BRITISH MOTORHOME AND caravan manufacturers Elddis and Coachman have released a joint statement today, revealing that Martin Henderson is moving from The Explorer Group and joining Coachman Caravan Company, taking on the role of Managing Director.

 

Martin’s career at Elddis began in 1995, before he left to work as a Sales and Marketing Director for Lunar Caravans in 2007. He came back to The Explorer Group – which builds the Autoquest, Accordo and Aspire ranges of Elddis motorhomes, as well as Elddis, Xplore, Buccaneer and Compass touring caravans – in March last year, also in the role of Sales and Marketing Director.

 

It is positive to hear that both Elddis and Coachman have pledged their support for this move. Martin will join the Coachman Caravan Company from 18 August 2014, which for him will fulfil an ambition to take the reins of a major British manufacturer. He will be working alongside Jim Hibbs, Coachman’s Executive Chairman.

 

And that’s not all, as The Explorer Group has also promoted one long-time employee to a senior strategic role. With effect from tomorrow (1 July 2014), Spencer Davies will be working as National Sales Manager, announced the Managing Director of Elddis, Rob Quine. Having worked within The Explorer Group since 2003, this is a major appointment for Spencer. 

 

“This is a great time to be working with all of our touring caravan and motorhome dealers,” he said. “Our radical product development, together with our unique SoLiD construction, has given us huge momentum and sales growth. My target is to deliver further growth long into the future.”

 

With the 2014 summer touring season well underway and motorhome manufacturers preparing for the launch of their 2015 model ranges, we are sure that Elddis and Coachman will hope that these appointments will strengthen their brands at this crucial time of the year.
