Andy Duke has been appointed as general manager of Donnelly Honda, in Dungannon.
He brings more than 35 years of experience to the role and will be responsible for all Honda sales and aftersales operations at the dealership.
Dave Sheeran, managing director of Donnelly Group, said: “We are pleased to welcome Andy to Donnelly Group, bringing with him over three decades of experience in the industry and an excellent track record across of a number of areas in the motor business.
“Working closely with our Senior Management team, Andy will build on the trust and expertise that keeps our customers coming back to Donnelly Group time after time.”
Donnelly Honda Dungannon serves Mid Ulster and the West of the province and is a one-stop-shop for the expanding range of new Honda vehicles, Honda Approved used vehicles, servicing and parts.
It’s one of 10 locations owned by the group, including the recently refurbished Boucher Road site, in Belfast. Donnelley Group invested £3m in the new eight-car showroom.
The Northern Ireland-based AM100 car retail group returned to profit in 2020 after delivering £7.2 million of annualised structural cost savings during the COVID-hit year in car retail.
Duke added: “As Northern Ireland’s largest independent motor retailer, Donnelly Group is at the forefront of the automotive industry and is consistently developing innovative strategies to ensure our customers experience the excellence the Group is renowned for.
“I am looking forward to being part of a team that is passionate about finding solutions for the motoring needs of our customers while delivering outstanding service and great value.
“With the range of new Honda models set to be released in the coming years, it is a very exciting time to be joining the Donnelly Honda family.”
Honda recently launched its all-new Civic, which comes with a hybrid powertrain for the first time. Three new electrified models will follow, including an all-electric B-segment SUV, previewed as the e:Ny1 prototype, a C-segment full hybrid SUV, and an all-new CR-V.
