Our Strategy

Overview Of The Business

Vertu Motors was formed in late 2006 to acquire and consolidate UK motor retail businesses. A senior management team, with a wealth of experience within the sector, was put in place and on 27th March 2007 the Group acquired the 13th largest motor retailer in the United Kingdom, Bristol Street Motors. Vertu Motors is currently the 3rd largest motor retailer in the United Kingdom, when annualised impact of acquisitions is included.

The group's strategy is to grow shareholder value by:

  • Growth - scale and brand.

    To grow as a major scaled franchised dealership group and to develop our portfolio of Manufacturer partners, whilst being mindful of industry development trends, to maximise long-run returns.

  • Digitalisation.

    To be at the forefront of digitalisation in the sector, delivering a cohesive 'bricks and clicks' strategy:

    • Optimise our omnichannel development bringing bricks and clicks together
    • Digitalise aftersales processes to improve customer service and efficiency
    • Reduce the cost base of the Group by delivering efficiency through the use of technology
    • Utilise data driven decision making to generate enhanced returns
  • Colleague & Customer focus.

    To develop and motivate the Group's colleagues to ensure operational excellence is delivered constantly across the business.

  • Ancillary businesses.

    To develop ancillary businesses to add revenue and returns that complement the core business.
