Manheim has promoted Matthew Davock into the role of director of commercial vehicles from his previous role as head of LCV.
Davcock (pictured), who has been with Cox Automotive for over 20 years, will be replacing James Davis who has moved to the role of customer insight and strategy director for commercial vehicles.
Manheim’s managing director, Peter Bell, said: “Matthew has shown exceptional skills in his role as Head of LCV, and together he and James have strived to achieve Manheim’s position as the clear market-leader.”
Joining from school to work with Manheim’s Haydock auction centre, Davcock worked his way up to join the National CV team as head of LCV in 2014.
During his career, he has launched a dedicated CV selling centre in Shepshed, introduced a second lane at the business’s Gloucester branch and added a new sale to the Haydock auction programme. He has also supported the development of Manheim’s online commercial vehicle offering.
“At Manheim, we take pride in supporting our team members to achieve their career goals,” said Bell.
“I am delighted that Matthew will now bring his expertise and knowledge to this new appointment and look forward to working with him on a strategy that will continue to build on our success in the CV sector as we head into 2019 and beyond.”
