Tim McCarthy, Business Development Director at FAB is almost of retirement age! It is therefore with great sadness that FAB is announcing that at the end of April they will be waving him goodbye to start his new life in Spain.

In just six years at FAB Tim has been instrumental in growing the business from being the UK’s largest specialist BMW dismantlers, to one of the largest suppliers of traceable quality green parts to numerous household named fleets. For this success, he has secured his place in the history of FAB, and possibly for green parts industry as a whole!

From his modest beginnings selling Ski yoghurts, his career took him through companies such as TNT and 14 years in the dental industry ending as a National Sales Manager. Tim knew he had hit the big time when he was appointed Business Development Manager here at FAB. Tim says; “I have enjoyed every day working at FAB, witnessing our development as a company and progress within the green parts industry has made me feel very proud of the whole team’s effort. I’ll definitely miss them all”.

FAB is now searching for a suitable candidate to take on the role of Key Account Manager. So, if you are charismatic, hardworking, innovative, and would relish the challenge of working alongside the team at FAB then contact them on 01594 827 333.

We wish Tim all the best for his future life in Spain.
