New MD role for former Birmingham Royal Ballet boss

Jan Teo, managing director of National Windscreens

National Windscreens, the UK’s largest independently owned windscreen repair and replacement specialist, has appointed Jan Teo as managing director.

Teo had left the Birmingham Royal Ballet in March, having been chief executive since August 2015. Previously she had developed expertise in the motoring and financial services sectors, most recently with Deutsche Bank, Fraikin and Lex Transfleet.

The Tamworth-headquartered business had been searching for a new managing director following the retirement of Pete Marsden after eight years with the company, the last three as managing director.

Teo said: “Pete Marsden will be leaving National Windscreens in great shape and I’m looking forward to leading the continued growth of the company and its highly respected brand.

“Our focus will remain firmly on the delivery of outstanding customer service through investment in people, innovation and technological leadership.”

National Windscreens’ most recent published accounts, for the year to May 2017, showed turnover of £55m – an increase of £20m in just two years.

It has more than 100 fitting centres nationwide and a team of 800 mobile technicians.

National Windscreens director Phil Lomas added: “Under Pete’s leadership, National Windscreens has undergone important and necessary change and is now a stronger company.”
