Andrew Gee

Andrew Gee, 53, has been appointed chief financial officer of Bowker Transport.

Gee (pictured) joins with more than 20 years of financial experience including boardroom roles with JJB Sports, Dave Whelan Sports, HIMOR Group and most recently Lewis’s Home Retail (TJ Hughes).

It is the first time a key position has been created with roles at both the separate Lancashire businesses that trade under the Bowker family name.

He said: “This is an exciting role, made more fascinating by the fact that it spans two of Lancashire’s most famous family businesses.

"There is a significant opportunity to identify synergies between the businesses, and I believe that will contribute to their continued success.”

“Only 18 months ago, Bowker Transport acquired Potter Logistics. And the Motor Group’s strategy for investment in new dealerships continues with the building the new Porsche Centre in Preston. There’s plenty to do and many reasons to be excited for the future.”
