A career change has paid off for a member of staff at Jennings Motor Group, who is geared for future success after receiving his first promotion.

Awhes Khan, 29, from Stockton, has taken over as sales controller/business manager at the group’s new Mitsubishi dealership in Teesside.

The promotion for Awhes, whose original ambition was to become a solicitor after graduating with a law degree at Teesside University, has also resulted in a transfer from the group’s Kia dealership in Stockton where he has gained valuable experience working as a sales executive, to the new Mitsubishi franchise located on Cargo Fleet Lane in Middlesbrough.

“Despite graduating with a law degree, I have always been keen to work in a sales role within the motor industry,” said Awhes.

Securing a full-time job as a sales executive with another motor dealer based in Leeds, steered Awhes towards a completely new path in his career.

A few years later, when another opportunity arose in sales with Jennings Motor Group, Awhes just couldn’t let it pass him by.

Awhes went on to say; “I can honestly say, I haven’t looked back since deciding to change my career. 

“The promotion to sales controller/business manager is the next step on the career ladder and an excellent opportunity for me.”

The experience and knowledge Awhes has gained working as a sales executive over the years, will stand him in good stead in his new role as sales controller/business manager at the group’s new Mitsubishi dealership in Middlesbrough.
