Neil Parrott has been appointed as brand manager for Wessex Garages’ new Renault and Dacia dealership in Newport, opening today.
Keith Brock, managing director of Wessex Garages, which also has dealerships in Bristol, Cardiff and Gloucester, said: “Neil worked at the Newport site for 10 years before we moved in and has been a part of the Wessex team for two years as our used car manager.
“He has been in the motor trade since 1987 so has a wealth of knowledge and will be a real asset to the new team.”
The expanding car company opened a purpose-built 3,831 square foot Renault and Dacia showroom today alongside its current Kia, Fiat and Hyundai ones at Newport Retail Park.
Parrott (pictured) said: “Up until now all Renault/Dacia owners living in the Monmouthshire/Torfaen and Blaenau Gwent areas have had to make time consuming trips to either Bristol, Hereford or Cardiff for either aftersales care or sales help and advice and now everything can be catered for under one roof at the purpose built dealership at Newport.”
Wessex Garages is a privately owned company that has outlets in Bristol, Cardiff, Gloucester and Newport. It specialises in new and used car sales across South Wales and the South West.
