BMW UK has announced that Matt Bristow, general manager for corporate sales, will be leaving the company on 9 September to move to a role at BCA.
Bristow will join BCA as manufacturer sales director reporting to BCA sales director, Craig Purvey, and will take responsibility for BCA’s strategic relationships with manufacturer customers and their associated finance companies. He will also head up BCA’s manufacturer sales team.
Craig Purvey, sales director, BCA commented: “We are delighted to welcome Matt Bristow to BCA. He brings a wealth of experience and market knowledge to our sales team which will prove invaluable as we continue to secure significant new contracts in the manufacturer and captive finance sectors.”
