Automotive motor factor The Parts Alliance has appointed “passionate business leader” Mark Eburne as its new president and chief operations officer.
Eburne joins the business, which operates more than 170 branches across the UK, following the departure of Neil Croxson in June, and brings experience from a variety of sectors including automotive, construction, utilities and support services.

He said: “I’m incredibly excited to join the team at The Parts Alliance. This is a successful business with a fantastic reputation for service, quality and the passion of its people.
“With its ongoing investment in market-leading technology, an expanding nationwide distribution network and close relationships with the world’s foremost OE manufacturers, The Parts Alliance is a business that is rightly ambitious.
“I look forward to working with the team to help our people, our customers and our suppliers prosper in the months and years ahead.”
The Parts Alliance’s chief financial officer, Sally Dowling, said: “We’re delighted to welcome Mark to the team. He’s a strategic and passionate business leader with a proven track record for success who will hit the ground running.
“He joins The Parts Alliance during an exciting period of growth and opportunity, when the automotive aftermarket has demonstrated not just its resilience to the pandemic, but its great potential to thrive as an essential service.”
