Lancashire-based Bowker Motor has appointed Andrew Gee as chief financial officer.

He takes on the new role for both Bowker Motor Group and Bowker Transport.  Gee has 20 years of financial experience, including boardroom roles with JJB Sports and most recently TJ Hughes.

Bowker Motor Group employs over 400 people at sites throughout Lancashire, representing BMW, Mini and Maserati and a number of motorcycle franchises.

Gee said: “This is an exciting role, made more fascinating by the fact that it spans two of Lancashire’s most famous family businesses.

“There is a significant opportunity to identify synergies between the businesses, and I believe that will contribute to their continued success.

The strategy for investment in new Dealerships continues with the building the new Porsche Centre in Preston. There’s plenty to do and many reasons to be excited for the future.”

Bowker Motor Group chief executive Paul Bowker said: “Both Bowker businesses already share the best of Lancashire family entrepreneurial spirit. So, it makes perfect sense to jointly appoint a Chief Financial Officer of Andrew’s calibre. He has an excellent track record working with other renowned businesses throughout his career and we are delighted he is joining us at such an exciting time.”

WH Bowker is rated 81 in the Motor Trader Top 200 with annual turnover of £164.5m.
