TREVOR Finn has decided to retire as chief executive officer of Pendragon after 30 years at the company.
Finn made the announcement late on Friday, December 14, and will step down from the role no later than March 31, 2019.
The board has now begun the process of appointing a new CEO of the company, which owns the Evans Halshaw and Stratstone dealer groups.
Finn said: ‘Pendragon is, and remains, a great company full of talented people, and I feel privileged to have led the business during its formative period and to have ignited the transformative period of development currently under way.
‘The time is now right to hand over to a successor to see the company through the next phase of its development.’
Chris Chambers, non-executive chairman of Pendragon, added: ‘I would like to thank Trevor for all his efforts throughout a long and successful career approaching 30 years with the company.
‘The board fully respects Trevor’s decision and wishes him well for the future.’
