Andy Bruce promoted to COO at Lookers

Lookers Plc has promoted Andy Bruce to the newly established position of chief operating officer (COO).

He will continue to report to the group’s chief executive, Peter Jones, and will now take direct responsibility for the group’s leasing, rental and agricultural machinery businesses, while continuing to have operational responsibilities for the motor division.

Born in Glasgow, Bruce was UK sales director for Land Rover prior to joining Lookers in 2000.

He was appointed to the Lookers board as operations director in 2002.

The group’s independent parts division continues under the leadership of managing director Neil Davis, who reports directly to Jones.

Peter Jones commented: “Andy has made a significant contribution to the growth and success of our business.

“His new role will improve the group’s reporting structure by integrating these businesses into the motor division.

“It will also strengthen and provide greater flexibility for the board’s future succession and strategic development plans.”
