Schaeffler appoints new operations manager

Schaeffler (UK) Ltd. has appointed Philip Elson as operations manager at its Automotive Aftermarket headquarters and warehouse facility in Hereford, UK.

Philip Elson

Elson is a familiar face in the aftermarket, having spent over 17 years in a variety of senior management roles at Mann+Hummel, most recently as project director responsible for the integration of the WIX Filters brand after its acquisition in 2016.

He has amassed a huge amount of experience across all business areas, including sales & marketing, business development and operations & distribution logistics, which Schaeffler says made him ideally suited for the position.

Schaeffler managing director, Nigel Morgan, is happy to have secured Phil’s services and said: “I am very pleased to welcome Phil to the Schaeffler family. He comes with a vast amount of operational experience and will fit right in as we continue to both improve our customer service levels and develop the business in the UK and Ireland.”
