Macklin Motors has appointed Robert Auld to manage its new Glasgow Nissan dealership, currently under construction.
The new dealership on Port Dundas Road, which features an eight-story glass tower, has been under construction for the past 12 months and saw an investment from Macklin Motors’ parent company, Vertu Motors, of over £5 million.
The former DC Thomson’s print-works was demolished to make way for the multi-storey showroom, which also offers lower level used car sales and service areas.
Auld (pictured), general manager of Macklin Motors Glasgow Nissan, will take the helm when the site is officially opened at the beginning of November.
He said: “The new dealership is a fantastic facility and I’m very excited to be moving in with my newly expanded team. Construction has been a year in the making and now that the final touches are being completed you can really get a sense of the scale of the project.
“The dealership’s glass tower is a first for the city and I know that it has got people talking with it being so close to the M8 motorway.”
Auld began his career in the sector as a trainee sales executive and became business manager and sales manager, before taking a franchise manager position for a Mercedes-Benz dealership.
