David Walker, general sales manager at the Ford Direct site in South Shields, said: “Malcolm’s appointment is part of an on-going recruitment drive at the dealership, which has been implemented to meet demand from customers wanting to purchase a nearly new model from the high quality Ford range available at the branch.  We’re looking forward to welcoming more new members of staff to the team in coming weeks.”

Malcolm brings with him more than 18 years’ experience in the motor industry, having previously worked in both new and used cars sales.  He has also gained valuable experience and knowledge working in a variety of managerial roles for a number of motor dealers and car supermarkets across the region.

Working as part of a 14-strong sales team, Malcolm’s main responsibilities will be selling nearly new Ford cars, contributing towards achieving monthly and quarterly sales objectives, discussing and arranging finance options, arranging warranty packages, as well as completing various training programmes.

Already the latest recruit has got off to a flying start after successfully delivering 20 vehicles to customers in his first month of employment, in addition to also receiving an impressive online five-star ratings review from a customer who recently purchased a Ford Mondeo from him at the dealership.

Prior to embarking on a career within the motor industry, Malcolm spent nine years as a fashion buyer, but he always had an interest in cars.

Malcolm said: “Although I thoroughly enjoyed the time I spent working in London with designers and suppliers within the fashion industry, cars have always been a true passion of mine.”

The South Tyneside-based Lookers Ford Direct dealership sells nearly new quality approved Ford cars, sourced and delivered direct from the manufacturer.  Customers can also take advantage of a range of aftersales facilities, including service, MOT, and genuine Ford parts and accessories.
