Davock succeeds Davis as director of commercial vehicles at Manheim
Manheim has appointed Matthew Davock as director of
commercial vehicles, replacing James Davis who has moved to the role of customer
insight and strategy director for commercial vehicles.
Previously head of LCV, Mr Davock had, said Manheim, been
instrumental in growing the commercial side of the business and would continue
to cement the company’s position as the UK’s number one commercial vehicle
auction company in his new role.
A lifelong employee of Manheim, Mr Davock has been with the
Cox Automotive business for more than 20 years, joining from school to work
with Manheim’s Haydock auction centre, and working his way up to join the
national commercial vehicle team as head of LCV in 2014.
During his career, Manheim, said he had helped steer the
business to its market-leading position in the commercial vehicle sector,
including launching a dedicated CV selling centre in Shepshed, introducing a
second lane at the business’s Gloucester branch and adding a new sale to the
Haydock auction programme. He was also instrumental in supporting the
development of Manheim’s online commercial vehicle offering.
Peter Bell, managing director of Manheim, said: “Matthew has
shown exceptional skills in his role as head of LCV, and together he and James
have strived to achieve Manheim’s position as the clear market-leader.”
“At Manheim, we take pride in supporting our
team members to achieve their career goals. I am delighted that Matthew will
now bring his expertise and knowledge to this new appointment and look forward
to working with him on a strategy that will continue to build on our success in
the CV sector as we head into 2019 and beyond.”
