Automotive training expert Jonathan Buckley has taken the driving seat to steer the rapidly expanding events division of learning and development agency RTS Group.
Jonathan, who has spent the majority of his career in automotive training and events delivery, has been appointed account director at the Chippenham-based firm.
He joins the business from Hyundai, where he managed the manufacturer’s training academy.
“RTS Group has huge credibility and an excellent reputation for delivering training to the automotive retail network, and it will be my role to build on this and develop the events side of the business and the events team,” said Jonathan.
"As I have worked for a manufacturer, I can bring a fresh perspective on what clients want and how to really support them when we deliver exciting and innovative product launches for their retail networks.”
Jonathan began his career in automotive events, moving into training when he joined the Meningitis Trust. He has worked for agencies and for manufacturers, and has had two spells as an RTS Group associate when he was a freelance and instructional designer.
Malcolm Miller, Managing Director of RTS Group, said he was delighted to welcome Jonathan back to the company, in such a senior role.
“We’re thrilled and excited to have Jonathan back with us, in the role of Account Director,” he said.
“We are expanding our events side of the business, including product launches – such as the successful C-HR launch we delivered for Toyota – and it will be Jonathan’s task to build on this and to create a team around him to assist him.”
