Kevin Lawton is new Michelin Sales Manager
Kevin has a long history of working in different roles for Michelin throughout his career

Michelin Solutions has appointed Kevin Lawton as UK and Republic of Ireland Bus and Coach Sales Manager.

He moves from his position as UK Operations Manager after nearly six years.

Kevin will work closely with Michelin Solutions’ customers to ensure an “excellent quality of service” across the company’s 32,000 contracted coach and bus assets. He will also focus on extending the company’s unique tyre management solutions to prospective customers, and will be based at Michelin Solutions’ UK headquarters in Stoke-on-Trent.

Says Kevin: “The coach and bus industry is set for a seismic shift in the years ahead, as hybrid propulsion gradually takes over from traditional diesel engines, and fully-electric buses become the norm. Michelin’s coach and bus tyre technologies need to evolve in harmony.”

Kevin has previously worked as a Michelin Competition Technician, supporting Ford, Peugeot and Vauxhall’s involvement in the British Rally Championship.

Adds Kevin: “Michelin has always been one step ahead of the curve, and I’m eager to settle into my new role and help deliver products and services that keep our customers on the road safely and efficiently.”
