Having a Father who has dedicated the majority of his life to cars and racing, it was inevitable that Leo Mansell would take on the role as Managing Director of the Mansell Collection working closely with Nigel as Chairman, they have built the business to what it is today.
In 2015 The Mansell Collection took on the Mitsubishi dealership franchise and exceeded expectations by winning Mitsubishi Dealer of the year which was a fantastic achievement for a relatively small dealer competing against the wider UK network. In 2017 Leo and his team were runners up for the same award and in 2017 were runners up for the Main Dealer Award. These accolades only serve to remind us of the sporting success the family have had over the years, with Nigel not only being the Formula F1 World Champion but also CART Indy Car Series Winner holding both titles simultaneously, so success is certainly in the blood and with Leo overseeing the day to day operations as Managing Director the business could only flourish.
In January 2018 The Mansell Collection took over the local Jersey Hyundai Franchise which has now been rebranded to Mansell Hyundai, the franchise was moved to the main First Tower site in Jersey in January 2019, however due to the popularity of the brand Leo had to take the decision to close the Mansell Museum, something that was a hard decision to make, ‘The museum has been a huge success and we are extremely proud of what we have achieved here, however our decision is to now take the car dealership forward and utilise this space, we have plans to relocate the museum and will keep all the fans updated as this is an important part of our heritage’.
Leo now takes a more strategic role in the business with day to day Operations being overseen by the Operations Director and General Manager. However for Leo and the Mansell team the objective is still the same as it was in 2015, to offer the best value for money cars, along with exceptional customer service and continue to remain in pole position!
