This week we had the pleasure of talking with Johnny Fusco, the General Manager of Fusco Vehicle Sales. Founded by his father, Co Down entrepreneur Damian Fusco over 20 years ago, Fusco Vehicle Sales has experienced rapid growth in recent years. Their 3 acre site in Balloo Way in Bangor where they can stock up to 250 vehicles and employ 15+ staff is a far cry from the 4 car pitch they began with.
Johnny has grown up in the business, serving his time since the age of 17 in various roles, from administrator/telephonist, to sales executive, marketing manager, and progressing naturally to his current position as General Manager.
We asked Johnny some pressing questions to find out more about what makes him tick!
