle Eastern market is an exciting opportunity, and there is no one better equipped for the role than Mark Gatland. He’s proved himself time and again during his career and excels in building relations outside of the UK. We’re all very excited to see what and how Mark will contribute to the success of the business as he opens new avenues for us in this critical market.”

Mark Gatland added: “I am delighted to be joining KCS's team of specialist consultants, many of whom I have known and worked with for years, and the projects that we already have in the works are worth getting excited about. I am eager to pave the way forward and explore diverse markets in the Middle East and further afield. The automotive industry has a completely different dynamic over here, and I’m looking forward to the challenge of developing new relationships for KCS in this rapidly evolving environment. There are many exciting opportunities ahead and I cannot wait to tackle them - every day at as a consultant brings a new challenge and therefore a new opportunity to grow and innovate.”
