On 2nd May 2014, six days before completing his 17th year with Hillendale Land Rover, Lee sold the entire share capital of Hillendale Group to Vertu Motors plc in a multi-million pound transaction, along with the assets and trade of Image Red Group and associated properties.
Hillendale was formerly part of Preston’s Group where he was Managing Director before the MBO in August 2006. He carried on as Managing Director for the Preston family until August 2007 when the BMW business was sold to Lloyd BMW.
One of the largest Land Rover Dealerships in the UK and an authorised Jaguar Service Centre, Lee delivered a first class reputation for Customer Service, winning many awards along the way.
Lee is tremendously proud of the charitable work he has been involved in over the years, for local communities – and looks forward to continuing this work in the months and years ahead.
