Car Dealer Live 41: Eden Motor Group CEO Graeme Potts

Time 1 year ago

Eden Motor Group chief executive Graeme Potts chatted to us on Car Dealer Live on May 26.

Potts has had a fascinating career in the motor trade and now runs the Eden Group, which has 20 dealerships across the south coast.

The group was started as a joint venture between Potts and Vauxhall and has grown to now represent seven brands in total.


On his group’s website, Potts writes: ‘As principal shareholder I have spent over 25 years in the UK automotive sector and have extensive experience of delivering a customer experience combined with company growth and profitability. 

‘In establishing Eden we are committed to combining the best practices of the big name manufacturers with the individual service and personalisation of a smaller, private company.’

Potts has been selling cars online during the lockdown and chatted to us about his career, the news that car dealers can now reopen on June 1 and what he thinks the future market looks like for car dealers.

Topics also included:

  • The principles that drive Eden Motor Group
  • The group’s growth plan – or rather, why it didn’t need one
  • The future of physical dealerships
  • Fears of a recession
  • The businesses Potts admires
