Thurlow Nunn has appointed operations supervisor William Tew as its new managing director and Ashleigh Lewis as its chief monetary officer.

Tew, who was an current director on the Cambridgeshire-based enterprise, assumes the MD position following James Thurlow’s transfer right into a non-executive chairman position with the Thurlow Nunn Group of Corporations alongside a brand new position as managing director of its agricultural division, Thurlow Nunn Standen.

Thurlow mentioned that Tew had demonstrated his ardour for the enterprise and for steady enchancment, including that he had already “gained the respect of his colleagues and made a invaluable contribution to the improved efficiency of Thurlow Nunn”.

Lewis turns into finance director right now (March 1) as Philip Addinall takes his retirement from the enterprise.

Addinall had been with the corporate since 2008 and had made “a big impression on the group”, an announcement mentioned.

Lewis joins the enterprise having spent 20 years with Moto Hospitality.

James Thurlow mentioned: “We have been impressed by Ashleigh’s open communication abilities, her finance and business background and her invaluable expertise in retail.”

Tew is alleged to be already planning the creation of recent roles inside Thurlow Nunn’s car division to help the fast funding into digitalisation, most notably promoting a digital gross sales graduate programme by means of which he hopes to draw new entrants into the trade. 

Tew mentioned: “Up to now 12 months we’ve got seen some important modifications in Automotive Retailing with the accelerated onset of digital actions.

“Thurlow Nunn intends to make sure that they supply the very best omnichannel buyer expertise from it’s 11 franchised places, and two non-franchised.”
