Vertu has promoted Clare Mallender to the position of business development manager for its Volkswagen and Hereford Audi sites.
Mallender (pictured), who has worked at both Hereford Audi and Vertu Volkswagen (formerly South Hereford Garages) dealerships for nearly 20 years, was promoted from the role of sales executive.
Forging relationships with local businesses to help them meet their transport needs and ensure the best deal will be among her new responsibilities.
She said: “During my time with the dealership as a sales executive, I have worked with leading local businesses so I am confident that this is a role in which I will excel.
“I’m from Hereford and my husband and I live here with our six year-old daughter, so I know lots of people within the city’s business community already and I’m looking forward to helping them to get the best value for money for their vehicle solutions.”
Operational director for Vertu Volkswagen and Hereford Audi at Vertu Motors plc, Mike Rich, said: “Clare’s promotion is well-deserved. She has been an asset to the business for many years and has proved her worth time and time again.
“Thanks to her local connections, she already dealt with the majority of business-related inquiries during that period, so she is more than prepared for this role and is looking forward to helping local businesses find the right vehicle to suit their requirements.”
