Derek Passant, 58, runs Greenhous Franchise, which operates eight car, van and truck dealerships nationwide, while Kerry Finnon, 53, heads Smart Fleet Solutions, which runs four vehicle refurbishment centres across the UK. Turnover remained steady during 2017 at £1.1bn, though profits were down 25% to £5m as margins on new and used car sales fell.
