William Armstrong

After 30 years in the family business, William Armstrong has decided to step down from his role in the Group.

After being diagnosed with his illness in 2010, and following treatment in the National Neurological Hospital in London, William is well on the road to recovery.

William's career at Armstrong's began in 1980 as a spray painter and included HGV Driver, Planner and Manager. He was appointed Director in 1995. William was instrumental in the development of the Group's dealership activities and was behind the successful move of Cumbria Truck Centre to it's current site in Longtown in 2010. As Fleet & Dealership Director, William took particular interest in the fleet and played a key role in developing business strategy.

Jennifer Whyberd, Managing Director (and William's sister) said "Everyone at Armstrong's was totally shocked when William fell ill and had to swiftly make changes to the business. Derek, Geof and I have worked closely with William for more than 30 years. Everyone is delighted to see him looking so much better. The Directors fully support his decision and wish him good health and every success in the future."
