Brian has spent a long and successful career in Industry and decided to join Tempest in 2006 to help out with the problems caused by MG-Rovers demise. Friarsgate, as the business was then known, suffered like many other dealers from the manufacturers collapse. But Friarsgate was different. It had a huge loyal following of very satisfied customers and a hard working, highly skilled and dedicated staff. Brian saw this and decided to stay and invest in the future of the dealership which now holds the Ford franchise.
