David Goldthorpe, 45, who has been with Arthurs for three years, has taken on the role of General Manager of all three outlets.
This follows the departure of previous general manager Steve Hughes to a large car dealership in the Middle East.
David said today how delighted he was to be promoted to this position and re-join the Vauxhall brand having previously spent many years with Vauxhall at various locations in the UK.
He explained how he enjoyed working for Arthurs and that his main goal was to continue the growth of the business by focusing heavily on giving customers the highest levels of customer satisfaction with Arthurs having received the prestigious ‘Customer Excellence Award’ for the last four years.
“The team at Arthurs is very proud to be the market leader for new car sales in the Oswestry and Newtown area and I intend to work closely with the team to further increase new car sales in the future.
“It is an exciting time to be re-joining the Vauxhall brand with a pipeline of new models set to be launched, the first of which being the Mokka X which is due in the next few weeks.
“Whilst working for Arthurs I have been extremely impressed with the work ethic of all employees and one of my objectives is to ensure that every member of the team has fun and enjoys their time at work as well as giving customers the very best customer experience that is possible.”
Arthurs, one of the oldest businesses in Oswestry, has been established since 1923 and is owned by a local family which took on the Vauxhall franchise in the town in 1940.
Arthurs opened their Vauxhall dealership in Newtown 10 years ago and, said David, this has been a ‘very successful’ dealership for both Vauxhall and the company.
He added: “I am really enthusiastic about continuing the Arthurs success, looking after staff and giving customers as great an experience as possible.”
