Retail group CJ Automotive (CJA) has promoted Andrea Hodgson from group fleet manager to fleet director.
The announcement follows its expansion into North Wales, with the recent acquisition of Volkswagen, Audi, SEAT and Skoda franchises in Abergele and Anglesey.
Hodgson has been with CJA for 18 months after joining from Volkswagen UK, where she was area operations manager and luxury car manager, before stepping up to regional fleet manager.
Her remit is to offer customers ‘the best value and customer satisfaction whilst maximising cross-brand opportunities’.
CJA’s managing director Ian Rutter commented: “Developing and rewarding our people for great performance is the cornerstone of our business. Andrea has excelled in a tough market.”
Hodgson added: “It is a hugely exciting time for the group as we take on new brands. From providing only Volkswagen less than five years ago, we now offer eight marques including BMW, Honda, Audi and Skoda. It puts us in a really strong position.”
