Motorpoint has promoted former general sales manager at its Newport car supermarket to the role of head of group operations.
Russell Louth takes the helm in a move which sees former sales manager, Chris Brown, take on the role of general manager at the Newport facility.
Brown will oversee a 50-strong team based at the company’s branch near the Newport Retail Park.
Brown said: “I am thrilled to be given the opportunity to lead the team and look forward to working closely with my colleagues to increasing Motorpoint’s market share across South Wales and South West England and, in the process, build on our well-earned reputation for providing choice, value and service to the thousands of customers that purchase from us here in Newport every year.”
Mark Carpenter, managing director of Motorpoint, added: “Chris is yet another example of promoting from within wherever possible. He demonstrates passion and energy in all that he does and is a welcome addition to the senior management team at Motorpoint.”
Motorpoint, the principal sponsor of the world-renowned Motorpoint Arena Cardiff, has been based in Newport for over a decade.
Located on the Queensway Meadow Industrial Estate, the facility currently stocks over 500 new and nearly new low mileage cars from 30 different vehicle manufacturers with access to a further 6,000 plus cars in group stock.
