Mark Robinson - Managing Director

Originally founded as Meridian Motor Group with two Toyota Centres, Mark Robinson has successfully and carefully invested in the group since it began in 2003. With a passion for customer service and commitment to excellence, Mark has led the company through significant growth. Vantage now operates 24 dealerships across Yorkshire, Lancashire and the West Midlands and represents seven leading brands including: Toyota, Lexus, Citroën, Honda, Hyundai, Kia and ŠKODA.

With a wealth of experience in the motor industry and working with major PLCs, Mark's knowledge and drive to succeed has helped to build Vantage into a profitable business, that attracts the best talent to the industry and now employs over 650 team members. Building strong relationships with our manufacturer partners is what Mark does best, and he sits on a number of national committees to help the brands we represent better understand what our customers need and want.

"As Managing Director, my role is to nurture and progress the entirety of the Vantage business, and to make sure that we are focused on delivering the best results and experiences for our customers, our team members and for our business. I am driven by a commitment to providing the highest standard of service to our customers, and to inspire this progressive thinking across the group."

"I'd like to personally thank each and every one of our customers, many of whom have been returning to us year after year. I always enjoy being able to meet some of you on my visits to the Vantage centres."

Mark's passion for the motor industry isn't just vocational, and even with all our centres he finds the time to pursue his love of Motorsport. With roots in both Lancashire and North Yorkshire, Mark also likes to give back and is heavily involved in the community including a number of local charities and organisations.
