“Over the years, he has gained vast knowledge and experience regarding the many products and services we offer, in addition to internal company systems, policies and procedures, which made him ideally suited for the new role.”

Colin’s career with Jennings Motor Group began 27 years ago when he was appointed as a sales executive at the group’s Yarm Road branch in Stockton.

He soon started working his way up the ranks with his first promotion to deputy business manager, this was followed by a second promotion to sales controller and in 2009 he took on the role of sales manager at the Jennings Ford branch in Middlesbrough.

Colin said; “This is a fantastic opportunity for me and I am delighted with the promotion to general sales manager.”

Over the years, Colin has witnessed a number of changes not only within the company, but also the motor industry as new technologies have been introduced, developed and continue to advance.

He added; “I started working as a sales executive in the late eighties when Jennings solely operated Ford dealerships.  Over the years, the company has expanded significantly following the implementation of on-going investment programmes in the region.

“Another significant change has been the introduction of new technology, which is constantly improving.  Cars being manufactured today are a lot safer to drive, economical to run and environmentally friendly.”

Prior to joining the company, Colin spent 18 months working as a Housing Benefit Officer for Stockton Borough Council.

Jennings Motor Group is one of the longest established motor dealers in the North East region, having first registered as a limited company in 1912.

Today, the group operates three Ford dealerships, including a Ford Direct site and two Ford Transit Centres, in addition to two Kia franchises and a Mazda, SEAT and Mitsubishi branch.
