This week’s episode of Business Growth Secrets features special guest, Robert Forrester – CEO of Vertu Motors.
Robert is the CEO of Vertu Motors PLC, the 5th largest automotive retailer in the UK. He is also a member of the Economic Growth Board of the Confederation of British Industry and Vice-President of the Automotive Fellowship International. Robert trained as a chartered accountant with Arthur Anderson. The work gave him his first taste of the motor trade, but he soon found himself in property investment as a director at Brookhouse in Manchester, before a near-death experience provided the catalyst for a move. As he recovered, he decided to move to the north east of England and landed the job of finance director at legendary car dealership Reg Vardy. By the time the dealership was sold to listed rival Pendragon in 2006, he was managing director. Finding himself surplus to requirements, he teamed up with fellow Reg Vardy executives to build a new player in the UK car dealership sector, headquartered in Newcastle. Vertu was launched with a £25 million placing on the Alternative Investment Market. Since flotation in December 2006, the Group has established itself as a major player
in the United Kingdom automotive retail sector. The Group currently operates 143 franchised sales outlets and 4 non-franchised sales operations, representing 32 manufacturers, from 116 locations across the UK. Robert picked his wife’s Scottish-sounding maiden name as Vertu’s trading brand north of the Border, Macklin Motors.
