Hitachi Capital Driving Instructor Solutions has a new leadership from the start of 2014 with the appointment of long term Hitachi Capital employee Chris Tarry.

With around 20 years working relationship with Hitachi Capital, Chris joins the team after working under numerous roles with the other Hitachi offices. He has directed the sales and marketing team, developed a sales graduate scheme and led the service delivery department.

Chris has a passion for education and training and spent time in between working for Hitachi to run his own training and coaching company.

Chris said: “I’m extremely proud and excited to be given the opportunity to work with DIS. I have been impressed by the staff and their knowledge and understanding of their customers. I want to help promote that and add further value to our offer. In turn, we will continue to support the industry more widely.”

Former General Manager, Mike Brown, resigned his post to pursue another opportunity outside of the industry.

Mike was at DIS for almost two years, with the last year in the General Manager position and has been instrumental in significant organisational change during his time within the business, leading the way to implement a successful platform to deliver outstanding customer service.

Before his departure, Mike commented: “As a team, we have been working hard over the last year to improve the business, both customer facing and back office.  These changes will make the customer experience even better going forward.  I am happy that I am leaving the business and team in good shape for the future.”
