Former Thurlow Nunn managing director Simon Bottomley has joined Hendy Group as its new chief operating officer.
Until the end of October Bottomley was group managing director at Thurlow Nunn, the £218 million turnover dealer group with 12 Vauxhall dealerships and an agricultural supplies division across Norfolk, Suffolk, Cambridgeshire, Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire.
Bottomley also served on the Vauxhall retailer board.
Hendy Group, also a family-run AM100 retailer, had turnover exceeding £500 million in 2017 having expanded quickly with its acquisition of Lifestyle Europe in 2016.
A multi-franchise group spanning much of the south of England, Hendy's manufacturer partners include Ford, Honda, Kia, Renault, Dacia, Suzuki, Seat, Mazda and MG.
Following Bottomley’s departure, Thurlow Nunn has appointed William Tew to a director position, according to Companies House records.
