About Me

Andy has been involved in the Automotive Industry for 30 years. He has owned and managed successful garages since 1994. In 2001 his garage at the time Shaftesbury Garage won the prestigious award of National Independent Garage of the Year Award at the Hilton London.

In 2005 he sold his businesses and went on to complete a Diploma in Automotive Retail Management at Loughborough University (2007). During that period Andy consulted to a variety of Vehicle Manufacturer’s and Parts Distributors in Aftersales Business Improvement (Kaizen) & Strategy.

He was elected Fellow in April 2008 of The Institute of the Motor Industry, which he is very proud of. He is also a council & advisory member of The Independent Automotive Aftermarket Federation (IAAF). The IAFF is a voluntary organisation of senior automotive executives that meet on a regular basis to discuss industry issues and set IAAF policy.

In 2010 Andy opened his newest venture, a state of the art 15000 sqft purpose built vehicle repair workshop offering a dealer level service for BMW, MINI, Volkswagen, Audi, & Land Rover.

In just 18 months July 2012, Brunswick Garage reached the final 5 in The National Independent Garage of the Year Award organised by the Motor Trader Magazine held at the Grosvenor Hotel Park Lane. Having sold this business in November 2015, he is now MD at Savva Automotive an Aftersales consultancy business working with both retail and aftermarket organisations as well as public speaking for the industry and writing for automotive trade publications.

Andy’s attention to detail and philosophy to continually train his entire team to the highest standard has made his garage the ideal partner for our Pro Tech Plus Workshop Scheme.

Andy is widely recognised as one of the leading independent garage owners in the UK. One of the reasons for this is that Andy recognises the constant demand for independent garages to stay ahead of the latest technologies and servicing requirements.

In the UK we have developed relationships with Professional Technicians like Andy Savva who are totally committed to fitting Genuine Original Equipment Parts and deliver a level of service that in many cases exceeds even that offered by the Franchised Dealers.
