A loyal member of staff at Jennings Kia, part of the Jennings Motor Group, has transferred to take over the reins at the company’s latest dealership in Teesside.
Franchise manager, Steven Flack, 46, from Yarm, has moved from the group’s Jennings Kia dealership in Washington, Tyne and Wear to head the company’s new state-of-the-art Kia showroom on Concorde Way in Stockton-on-Tees.
Having worked for Jennings Motor Group for the past 23 years, the knowledge and experience Steven has gained over the past two decades, will contribute towards securing and increasing new and used car sales at the new Jennings Kia dealership.
Steven said; “I am delighted and looking forward to bringing the Kia brand, which offers high quality and competitively priced products, to the people of Teesside.”
Steven will be responsible for the day-to-day running of the dealership which will entail overseeing a team of 10 staff including a sales controller, business manager, sales executives, administration and valeting staff, in addition to being responsible for achieving monthly and quarterly sales objectives set out by Kia Motors and ensuring the highest level of customer service is delivered to customers at all times.
The new dealership which boasts an impressive 25-car indoor showroom and a 150-vehicle exterior display, houses the full range of Kia cars, offering customers high quality, attractive and stylish products at affordable prices. Each new Kia car also comes with the manufacturer’s market-leading seven-year warranty package.
Steven’s career with Jennings Motor Group started in 1991, when he was appointed as a sales executive at the group’s Ford dealership in Stockton. Over the years, he has worked his way up the ranks following a number of promotions to business manager, sales controller and sales/franchise manager.
He has also gained valuable experience and expanded his product knowledge after working at the group’s SEAT dealership in Middlesbrough and for a short period of time he also headed the internet department as internet sales manager, in addition to being franchise manager at Jennings Kia’s dealership in Washington.
Jennings Kia Teesside was officially opened by Paul Philpott, chief executive officer and president of Kia Motors (UK) Ltd, at a VIP launch event last month.
