Chris Kisby is named the first successful bidder for a regional HiQ franchise zone

Former HiQ Retail Director, Chris Kisby, is the first successful bidder for a regional HiQ franchise zone. South, East and West Midlands franchise zones are operated by Chris. He has also had roles such as UK Sales and Marketing Director, European Brand Director, Managing Director for Russia, Belarus and Central Asia, and heading the HiQ Retail network, all of which have given him a wealth of experience with the Goodyear group.

According to Mark Brickhall who is the Group Managing Director, their regional zones were oversubscribed with bids and hence the HiQ Accelerated Franchise Programme was a huge success. Chris has been an integral part of their success. Therefore, they are delighted that Chris is their first successful named bidder.

Chris has played an important role in HiQ’s growth for many years. Their network growth plans and his personal business ambitions will be highly successful with his confidence, experience and knowledge focusing towards a stronger HiQ network.

The successful chosen bidders from every HiQ region will be interviewed and assessed by Goodyear Dunlop. Regional franchise partners will be named after this phase has been completed.

According to Chris, he is fulfilling his ultimate ambition of running his own regional tyre retailing business. In total, he has thirty years of experience in running business units across Europe with Goodyear Dunlop. He looks forward to driving the network forward and recognises a huge potential to grow the business.
