Motorpoint hires Jordan Dean as general manager

Former trainee Jordan Dean has been appointed general manager of Motorpoint in Burnley.

He will hold responsibility for the running of the branch's customer service, operations and sales. He will oversee a team of 70 and will be supported by a five-strong management team.

Jordan is the first of the company's general managers to start as a sales trainee, and at 30 years old he becomes one of the youngest in the company's history to hold the role.

Motorpoint Burnley, located close to J9 of the M65, launched in November 2001 following a multi-million pound investment in the ten acre site. Jordan joined eight years ago and has since worked a variety of roles, most recently as sales manager.

He said: "I had always dreamt of running my own branch when I joined Motorpoint in my early twenties but I never imagined for one minute it would be in my home town. I couldn’t be prouder."

“We have a fantastic team here in Burnley who provide the perfect platform from which to further establish ourselves as East Lancashire’s Car Buyers Champion offering award-winning levels of choice, value and service to our customers.”

Jon Grace, head of sales at Motorpoint, added: “Jordan has worked in Burnley for eight years and during that time has lead the sales team from strength to strength.

"Outside of his operational achievements Jordan has also been instrumental in developing some of the tools and systems that are now in place across all our sites and as one of our most successful managers he is ready to take the next step in his leadership career.”
