That was until he fancied a change from selling cars to commercial vehicles, and landed himself a job at Jennings Motor Group’s Gateshead-based Ford Transit Centre.

Gregg said: “I was ready for a change and I haven’t had any experience on the commercial side of the motoring business, so I was delighted to secure a position in that field at Jennings Ford’s Transit Centre.”

Working as part of a six-strong team, Gregg will be responsible for selling the new Ford commercial vehicle model line-up, in addition to quality used commercial vehicles to customers in order to contribute towards achieving monthly and quarterly sales objectives.

Other aspects of the commercial sales executive role includes liaising with existing and potential customers, processing orders, delivering vehicles to customers within the allocated timescale, attending regular training courses to keep up-to-speed with new model launches and the overall Ford commercial vehicle product range, in addition to ensuring the company’s award-winning customer service is delivered at all times.

Welcoming Gregg on board, Eric Vickers, commercial sales manager at the group’s Gateshead-based Transit Centre, said: “Gregg has a wealth of experience and knowledge in the industry already, which made him the ideal candidate for the job.”

Jennings Ford’s Transit Centre in Gateshead sells the entire Ford commercial vehicle range, including the Fiesta van, Transit Connect, Transit Courier, Tourneo Connect, Transit Van, Transit Custom, Transit mini-bus, Transit Tipper, Transit chassis cab and Ranger.

The group also operates at Ford Transit Centre at its supersite on Cargo Fleet Lane in Middlesbrough.
