New recruit is no stranger to Mazda sales team

Posted on 26 Jun 2008

There’s a new addition to the sales team at JenningsMazda and he’s no stranger to the product or staff at the dealership.

Norman Shepherd, from Chester-le-Street, has been appointed sales controller/business manager at JenningsMazda’s new dealership based on Riverside Road, just off Wessington Way in Sunderland.

Norman is no stranger to JenningsMazda, having worked as a sales executive in the past, when the dealership was based at Washington.

“Basically, I was offered another job and took it thinking I was making the right move, but within a short period of time that proved not to be the case.”

“It just goes to prove, the grass isn’t always greener on the other side,” said Norman.

A time-served mechanic, with more than 25 years’ experience within the motor industry, Norman is feeling confident about his new role at JenningsMazda and the challenge ahead;

“This is an excellent opportunity for me to further my career with such a well respected and well established company as Jennings, the added bonus of course being that I already have extensive product knowledge, in addition to being au fait with the sales team,” said Norman.

Over the years, Norman has gained a wealth of experience having worked in a variety of roles for a number of motor dealers across the region.

Chris Nixon, franchise manager at JenningsMazda in Sunderland, said; “We’re delighted to welcome Norman on board. His experience and knowledge made him the perfect candidate for the post.”
