Martin Green has headed up our Taunton dealership as General Manager for over six years. In this time the site has physically expanded both on location and with the construction of a separate LCV specialist centre just last year. Martin likes nothing more than spending time with his wife of thirty-two years, his sons and his grandson but does squeeze in a round of golf wherever possible.
