The Wakefield-based company, which has 13 dealerships and employs 300 people across Yorkshire, has appointed Venn to oversee its day-to-day management and evolve the organisation from a thriving family business, to a class-leading motor retailer.

Venn said: “We have exciting plans over the next few months that will not only improve the daily operations of the business, but enhance our already award-winning customer service.”
Shaun Harratt, managing director, Harratts, said: “Andrew has vast experience in the car retail industry and we’re extremely happy to have acquired his services.
“His appointment is part of our long term strategy to move the business towards a more structured, process driven group which is recognised for its five star customer service.”
