Ron Brooks has been appointed Suzuki sales and service for Derby and the wider area. It complements the retailer’s other Suzuki business in Mansfield, Nottingham. The site will open in the coming weeks and is part of the retailer’s growth pipeline to exceed £100m turnover.

Group manager Tom Slack said the strategy was to “grow meaningful relationships with selected brands at scale” and thanked Suzuki MD Dale Wyatt and the wider management team for putting the brand’s faith in the 60-year-old retailer.
