After a decade with Scania Great Britain and others Phil Holmes has returned to Keltruck Scania as Used Vehicle Sales Manager once again.

Phil was born in 1958 &, after leaving school, he took out an apprenticeship in mechanical engineering & technical design.

After serving his apprenticeship, Phil worked from the shop floor to both driving & the operational side of the transport industry with sales being at forefront for 20 years with a large group of companies before joining the Scania network.

Phil first joined Scania Distributor East Midland Commercials in October 1994 as Used Vehicle Sales Executive, steadily rising through the ranks to become Used Vehicle Sales Manager & then Used Vehicle Sales Director in June 2001. Following the takeover of East Midland Commercials by Keltruck, Phil became Used Sales Manager based at the Burton on Trent depot in December 2004 & West Bromwich in December 2008.

After leaving Keltruck in October 2010 Phil spent 3 years at Scania (Great Britain) as Asset Purchasing Manager. He then joined ATE Truck & Trailer Sales Limited from July 2013 to August 2020 which changed its name to Asset Alliance Group Limited in January 2019. Phil rejoined Keltruck in August 2020.

Phil holds current full licences for HGVs & BWSF Power Boats (UK & International).

Phil is married with two daughters. His daughter, Nicola, has been employed by Keltruck for many years & works in the Willenhall specialist services division. His second daughter, Danielle, is a dialysis nurse.

Interests include motor sport & water skiing.

David Morgan, Sales Director, commented: “I’m delighted to welcome Phil back to Keltruck Scania after a decade away from the fold. His achievements during that time have been hugely impressive with a very large volume of vehicles both acquired and disposed of for his employers so I’m particularly pleased that Phil has agreed to return his firepower to us.”

Phil Holmes commented: “It’s great to be rejoining Keltruck Scania, which has always felt like home for me. With my daughter also being a long-standing employee of the company and so many families also working within the company it certainly is a family affair.

“I’m looking forward to helping Keltruck boost our domestic Scania used sales and also contributing to the growing global exports operation which has really stepped up several notches in the past decade, including a dedicated container loading bay at West Bromwich head office.”
