Lookers has appointed current managing director Nigel McMinn to the role of chief operating officer. The auto retailer has also appointed Allan Rushforth to the role of MD. Rushforth joins Lookers from Nissan, where he was corporate vice president of global sales, and will report directly to McMinn.

Commenting on the management reshuffle, McMinn said: “These changes provide the foundations for the continued growth of Lookers, providing our business with the organisational capability to stay ahead of the market, accelerate our strategic ambition and achieve our short term operational goals.”
