There’s a new addition to the team at Jennings Mitsubishi, part of the award-winning Jennings Motor Group, and he’s no stranger to the company.

Loyal and dedicated employee, Robert Flintoft, 48, from Stainton, near Middlesbrough, has transferred from the group’s Ford dealership in Stockton, to take on the role of sales executive/Motability specialist at the new Mitsubishi dealership in Middlesbrough.

Robert has been a loyal member of staff for more than 24 years, during which time he has gained vast experience and knowledge in the industry having worked in Motability, retail sales and for a period of time, as a deputy business manager.

When the group’s Mitsubishi branch on Cargo Fleet Lane became accredited as a Motability dealer, Robert was the perfect candidate to take over as the new Motability specialist.

Robert said: “This is an exciting challenge for me.  Not only am I looking forward to selling the wide range of high quality Mitsubishi vehicles to retail customers, but I am also looking forward to providing a professional service to customers who are eligible to purchase a vehicle through the Motability scheme, in addition to building and developing a loyal customer database.”

The Motability range available at Jennings Mitsubishi includes the all-new super-mini Mirage, the ASX crossover, the Outlander PHEV plug-in hybrid SUV and the  Outlander diesel SUV.
