Bowker BMW Blackburn has appointed Richard Cowell as general sales manager.
Richard Cowell was previously corporate business development manager with the business.
His new role of general sales manager will also incorporate the position of BMW new car sales manager.
Cowell (pictured) will provide support and assistance to sales manager colleagues at Bowker Mini; Bowker used cars and Blackburn Car Centre – also at the site.
Cowell has worked for Bowker Motor Group for 18 years.
He began at Preston in aftersales before becoming a Mini sales executive, business manager, BMW sales controller and Mini manager until his most recent job in corporate business development.
Bowker BMW managing director Chris Eccles said: “Sales managers with Richard’s breadth of experience are rare. He has been a valued member of the team at the Bowker Motor Group for many years. And this latest role will give him another opportunity to develop and continue contributing to our success.
“Richard is a popular manager and I’m looking forward to working with him as this new chapter in his career develops.”
Last month, Bowker BMW in Blackburn was crowned BMW UK Aftersales Retailer of the Year.
The award recognises the retailer’s consistent aftersales performance across a wide selection of criteria including parts retailing; sales achievement; and customer satisfaction.
