Clive Brook

Clive started as an apprentice technician in the motor industry before joining a Volvo dealership. During Clive’s 11 years at Harraps he helped take the business from 1 Volvo Dealership to 5 and became the UK’s 2nd largest Volvo dealer, selling over 2,000 new Volvos per year.

In 2008 the opportunity arose to do an MBO of the Volvo business which was far from the ideal time to start a new venture. Clive struggled through the next few years during the course of which he bought out the other members of the MBO team. Now the company has 2 Volvo dealerships in Bradford and Huddersfield. In addition to the sale of new and used cars, there is a substantial repair and parts business and the business is forecasting sales of £57m in 2019.
