Stuart Pearson promoted to Chief Operating Officer BCA UK Remarketing

BCA has announced that Stuart Pearson will be promoted to Chief Operating Officer Remarketing Division (COO) taking over from Simon Henstock, who retires from the business and the industry this month following a forty-year career with BCA.

Pearson has been with BCA for nearly 25 years, starting as a Management Trainee at BCA Derby.  He managed BCA Preston in 2000, then managed the auction supercentre in Bedford on its opening in 2005.   In 2015, he held the role of Operations Director, BCA UK Remarketing and became Managing Director, BCA UK Remarketing the following year. 

Outgoing COO Simon Henstock joined BCA in 1978 and held a number of senior operational and sales roles during his forty-year career with the company.  He was appointed Chief Operating Officer BCA UK Remarketing in 2015 during a time of rapid expansion of the BCA network that included the integration of the former SMA sites and the opening of the new Birmingham, Parry Barr facility.

Avril Palmer-Baunack, BCA Executive Chairman commented, “We are delighted to appoint Stuart Pearson to this significant role.  Stuart’s experience and passion for the industry will be critical as we continue to drive our business forward and meet the increasing demands of a fast-moving marketplace.  We wish Stuart great success in this next step in his career at BCA.”

She added “We also wish Simon Henstock the very best as he enjoys his well-earned retirement following a long and distinguished career with BCA.”
