Daniel Takes the Helm at Mercedes-Benz Marshall Truck & Van

Daniel Stone has recently been promoted to Head of Mercedes-Benz Commercial Vehicles at Marshall Motor Group, coinciding with the beginning of construction work on a new £4-million dealership in Southampton.

The development takes place on the Nursling Industrial Estate which is close to the company’s established 24-hour service centre.
The dealer is also preparing to offer vans from Marshall’s Mercedes-Benz of Portsmouth passenger car outlet on the Portsmouth Motor Park. A section of the showroom is set up for three vans with approval for another 15-20 used examples being displayed outside. Marshall Truck & Van represents Mercedes-Benz in Dorset, most of Hampshire and parts of south London. The company will be selling and supporting award-winning Mercedes-Benz Trucks and Vans, as well as FUSO Canter light trucks. Daniel joined the Marshall Motor Group in 2014 to run Mercedes-Benz car dealerships in Chichester and Winchester as General Manager. Although his CV includes some light commercial vehicle experience, he is happy that his new job represents his first venture into the world of vans and trucks. “That’s one of the reasons I jumped at this opportunity. I was looking for a new challenge, and the idea of broadening my horizons by working in a completely different sector is tremendously exciting. Best of all, I’ve been able to achieve this change of career tack without having to leave the Marshall Group, and while keeping a Mercedes-Benz star above the door.” He also added, “I’ve inherited a fantastic team of colleagues, many of whom have worked for this business under previous owners. Several of my senior managers have chalked-up decades of loyal service and accumulated a huge amount of technical knowledge, which will be an invaluable resource to me.”
