Jennings Ford has strengthened its sales team with a new recruit who is no stranger to the industry.

Stephen Batchelor, 47, from Walker in Newcastle, has joined the Riverside Road dealership in Sunderland, as sales executive.

With more than 21 years’ sales experience in the motor industry, having worked in similar roles at a number of dealerships across the region, Stephen is feeling confident about his future at Jennings Ford.

Stephen said; “Motors has always been in my blood. My father worked as a mechanic and for as long as I can remember, I always wanted to work in the industry.”

“Not being technically minded, I ended up working in sales, but it’s a job I’ve always enjoyed and it always gives me a great deal of job satisfaction.”

As sales executive, Stephen will be responsible for working as part of an 8-strong sales team selling new and used cars to customers across Wearside, in order to meet monthly sales objectives set out by Ford Motor Company.

David Walker, general sales manager at JenningsFord in Sunderland, said; “The experience and knowledge Stephen has gained over the years, made him the ideal candidate for the post.”

The whole Ford range is available to test drive at the Sunderland dealership, including the all-new Fiesta and all-new Ka models, which are proving to be a huge success. Other models include the Focus, Mondeo, Galaxy, S-MAX, C-MAX and Fusion.
