Kate Patel

Managing Director

"I joined the QLS family in 2011 after several years in various management roles outside of the automotive industry. After 18 months in the administration office I moved over to the Operational side of the business as the Operations Manager.


In 2017 I joined the board as Operations Director and in 2018 my role was expanded to include the oversight of the administration and Finance office. After a couple of years running the day to day business, I took 100% ownership of the business on 30th September 2020."
