Staff Profile - Quantum Team | About Team | Meet Our Team
Dave Guildford Managing Director

Dave is the Managing Director of Quantum Tuning. He started his career in the automotive industry with a four-year apprenticeship at a Ford retail dealership before joining the Jaguar specialist Swallow Motor Company where he remained for two years.

In 1984 Dave began to specialise in diagnostics and tuning at the Crypton Tuning and Dyno Centre – or Middlesex Tuning Centre as it became known – where he gained several additional qualifications.

In 1987 he became a technical service agent for Bosch, and a main dealer of Superchips Ltd. Recognising the market potential within the electronic tuning industry he incorporated Superchips London in 2001, substantially increasing the size of the operation he based in Uxbridge and becoming Superchips’ most successful dealer.

In 2007 a chance meeting with (the now recently retired) Chris Roberts led to a highly effective partnership that saw the formation of Quantum Tuning. Dave’s expertise and contacts within the industry ensured the success of the company, and its standing within the tuning market today.

Kevin Exley Operations Director

Kevin started out at a Ford Main dealer as an apprentice mechanic on a YTS scheme, then progressed quite quickly to become a supervisor by the age of 19.

By the age of 22 he was the assistant Service Manager at one of Leeds's biggest Ford Dealers and then when he was 26 he went to run a Tuning Company in Batley, Yorkshire, where his interest in tuning started.

By the age of 32 Kevin decided to set up his own tuning company - VES(UK) Ltd - and was the first person in the UK to operate as a mobile remapper. Around 2015 we approached him to see if he could help with technical support at Quantum Tuning for a few days a week. Kevin liked the company so much that in April 2019 he decided to invest in the company and is now full time as the Operations Director.
