Business Development Manager appointed at Wessex

DANNY O’Donovan from Pontypridd has this month (May, 2016) been appointed as the new Business Development Manager for our Renault dealership in Newport.  

In his new position, the 56-year-old will be responsible for fleet sales at the dealership on Newport Retail Park and will build relationships with businesses in the city.

The father-of-two said: “I joined Wessex Garages because I was very keen to work with a forward thinking and proactive business and I was attracted to its track record.

“I can’t wait to really get stuck into my role and meet current and potential customers in the area. Renault’s vehicle range is highly competitive in terms of price, total cost of ownership and CO2 emissions and I am excited to expand and strengthen Wessex Garages’ fleet business in Newport.”

Danny has more than 30 years of experience in the motor industry. His previous roles include being a Business Centre Manager for five years at a Renault dealership in Cardiff and four years working for Vans Direct as a Sales Manager and Process Manager.

Andy Provis, our Group Fleet Manager, said: “I would like to welcome Danny to the fleet team at Wessex Garages. He has a wealth of experience and will be a real asset to the team at Newport.”

In his spare time Danny enjoys playing his guitar, watching Cardiff City and exploring new places to eat out.
