Dedicated duo are perfect candidates for job in sales at Jennings

Posted on 05 Mar 2010

Jennings Ford in Sunderland has strengthened its sales team with two new recruits.

Michael Beck, 36, and Chris Robson, 32, both from Sunderland, have joined the Riverside Road dealership, just off Wessington Way, as sales executives.

In their new role, the duo will be working as part of an eight strong sales team, responsible for selling new and used cars to customers across Wearside, contributing towards achieving monthly and quarterly sales objectives, liaising with existing and potential customers, in addition to processing orders and ensuring vehicles are prepared for delivery to customers.

Michael joins the region’s main Ford dealer with 21 years’ experience in the motor industry, having worked for 19 loyal years in sales at a used car centre in Sunderland, prior to working for a franchise in Sunderland for the last two years.

He said; “I’ve always had a passion for cars and from a very early age I wanted to get under the bonnet to see how the mechanics worked, I was a typical car enthusiast.”

He added; “I am very much a people person and enjoy meeting different people, which is the best part of the job for me.”

Meanwhile, Chris joins the JenningsFord branch in Sunderland after spending the past three years working in a similar role for other motor dealers in the area, prior to spending nine years as a telesales representative for Royal Mail.

Chris said, “This is a fantastic opportunity for me to progress my career within the motor industry and a challenge I am very much looking forward to.”

Already the latest additions to the team are proving they’ve got what it takes having successfully sold a combined total of 30 cars over a period of just under four weeks.

Paul Beadling, sales manager at Jennings Ford in Sunderland, said; “Michael’s extensive knowledge and experience combined with Chris’s determination and ambition to succeed, made them perfect candidates for the vacancies.”
