Cooper Solutions has appointed Chris Rich as account manager and Alison Cloonan (pictured) as business development manager.
Rich began his motor retail career at BMW where he progressed to sales manager and finally general manager for Cotswold BMW Gloucester.
After 18 years with BMW, he was appointed general manager for Bentley at Broughtons.
His role at Cooper Solutions will see him draw upon his experience of its range of services offered and understanding of how they can enable dealers to get the best from their business processes and practices.
Rich said: “As business development manager, I will be helping retailers maximise the value of the Cooper Solutions products on a daily basis. By making reporting easier we not only help retailers manage their business more effectively but boost profitability.”
Cloonan joins Cooper Solutions after 18 years at PCR Robins & Day, where she was used car sales manager.
She also has extensive experience of benefiting from the Cooper Solutions product portfolio and is a particular advocate of its FullAuction and FullForecast solutions.
“I have launched more than 1,000 cars on FullAuction and I understand how incorporating FullAuction and FullAppraisal can truly speed up retailer processes and look forward to working closely with customers to ensure they get the best out of these market leading applications,” Cloonan said.
