In his new role, the time-served panel repair technician who has accrued more than 29 years’ experience in the industry, will work as part of a nine-strong team at the dealership, where he will be responsible for assessing damage to vehicles, removing and repairing damaged panels and completing vehicle reports of work carried out.

Paul said; “After leaving school I spent three years training as an Apprentice panel beater, and since then, I’ve always worked in the motor industry - it’s something I’ve always enjoyed. 

“This is a great opportunity for me and I am delighted to be working for such a long established and highly regarded company as Jennings Ford.”
