That was until he was keen to further develop his motoring skills and knowledge and applied for the position of local business executive within the company’s expanding Business Centre located on Yarm Road.

Ron Homan, business centre manager at the Ford Stockton dealership, said: “Craig’s experience within the motor industry made him the ideal candidate for the role.  He is a quick learner, as well as being dedicated and committed to providing the highest level of customer service.”

The aim of the Business Centre is to deliver the ultimate service for fleet managers of both car and commercial vehicles.  The dedicated five-strong team has specialist expertise which reflects individual business requirements, whether they be contract hire, corporate fleet, SMEs, rental or the public sector.

As local business executive, Craig will be responsible for assisting and advising customers from a cross section of businesses about the various and most suitable options available, model specifications, leasing arrangements and financing fleet vehicles.

Craig said: “I am delighted to have been given the opportunity to learn about the fleet side of the business, which will also allow me to expand my product knowledge across the company’s extensive portfolio of marques, including Ford, Kia, Mazda, SEAT and Mitsubishi. 

“It is an excellent opportunity for me and I am grateful to have been given the chance to broaden my skills and knowledge.”

Prior to joining Jennings Motor Group, Craig spent five years working as a sales executive for another motor dealer and prior to that, spent time as a football coach with Darlington Football in the Community.

Ron went on to say: “Over the years, the Business Centre has forged good working relationships with a wide variety of businesses from one-man operations to multi-national companies, as a result of being able to offer competitive deals, tailor-made finance packages and an award-winning customer service.  We look forward to future success as the business continues to expand and develop.”

Jennings Motor Group also operates a Business Centre at its Eslington Park dealership in Gateshead, where a dedicated team is on hand to provide professional advice to both local and national businesses.
