They will be followed on stage by Jeff Mack, Alternative Fuel Consultant, JMC/NWVA; Vic Turner, CEO of Activate Accident Repair and COO of Activate Group; and Franco Iannotta, Bodyshop Development Manager, VWG for a session entitled ‘Managing EVs in the Real World’, before Dave Sargeant, Managing Director, Gemini; Erika Woollacott, Managing Director, Fix Auto Devon; and Gio Adamo, Senior Engineer, Zego Insurance, address the real world aspects of EV repair.
