Snows Motor Group has announced further changes to its hard-working management team, with the focus this time largely on its successful Toyota division.

Following news in January of a significant reshuffle involving six senior members of staff, four more promotions have been announced by the car dealership group, based in the south of England.

Simon Frith has stepped up to a new role as Head of Franchise for Toyota, Lexus, Mercedes-Benz Vans and VW Commercials. He was previously Franchise Manager for the same brands.

Graham Davis has been promoted from his role of Franchise Aftersales Manager (West) to the position of General Manager of Snows Toyota dealerships in Exeter and Honiton.

Chris Batey has been promoted from his role of Aftersales Manager, Toyota and Lexus Plymouth to the position of General Manager, Toyota Plymouth and Toyota Paignton.

And Gareth Taylor has been promoted from his role of Aftersales Manager, Snows Toyota Southampton to General Manager at the same dealership.

There’s also a new recruit to the company, Ray Gillman, who brings a wealth of experience and expertise to his role as General Manager of Snows Toyota dealerships in Waterlooville and Chichester.

Snows operates nine Toyota dealerships across southern England. The manufacturer is renowned for the quality and reliability of its cars, with clever hybrid technology a feature across much of the range.

Alex Domone, Chief Operating Officer at Snows Motor Group, said: ‘‘It’s again my pleasure to congratulate some of our most talented and hard-working managers on their promotions – and to welcome Ray Gillman to the business.

‘‘Snows are proud to provide active pathways for managers looking to grow within our company and this is supported through our Talent Management programme.’’

Snows Motor Group has undergone considerable expansion in recent years but remains a family-run business operating at the heart of the communities it serves in southern and south-west England.

The company operates almost 50 franchised car dealerships. As well as Toyota, it represents brands such as Kia, Mercedes-Benz and Vauxhall, plus five approved service centres and 12 used car centres, operating under the banner ‘Too Good To Auction’.
