THE head of business at one of Nissan’s newest dealerships has spoken of the pride he feels in his team after lockdown.
Just over a year ago, Marshall Motor Group opened the doors to an all-new dealership in Lincoln housing sales, aftersales, service and used car facilities together in a modern, state-of-the-art facility.
Little did anyone at Marshall know that COVID-19 would result in the temporary closure of 117 sites across 23 brands and 28 counties, with its Lincoln Nissan operation being one of them.
Despite the significant challenges presented by the virus, David Crooks, head of business at the dealership, said: “I am extremely proud of my team for adapting to keep the business active during the pandemic via online, telephone and fleet sale operations.
“Now we are back together – socially distanced of course – allowing the new site to shine like never before.”
Marshall Motor Group’s chief executive, Daksh Gupta, has paid tribute to staff across the whole company, describing them as “highly engaged and professional”.
He added that they had gone “above and beyond during this difficult period” and said he was “incredibly proud of their commitment and dedication”.
Marshall Motor Group runs two Nissan outlets, both of which are in Lincolnshire. The other one is 25 miles to the south of Lincoln, in Grantham.
