We Have Faces!

Michael Gregory, Managing Director
Having spent 14 years as dealer principle running his own multi franchised export business, with premises in the UK and Germany selling new and used tax free cars in the UK, Germany, Holland and Belgium, as well as working directly with the OEM's as a multi-franchise dealership he has gleaned significant experience in the industry. Mike is a highly credible, bi-lingual (English German) Business Manager with more than 35 years' experience globally as a Business Consultant & Managing Director. He has extensive experience within the Automotive sector, IT and Telecoms. Mike also has specific expertise in the development and implementation of business plans & sales strategy in a range of businesses from start-up to existing SMB – SME.

In 2012 Mike had the pleasure of working with BMW and Pentagon Car Sales in Germany, this is when he learned about the Cilajet offerings. Living above the Cilajet application center and selling BMW new and used cars to the American military, he soon became integrally involved with the product, actually selling Cilajet to many happy customers. It was the enthusiasm for Cilajet from his customers which impressed most, along with the fantastic results and mirror like finish that stayed with Mike and lead him to approach Cilajet in the states with a view to setting up a distribution business in the UK and Ireland.

So here we are, the launch of Cilajet UK Limited in January 2016... I can't tell you how proud I am to be given the opportunity to bring to market such a dynamic 'best in class' aviation grade paint protection system in the UK.
