Windsor Motor Group has announced the appointment of Peter Nicholson as its new managing director.

Mr Nicholson takes over as MD of the group as it also announced the creation of 20 jobs with the opening of a new dealership in Dublin, its 15th nationwide.

The group, which has an annual turnover of €200m, now employs more than 300 people at its dealerships across the country in Dublin, Wicklow, Meath and Galway.

The motor group represents Nissan, Opel, Peugeot and Mazda, and sells more than 9,000 new and used vehicles, as well as servicing and repairing about 25,000 vehicles a year.

Mr Nicholson joined Windsor in 1992 and has previously held roles as group finance and insurance director and dealer principal at Windsor Airside Nissan.

"The new Windsor Long Mile Nissan dealership is a key part of our strategic plan to expand nationwide and to lead the way in delivering a modern motor sales and aftersales customer-focused experience," said Mr Nicholson.

"Our state-of-the-art showrooms put technology at the heart of the retail experience, presenting a modern, spacious, open and friendly environment, where customers are better informed and empowered to make the right vehicle choice," he added.
