Pendragon PLC, one of Nottinghamshire's top retailers, is celebrating as its CEO, Trevor Finn, takes the leading spot in the Motor Trader Top 60 Movers & Shakers list.
Retaining the top position for another year, Trevor takes the place thanks to Pendragon's continuous strong performance in the automotive industry, recently ranking as Number One in the Motor Trader Top 200 Franchises Dealers. Having led the company for the last 27 years, Trevor started his career with Pendragon as an apprentice mechanic and forged forwards with its growth.
As the county's second largest company by turnover, Pendragon PLC has more than 9,600 team members located around the country and turns over more than £4.5 billion. The results follow the business' successful internet growth and business initiatives leading the evolution of automotive retailing, such as the first automotive click and collect service, Move Me Closer, its popular used car purchasing scheme, Sell Your Car, and its aftersales progress update portal.
With the company's strategy focused on four 'pillars' of Choice, Value, Customer Service and Convenience, this is supported by its people and protected by ownership of its evolving intellectual property and IT.
"Of course it's pleasing to be listed within the Top 60 for another year. As ever, our teams are at the heart of our business and key to our success.
"I'd like to thank all members of our teams for taking Pendragon to where it is today. Without everybody pulling together we wouldn't be able to achieve these great results. As we continue to grow and develop, we're in a great position for the year ahead."
