New Role for Jonathan Layton at Michelin

Jonathan Layton

Michelin has appointed Jonathan Layton as National Sales Manager, UK and Republic of Ireland, for the Services & Solutions business line.

New Services & Solutions Manager at Michelin

Heading a team of Key Account Managers, Layton brings a wealth of experience to the role, after almost two decades at the company, and reports to Andrew French, Director of Services & Solutions.

He will oversee the standard of service across Michelin’s largest truck and van fleet customers.

An important part of Layton’s new role will be developing the growth of Michelin’s non-tyre solutions, such as its dedicated trailer telematics system Effitrailer and the wheel security solutions created by Michelin-licensee Wheely-Safe.

“That’s a really exciting part of the business to be involved in,” says Layton. “We are looking to grow turnover in all our non-tyre solutions over the coming years and I’m looking forward to playing a part in that success.”
