Commenting on the appointment, David Thomas, Managing Director of Volvo Cars Ireland said: “The expansion of the Volvo retail network reflects the growth and commitment of the Volvo Cars brand in Ireland. It is important that we have representation in Galway so that our customers have a convenient location to purchase and service their Volvo Cars. The Connolly Motor Group are well regarded in Connaught for their high standard of customer excellence, and we look forward to working closely together in the years to come.
He added: “It is a very exciting time to join Volvo Cars, last year we revealed our latest fully electric flagship SUV - the Volvo EX90, marking the start of a new era for our company. We have ambitious targets for 2023 and the years ahead, and as a partner, Connolly Motor Group will help us deliver on these.”
