Chairman Michael Smyth, 80, founded this Crewe-based car dealer in 2003 and continues to lead the business alongside his three sons, David, 57, Peter, 54, and John, 52. The group now owns 23 dealerships, selling 14 brands across northwest England, Wales and the Midlands. Sales fell 4% to £748m in 2018, as uncertainty surrounding Brexit and the decline in sales of diesel cars in the UK affected the market.
