Bowker moves bring sites together

Bowker Motor Group has revealed a new-look management team which will see its Blackburn and Preston BMW and MINI sites working closer together.

Richard Cowell, previously the general sales manager at Bowker BMW at Trident Park in Blackburn, takes on the role of Bowker BMW and MINI group general sales manager. He will lead, support and assist six new and used car sales managers across both Blackburn and Preston.

The management team has also been bolstered by the addition of Craig Stephenson, who brings 14 years of automotive retail experience to the role of new car sales manager at Bowker BMW in Blackburn.

Chris Eccles, Bowker Motor Group director, said: "By restructuring our sales team we can focus our award-winning customer experience across both sites. 

"Richard’s new role continues his long career with Bowker Motor Group and reflects his deep understanding of automotive retail. He has won awards and established himself as one of the most talented and well-respected automotive sales professionals in the region.

“The team has already worked together for a number of years. And, now, with Craig joining at Bowker Blackburn, we have an exciting group of ambitious professionals to lead our car sales post-lockdown."
