Wessex Garages has appointed Simon Newson as general manager for the dealer group’s new Nissan showroom in Bristol.
Wessex Garages has invested £5m in the new dealership. It will also be a centre for electric vehicles and will be an additional charging point for Bristol.
Newson will handle the day-to-day running of the showroom, which will open on December 18.
Keith Brock, Wessex Garages managing director, said: “Simon is new to the company and we would like to welcome him to the team.
“He has worked in the motor industry for more than 10 years and has five years’ experience in Nissan retail so will be a real asset to our new branch.”
The new dealership will span just over 18,000 square feet and create at least 25 new jobs in addition to the company’s existing Nissan business, which is situated on Pennywell Road.
