Business & Finance

I am delighted to welcome The Ridgeway Group as a Business Member of The Vintage Magazine, because we have been looking for a suitable partner in this sector for some time now, and when I met the Chairman, David Newman, and spoke to him about his business, I realised that I was talking to a ‘kindred spirit’!

BMW VW MINI AUDI MERCEDESI say this because he is passionate about what he does, which is to offer a very personal service to his customers, and he instils this ethos into everyone of his 1000+ employees.

The Ridgeway Group’s story has been one of continual growth and expansion and it is now ranked as one of the Top 20 Largest Motor Retail Groups in the UK and listed as 91st on the latest Sunday Times HSBC Top Track 250 league table of Britain’s leading mid-market private companies.
