Pendragon will rebrand and restructure its Car Store used car division while driving digital innovation in a new growth strategy which it hopes will deliver an underlying profit before tax of £85m to £90m by 2025.
A ‘false economy’ which has seen the UK’s car retail sector deliver on pent-up demand from the COVID-19 lockdown is masking the true extent of impending redundancies in the sector, Pendragon boss Bill Berman has told AM.

Pendragon has announced that 20% of chief executive Bill Berman’s pay will be donated to the NHS as employees across the group were furloughed and took wage cuts during the COVID-19 coronavirus lockdown.
