Jennings Ford expands its sales force

Posted on 13 Mar 2009

Jennings Ford in Gateshead has expanded its sales team with a new recruit.

Gareth Watson, 24, from Whickham, has joined the Eslington Park dealership as sales executive.

No stranger to the industry or the job, having worked in a similar role for the past four and a half years for another Ford dealer in the area, Gareth has already proved he’s got what it takes to be successful in sales.

Since joining JenningsFord only four weeks ago, the dedicated and ambitious individual has managed to secure a total of 20 sales, which includes a combination of new and used motors.

“I’ve always enjoyed working in sales and when the opportunity came up to work for one of the region’s largest and longest established motor dealers, I jumped at the chance,” said Gareth.

Initially, Gareth embarked on a Business Studies degree at Northumbria University, but after a short period decided the course simply wasn’t for him and started looking for a job in the motor industry.

Gareth added; “The course just wasn’t for me and I’ve always had a burning ambition to work with motors. It was the best move in my career.”

Welcoming the latest recruit on board, John Wake, sales manager at JenningsFord in Gateshead, said;

“Gareth’s enthusiasm, ambition and overall confidence were evident at the interview. He is a committed individual who will continue to succeed in sales.”
