Phil White steps down as Chairman at Vantage Motor Group after 18 years with the Business

Vantage Motor Group is today announcing that Phil White, Non Executive Chairman, will be stepping down from the Board in January 2024. Phil, former CEO of National Express Group and Chairman of Lookers, feels that now is the right time to hand over the full control and ownership of the Group to Tim Swindin, Chief Financial Officer, and Andrew Mallory, Chief Operations Officer. He joined the Vantage board in 2006 and will continue to act as an adviser to the board during 2024.

Phil White said “Our people at Vantage are the heart of our business and are well known in their local communities for how they serve our customers. I would like to thank them for all their support, especially in the more challenging times of recent years. Tim and Andrew have the drive and energy to build on this support to take Vantage into the future and continue to develop the business. I’m so sad at leaving the Group but it is the right thing to do as I approach my retirement.”

Andrew Mallory and Tim Swindin said “We would like to thank Phil for his huge contribution in making Vantage Motor Group the successful and respected business that it is today. We are excited about the future and can assure all colleagues, customers, manufacturer partners and suppliers that it will be business as usual at Vantage Motor Group for many years to come.”
