Ford executive to speak at IBIS Ireland 2019

Jim Azzouz, marketing director for aftersales at Ford Europe, will be giving the opening presentation at the upcoming IBIS Ireland event on May 2, 2019.

Azzouz will be giving a vehicle manufacturer’s perspective on collision repair within today’s aftermarket. He will focus on Ford Europe’s collision programme and its overall approach to the collision aftermarket.

Azzouz has held a variety of positions in marketing, sales and service during his 19 years with Ford, mainly spent in North America. Previously, Azzouz’s global remit for revenue management and pricing in Dearborn Michigan saw him engaging closely with all major global markets. This deepened Azzouz understanding of the opportunities and challenges in the aftermarket.
