Matt Holmes, Director

After graduating from the University of Hull in 1997, I joined the business in 1999 following a period with AXA Insurance. In my 20 years of involvement with the automotive logistics sector I have travelled widely and worked with stakeholders across Europe. I am responsible for our service delivery to our range of manufacturers and insurers.

I seek to share my experience through contributing to the sector’s media and by presenting to conferences, raising awareness of the issues associated with damage and risk management.

I am proud of the services we offer and the great team we have supporting our clients.

James Sadlier, Director

Having developed a high standard of quality awareness working through various roles with a leading vehicle manufacturer, from the production lines to logistics quality, I joined Sevatas in 2010 to deliver effective loss prevention activity for our insurer client and their insured manufacturer. In 2014, my role expanded to focus on providing our range of loss prevention services to all of our clients, as well as leadership of our various inspection and logistics quality teams.

With a degree from the Open University supporting more than 20 years’ experience in the automotive sector I, like all at Sevatas, seek to find solutions to deliver the best outcomes for our clients.
