About Marshall Motor Holdings Plc

Company Overview

Marshall was founded in 1909 by Mr D.G. Marshall M.B.E. as a small chauffeur company in Cambridge with just two cars on the fleet. 

Today we are the 7th largest motor group in the UK. The Group operates 162 franchises representing 26 manufacturing brands in 37 different counties across England. We have a turnover of c. £3bn per annum and currently employ just over 5,000 colleagues. 

We have a clear vision “To be the UK’s Premier Automotive Retail Group.” To achieve our vision we have created a customer centric culture, as well as operating as a world class retailer who delivers retailing excellence so that we can be regarded as the employment destination in our sector. 

We recognised that our people would be at the heart of our success. As a result, in 2008 we launched our first Great Place to Work® survey to ensure we had independent governance of our colleague engagement measurement and have continued working with this programme ever since.
