James moved to the North East from Belfast a year ago when his wife, Lynn, secured a job as a Pharmacist at a local hospital, and the couple relocated to Durham.

He achieved a BA (Hons) degree in Theology at Queen’s University in Belfast, and later pursued a career in photography, which resulted in running his own business for five years, prior to steering towards a completely new career in car sales.

James said: “This is a fantastic opportunity for me and a challenge I am very much looking forward to.  I’m particularly looking forward to learning about the range of Mazda products and services available to customers, through various training programmes which are being arranged both in-house and through the manufacturer.”

Working as part of the sales team, James will be responsible for selling the new Mazda model line-up, in addition to a variety of quality used cars, contributing towards achieving sales objectives, liaising with existing and potential customers, completing on-going training programmes, in addition to delivering the highest level of customer care.

Commenting on the latest recruit to join the sales team at the Sunderland-based dealership, franchise manager, James Chorlton, said:

“I would like to welcome James on board.  Already he’s proving to be an asset to the team.  He’s joining the company at a very exciting time, following the recent take over from Lookers - one of the top three motor vehicle retailers in the UK.”

Customers who purchase a new or quality used car at Lookers Mazda, can also take advantage of a Motability service, as well as a range of aftersales facilities, including service, MOT, and genuine parts and accessories.
