A member of staff at Jennings Ford in Sunderland is heading to the bright city lights of London after placing in the Top 10 of a national award.
Gary Brown, 46, from Newcastle, has been cordially invited to the Motability Supplier Awards after selling over 210 cars in 2006 through the Motability scheme at the Group’s new Riverside Road dealership, just off Wessington Way in Sunderland.
The invitation is to join senior representatives from the Ford Motor Company at the award ceremony, which is taking place at the Royal Lancaster Hotel in London.
The award, which is presented on an annual basis, is in recognition of accredited motor dealers nationwide achieving high volume of sales.
With more than 20 years of experience within the Motability motoring industry, Gary said; “I’m delighted and honoured to have been invited to the award ceremony and to be representing the company at such a prestigious event as this, is a fantastic opportunity for me.”
He added; “As yet, I don’t know which position I have placed, but all will be revealed in due course.”
In addition to achieving outstanding sales, it’s also Gary’s detail to customer care that sets him apart from the competition.
Over the years, he has received hundreds of ‘thank-you’ cards from customers he has assisted on the road to freedom.
Gary went on to say; “Advising customers about the Motability options available and assisting towards getting them on the road to mobility, gives me a great deal of job satisfaction. I love it.”
