Appointment of Jon Taylor Signals New Era for Training At Point S Tyre & Autocare

Point S Tyre & Autocare, the UK’s leading independent tyre dealer and maintenance network, has officially announced the appointment of Jon Taylor as UK and European Training Manager.

In his new role, Jon will be responsible for researching, managing, and overseeing a market-leading training programme for members of the Point S network. True to Point S’ stated mission of helping to futureproof its members’ businesses, a critical aspect of the training programme will be dedicated training courses on Electric Vehicle (EV) maintenance.

Jon brings a wealth of experience in establishing global training programmes and qualifications to the role, having previously led the development of Plug-In Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV) and EV training programmes for premium automotive manufacturer, Jaguar Land Rover.

The appointment is an important milestone in Point S’ journey to become the largest qualified and certified European network for EV maintenance by 2026. Jon’s initial task, however, will be to lay the foundations for success, consulting with Point S members and conducting a Training Needs Analysis across Europe. In the longer term, his objective is to manage and oversee the creation and delivery of bespoke training programmes that will equip Point S members with the skills and knowledge required to service modern vehicles and systems with confidence.

Commenting on his new position, Jon Taylor said, “I am excited at the prospect of building a bespoke Point S training programme, drawing on the experience and knowledge gained in my previous roles. Here, I am starting with a blank canvas, so it’s a unique opportunity to create bespoke training that is meticulously researched, comprehensive in scope, and highly tailored to the needs of Point S members”.

Wayne Daniel, UK Network Operations Manager, said, “Jon’s vast experience in establishing global training platforms speaks for itself. Our aim is to develop a platform that is second to none in the aftermarket, so that our members can continue to flourish, now and in the future”.
