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.”
