Mark returns to his roots

Posted on 19 Sep 2007

There’s a new face at JenningsFord – and he’s no stranger to the company or the product.

Following a four-year break after working as a prison officer at Pentonville Prison based in London, 37-year-old, Mark Nicholson has returned to the North East to take up a job in sales at JenningsFord’s dealership in Sunderland.

Prior to joining the prison service, Mark was employed in a sales role at JenningsFord’s Yarm Road dealership based in Stockton.

“Although I thoroughly enjoyed working in the motor industry, at the time when I was offered the job in the prison service, I felt it was an opportunity I couldn’t miss out on,” said Mark.

Despite the four-year break, Mark was keen to move back to Silksworth in Sunderland to be nearer to his family and friends, but first he needed to find suitable employment.”

“I wanted to move back to the North East, but I needed to find a job and I was keen to get back into the motor industry.”

Taking advice from his brother, David, who is also employed in sales at JenningsFord’s branch in Middlesbrough, Mark put a call in to his previous boss, David Walker to enquire about the possibility of a vacancy in sales at the group’s Riverside Road dealership in Sunderland.

“It’s great to be back in the North East and to be working for JenningsFord again is an added bonus.”

Mark’s new role involves selling new and used cars to motorists in and around Wearside, in addition to liaising with existing and potential customers.

David Walker, general sales manager at JenningsFord in Sunderland, said: “Mark is an asset to the sales team, it’s good to have him back.”
