Donnelly Group, Northern Ireland’s largest family-owned new and used vehicle retailer, has appointed company stalwart Paul Harvey as Land Rover Sales Manager at its new £6 million Jaguar Land Rover showroom in Dungannon.

Paul, who is from Lurgan, has over 20 years’ experience in the motor retail industry.

Having joined Donnelly Group in 2008 as a Sales Executive in Land Rover, Paul takes up this position almost a year after the company opened the impressive 50,000 sq. ft. luxury showroom

Paul will now be responsible for leading and managing the sales process and supporting a team of sales executives and business managers within the Land Rover team.

Of his appointment, Paul commented:

“Land Rover is a world-class luxury brand with state-of-the-art components. The entire range is simply superb and with the diverse choice of vehicles and attractive finance options available, there is something to suit every customer.

“The Donnelly Group has ensured a fantastic sales team is in place which not only reflects what the brand stands for – superior performance – but also a team that always puts our customers first, right from the point of sale through to our outstanding after sales care.

“It is an honour for me to be leading such a committed and dedicated team and I relish the opportunity to drive the success and growth of Donnelly Land Rover Dungannon.”

The Donnelly Jaguar Land Rover showroom based at Donnelly Group’s Head Office location on Moy Road Dungannon was opened earlier this year and was built around Jaguar Land Rover’s new corporate identity, which puts customers at the heart of the retail experience with exciting architectural innovation, and a stylish, eye-catching environment.

The luxurious lounge-style waiting area complete with a coffee bar and wi-fi creates an atmosphere which puts customers at ease as they browse the extensive range of luxury vehicles.

Paul concluded:

“We want our customers to have an enjoyable and memorable experience when they visit our showroom. Our colleagues are always on hand to give advice and offer help but equally we want customers to feel relaxed and have the opportunity to browse our extensive range at their leisure.”

The showroom hosts the entire range of new Land Rover vehicles, such as the bold and sophisticated Range Rover Evoque to the luxurious Range Rover Velar, Land Rover Discovery family, Range Rover Sport and range-topping Range Rover, as well as a full complement of Jaguar product.

The eagerly anticipated Land Rover Defender is also due to be unveiled to the world in the coming months and will be a great addition to the range available at Donnelly Land Rover Dungannon.

Dave Sheeran, Managing Director at Donnelly Group, said:

“Since the company’s establishment over 70 years ago, our ethos has always been to provide unrivalled service, value and choice to our loyal customers.

“Paul brings a wealth of expertise to the role from his many years’ of working within the motor industry making him the ideal candidate to manage our state-of-the-art Land Rover showroom.

“His significant focus on customer experience and maintaining great relationships with his customers, reaffirms the Donnelly Group’s values and our commitment to our customers and he will be a great ambassador for both the Donnelly Group and the Land Rover brand.”
