“Chorley Group have achieved an amazing amount in the last five years winning a number of a high-profile awards and we’re extremely proud of that. 

“We’ve weathered the current storm a lot better than many and have come out in a strong position that we now want to build and expand on.” 

Adam Turner, currently group sales and marketing director said: “Myself and Pauline have always worked very closely in the business and I’m thrilled we’ve still got her vast knowledge and experience within the company so we can continue to drive forwards. 

“I’m very excited about this new chapter for the group and I’m looking forward to continuing and building on the successes we have achieved through what is going to be an interesting period. 

“This year has been challenging for everyone, but we have such a strong team here at Chorley Group we were able to pull together, adapt where necessary, and ensure we stayed at the top of our game.” 

The management restructure extends to a new appointment with Sue Corkin joining as group operations manager having previously worked for Nissan GB. Sue will be involved in all day to day operations, working closely with the board and the current management team to try and improve operational efficiencies throughout. 

Adam added: “Sue joins us with a vast wealth of experience in both the manufacturer and dealership world and we’re certain she will be a huge asset to the group. 

“It’s important for our continued growth, and to ensure we stay ahead of our competitors, that we appoint the best candidates and Sue certainly ticks that box.” 

Sue said: “This is a fantastic opportunity for me, and I jumped at the chance of working for Chorley Group. 

“Chorley Group is a destination brand for many people in the industry but with such low staff turnover roles rarely become available. They have a great team, and everyone is extremely passionate, believes in what they do and are driven to achieve the best for their clients. To be part of that every day is inspiring and I can’t wait to play my part through this exciting next chapter of growth.”
