A dedicated employee at Jennings SEAT, part of the Jennings Motor Group, has received his first promotion within a year of joining the busy Middlesbrough dealership.

Geoffrey Urch, from Bishop Auckland, was appointed as a sales executive at the Cargo Fleet Lane dealership less than 12 months ago and has recently received his first promotion to deputy business manager

The promotion is as a result of Geoffrey successfully completing a business manager’s course organised by SEAT, which covers all aspects of finance.

In addition to securing new and used car sales, Geoffrey has taken on the added responsibility of working alongside sales controller and business manager, Mike Scurr, in order to assist with compiling individual finance packages for customers.

“I am delighted to be assisting with the finance side of the business at the dealership and look forward to assisting more customers in future,” said Geoffrey.

Over the years, Geoffrey has gained valuable sales experience having worked for a number of years for another motor dealer in the region, in addition to working in caravan sales and prior to that, being a financial advisor.

Franchise manager, Craig Johnson, said; “Geoffrey has vast knowledge and experience in the motor industry.  His overall sales performance and the fact that he achieved top marks in a customer performance mystery shop at the dealership, automatically put him in line for the role of deputy business manager.”

The entire SEAT model range, including the Mii, Ibiza, Ibiza ST, Leon, Leon ST, Altea, Altea XL, Toledo, Exeo and Alhambra, is on display and available to test drive.

Customers can also take advantage of a service, accident repair centre and parts department at the dealership.
