Peter Cameron to retire

Peter Cameron, operations director at The Bridewell Group and director of Network Automotive Management, is to retire this month after more than 40 years in the motor industry.

A fellow of the Institute of the Motor Industry, Cameron studied Motor Vehicle Engineering at Croydon, entering the motor industry by joining his family's battery manufacturing and tyre distributorship.

In 1971, Peter went to California to work at Nissan's US headquarters in customer relations, and after several promotions became service systems manager, responsible for planning aftersales requirements for 900 dealers with annual sales of 500,000 car per annum.

Returning to the UK, Cameron worked with International Harvester in truck parts distribution before joining Citroen UK in a senior sales position and creating the company's fleet sales division in 1984.

Invited to join Fiat as fleet director in 1986, his team increased sales by more than 240% in less than five years. From there, he became European marketing director at Dennis Specialist Vehicles.

In 1997, Cameron joined Forester Grant Associates, which acquired The Bridewell Group in 2000 and the controlling interest in Network Automotive Management in 2003.

Cameron, who is retiring to the east coast of the United States, said: "I have very much enjoyed working in the motor industry for so many years in such a wide variety of roles. I have made many friends and shared many enjoyable and valuable experiences with a great number of colleagues."
