Commenting on his new role, Alex says: "Aftermarket is a great publication. I've greatly admired it as a reader over the years and I'm delighted to be  its new editor.  There are many challenges ahead for the sector and it is vital that the leading publication in the industry covers the serious issues facing garages and suppliers. I will make sure Aftermarket continues to be the destination publication for news and views in our industry."
