Adam Street, general sales manager at Ocean Automotive's Volvo Cars Poole dealership

Ocean Automotive has appointed Adam Street as the new general sales manager of its Volvo Cars Poole dealership.

Street joins the Poole-based AM100 franchised car retail group from Eden Vauxhall, where he was a sales manager.

The business said that its new recruit would bring a wealth of knowledge from his six years in the motoring industry.

His new role will include the management of the team at the retailer and ensuring that the team’s high standards of customer experience are maintained.

Street said: “I’m thrilled to be joining the team here at Volvo Cars Poole, as well as the wider network of Volvo Car UK.

"Volvo has always been market-leading in terms of safety, and with each product brings something new and exciting to the market.

“One of the things that attracted me to Volvo as a company was its sustainability pledges. I believe that electrification is the future, and Volvo has a fantastic offering when it comes to electric vehicles, being the first car manufacturer to offer a plug-in hybrid for every model in its range.

“There is huge potential at Volvo Cars Poole, and I’m excited to be a part of building a successful business.”

Data published by the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT) last week showed that Volvo Car UK’s new car registrations declined by 17.4% in 2020, to 56208 (2019: 46,408), outperforming a market down by 29.4% overall.
