Mayor Consultants Pty Ltd
Owner of body shop consultancy company, Mayor Consultants Pty Ltd and with over thirty-five years of experience in the automotive industry, from the UK to Asia and Australia, Digby has developed a diverse skill set and has a multitude of achievements to stand him in good stead for any challenge that comes his way. Digby’s many years of world-class multinational exposure in all areas of the automotive industry, from working with OEM / paint manufacturing to business consulting with the vehicle repair and refinishing industry, has enabled him to tailor solutions to suit everyone. Digby’s career progression is clearly indicative of his drive to achieve and satisfy the needs of an increasingly challenging market.
Commencing in the automotive industry in the UK as an area sales manager, Digby immigrated to Australia in 1984 to further his experience in this field. Working for Dulux Autocolour for seven years saw Digby expand his knowledge and skill set across a broad spectrum. Whilst working for Dulux Automotive, Digby headed a team to increase sales and set up distributors through the Northern Territory, Far North Queensland and the top end of Western Australia, Digby achieved more business growth than any prior year through re-design of the supply chain and doubling the client base. Relocating with Dulux to Melbourne, Victoria, Digby worked on the development of the regional areas and increased the network. Then moving from the automotive side of the business to the Dulux Industrial Protective Coatings, he moved to the Northern Territory to set up a supply chain as he had achieved with the auto refinish department. Through Digby’s experience working closely with the repair and refinish industry, he started his own collision repair company in 1992. The company achieved rapid growth and expansion into the towing and insurance industries.
Approached by global paint manufacturing company PPG Industries in 2000, Digby spearheaded a consulting department for the ANZ and AP markets. This department soon grew into one of the largest departments within the company. Digby’s roles within PPG included business development manager Queensland, national MVP manager Queensland, national MVP manager Australia/NZ, and national strategic relationships manager Australia/NZ.
In late 2014 Digby commenced his own consulting company, Mayor Consulting Pty Ltd, successfully working with multiple shops from prestige OEMs in the Asia Pacific market, the Middle East and the EU. Within these regions, Mayor Consultants Pty Ltd orchestrates the building of shops and repair networks with a focus on the rapid repair sector using the latest UV technology.
This has led Digby to now have a globally integrated supply chain and logistics for automotive consumables and equipment.
