Marshall Motor Group has appointed two new group MDs who will divide the retailer’s brands between them, in a move believed to be similar to that of Pendragon with its Stratstone and Evans Halshaw branches.

Mark Robinson, former CEO and founder of Vantage Motor Group, and Trevor Fussey, former Stratstone boss, were last week both been named group MD. Fussey follows CEO Martin Casha from Pendragon, who joined Marshall in November 2023, after quitting Pendragon in July.

Robinson had served as interim group MD since joining in January.

It is understood Fussey and Robinson will look after different brands within Marshall.

Robinson confirmed to Auto Retail Agenda the splitting of the franchises between him and Fussey but did not respond to which brands would go with which MD.
