Forster moves up

David Forster has been promoted to the new role of general manager at Orwell Motorcycles based in Ipswich.

Forster, 34, has been with the business for nearly 17 years and started as an assistant in the parts, clothing and accessories department.

“I like to think I know a little bit about the business now,” Forster joked.

“I’m very excited about my new role as general manager. It’s a great opportunity to have more input into moving the business forward to benefit Orwell Motorcycles and its loyal customers.”

Orwell Motorcycles Director Dave Willis spends much of his time in the office, looking after running the business and finances, while fellow director Rob Walters oversees the workshop and is often out of the business delivering motorbikes.

Willis said: “Rob and I are not always able to be as involved in the day-to-day running of the business as we would like, so we need someone who can make sure everything runs smoothly and keep us in the loop about what we need to know.

In his new role, from 1 July, Forster will be taking an overview of the day-to-day running of the business, working closely with sales manager Mark Trench and Daniel Williams who takes over the manager’s role in the parts, clothing and accessories department.

Williams is the longest-serving member of the Orwell team, having worked for the company for 23 years, and has loads of knowledge and experience in the parts, clothing and accessories side of the business.

Orwell are also taking on two more assistants in the parts department to replace Williams and to enable them to have an extra person on the shop floor.
