Driving success in automotive retail
We have been keeping customers on the road for more than 30 years and are recognised as a trusted partner to many organisations in the automotive industry.
In a fast-changing world, we are continually adapting so we can meet the needs of our customers and serve our shareholders and stakeholders effectively.
All of the businesses across the Pendragon Group are united in realising our vision to transform automotive retail through digital innovation and operational excellence.
Our strategy is brought to life through three strategic priorities for growth and transformation, these are:
