Our client is the sole importer of a top Japanese brand and has the focus and vision to continually introduce new and innovative ideas to lead the market in every aspect of the retail motor business.
The position will suit a forward thinking General Manager with a proven track record gained in a Japanese or volume car dealership. You will take full control of a business currently selling over 2000 new vehicles per year and providing the highest levels of Customer Care and After Sales practices, all supported by a team of some 180 motivated professionals.
Financial competence is essential. You will have full responsibility for P & L particularly in the areas of advising the Board on future Investment, and associated projected return. Plus the control of all day-to-day operating budgets and bottom-line objectives for the franchises and developing facilities.
A thorough knowledge of motor trade daily operating controls, computerised systems, financial objectives and CSI is essential, combined with ‘Hands-On’ leadership, strong communication skills and an analytical mind to negotiate sales and performance targets, strategies and procedures with the franchise principals.

The company is investing heavily to continually improve Service facilities along with a never-ending drive to exceed their own stringent policy of Customer Care Excellence.
Decision-making interviews are planned in London, first week of January.
