Bristol's plans for future By CIARA MCAULEY

The owners of Bristol Cars - Frazer-Nash - has made two key appointments to help move the company forward; appointing a new chairman of the firm’s advisory board, and a new general manager.

The Kensington-based firm has gone back to its roots by signing up the son of the man who founded the company in 1945 as the Chairman of the firm’s Advisory Board Sir George White. Following in his Father’s footsteps, part of Sir George’s role will be to assist Frazer-Nash as it works on new designs and cars for Bristol Cars.

Also Patron of the Bristol Owners Cub, and BOC Trust, Sir George will be joined as a consultant on Bristol’s Advisory Board by Lady White, a successful artist and designer, where they have already helped to shape deigns for a new showroom.

Sir George will also be working alongside a new General Manager for Bristol Cars, Julian Ramshaw. Ramshaw’s initial main focus will be revitalising the sales and servicing divisions based at the iconic Kensington showroom, where there has been a large investment following the takeover by Frazer-Nash in April 2011.
