Bristol Street Motors Renault and Dacia Bradford has a new general manager with more than two decades of experience in the motor industry.

Darren Simpson (pictured) entered the motor retail industry after getting a taste for it aged just 16, when he worked as a valeter during the summer holidays for a small family-run dealership. Now, 21 years later, he is responsible for a 40-strong team at the Thornton Road dealership, part of Vertu Motors' network.
