Glews Garage appoints David Giles as dealer principal

Glews Garage has appointed David Giles (pictured right) as dealer principal at its Goole dealership. 

He has joined the firm after working for 18 years at Brian Leighton Garages in Howden.

Giles has worked with a number of manufacturers including Nissan, Mercedes to SsangYong and Izuzu. 

Joseph Richardson (left), Glews' managing director, said “It is an exciting time for Glews and we felt we needed a dealer principal who had the vision and energy to drive our ambitious plans forward. 

"The roundabout development on Rawcliffe Road will bring opportunities for growth and development. David will be responsible for leading his teams to maximize these opportunities and continue to deliver exceptional service to our customers old and new."

Giles said: “My challenge is to lead the dealership on this next phase of its journey, bringing the Glews brand to a wider audience both in private and company vehicle users.

"It is also important to me that we do this whilst maintaining the quality of workmanship, value for money and excellent customer service that Glews has become well known for delivering to the local community."

Glews Garage is the trading name of Jos Richardson and Son, a family run business for more than 100 years. It has an annual turnover of £30 million and has the Peugeot and Vauxhall franchises, a 24-hour recovery and accident repair centre and four service stations.

      @David Frew - your comment doesn't make sense!

      @jeremybennett - The proper title is "Dealer Principal" Do your editorial staff have Motor Trade experience?

      @David Frew - Aha, a spelling mistake, which has been corrected. My thanks for spotting it, if not for the way you highlighted it. No, none of us have worked in a dealership. How many journalists have been active in the businesses, communities, professions, walks of life or lives they write about? It is no barrier or failing.

      @jeremybennett - Ah but Jeremy, the Motor Trade, IMO is detached from a lot of professions (and possibly even somewhat incestuous in its make up?)I honestly believe that your readership would benefit from someone with real experience, but obviously with a journalistic bent. Oh, and please, no more Daily Mail links.

      @David Frew - True and while there is no one on staff like that we do provide the opportunity to those who work with dealers/in dealerships or training staff to write because of the valuable insight they bring.
