MARSHALL Motor Group has appointed Carole Merry as franchise director responsible for the company’s Volvo, Honda and Maserati division.
Carole, pictured, has more than 20 years’ motor trade experience working with a number of the top dealer groups.
She joined Marshall Motor Group in 2014 as general manager for Marshall Honda and Marshall Maserati in Peterborough, and since January 2018 has also held the sales operations manager role for the Volvo, Honda & Maserati division.
As such, she has played an integral part in improving the profitability, sales performance and customer experience of 15 MMG dealerships.
Daksh Gupta, Marshall Motor Holdings CEO, said: ‘Carole’s appointment is another clear illustration of Marshall’s colleague development strategy of promoting from within.
‘We have been delighted with Carole’s career progression and relationships with these three key manufacturer partners so I am excited to see her building on her Volvo, Honda and Maserati sales operations successes.’
Shaun Allen, who held the Volvo, Honda and Maserati franchise director role for the last three years, will now head up Marshall Motor Group’s Jaguar Land Rover division.
Both Shaun and Carole start their new roles on January 2.
