June 17, 2024

Tavernor, who brings over a decade of experience from global tyre brand Goodyear, is set to play a crucial role in HiQ’s expansion strategy. Having spent 13 years at Goodyear, with a recent focus on fleet management, her diverse background in supply chain and fleet roles equips her well for this new challenge.

In her new capacity, Tavernor will concentrate on bolstering HiQ’s franchisee network, which currently encompasses over 160 autocentres throughout the UK. Her efforts will be directed towards implementing strategies that enhance the support provided to franchise partners, ensuring they continue to thrive under the HiQ umbrella.

“There has never been a better time to be part of HiQ as we focus on attracting more partners to work with us,” Tavernor stated. “We work collaboratively with our partners to create demand for services that demonstrate a strength in numbers mentality. Our service partners are often independent entrepreneurs and businesses that benefit from being part of a UK-wide network. Whether that’s access to consistent business or the use of a nationally-recognised brand. This dynamic creates valuable synergies that benefit every customer.”

HiQ’s franchise model is designed to deliver substantial value to each partner, leveraging the strength of a successful, well-supported network. The new role of Retail Business Consultant is seen as a pivotal opportunity to expand HiQ’s influence and support structure within the industry.

Craig Sprigmore, Goodyear Retail Director UK & Ireland, expressed his enthusiasm about Tavernor's appointment: “We’re delighted to welcome Samantha at such an exciting time for our business. Her wealth of experience and energy will help HiQ to continue to deliver. With our projections for growth, Samantha’s addition to the team will be a huge asset in ensuring the successful execution of our strategy and continued growth for the HiQ network.”

With Tavernor’s expertise, the company is well-positioned to further strengthen its market presence and achieve its growth ambitions.
