Top Track 250

This Exeter-based company runs four Mercedes-Benz dealerships in the southwest. Remote valuations and part-exchange, free 48-hour delivery and unaccompanied test drives were among the measures it introduced to keep customers and staff safe when it reopened in June after the lockdown. Chairman Anthony Wickins, 69, founded the business in 1977; his son Michael, 49, is managing director. Profits grew 21% to £8.1m in 2019.
