Tredegar man Andrew Davies has been appointed general sales manager of Motorpoint’s newest branch in Swansea.

The 35 year old, who has worked in a number of sales roles with the UK’s largest independent car retailer for the last six years, will oversee the 25-strong workforce in south west Wales.

Andrew, a recent graduate of the Motorpoint talent management programme, will be supported by Chris Brown, who assumes the role of general manager for both Swansea and the company’s existing branch in Newport.

Motorpoint, a Sunday Times Top 100 Company to Work for, has spent the last few months transforming a former B&Q in Swansea ready to officially open on Friday, January 3.

Andrew said: “I’m absolutely thrilled to have been appointed the general sales manager of our new branch and can’t wait along with the rest of the team to open our doors to the public.”

A father of three, Andrew represented Wales in 8 Ball Pool in his 20s. When not spending time with his young family, these days Andrew, who grew up in Tredegar, can often be found in his spare time climbing mountains such as Snowdon to raise money for charities such as MIND.
