A Drive For Everyone

Published: 25 Aug 2009

A dedicated member of staff at Jennings SEAT is on the road to a successful career and it’s all thanks to a recent promotion.

Within a year of joining the company as a sales executive, Tony Smith, 32, from Ingleby Barwick, has been promoted to business manager/motability specialist at the group’s SEAT dealership on Cargo Fleet Lane in Middlesbrough.

In addition to assisting franchise manager, Craig Johnson, with the day-to-day running of the branch, Tony’s new role will see him being responsible for all aspects of finance, which will also include liaising with existing and potential retail and motability customers.

Tony is no stranger to Jennings, the staff or the products having worked in a sales capacity for the Ford side of the business five years ago.

“I decided to leave Jennings and move to another motor dealer in the area, which soon proved to be a big mistake,” said Tony.

After taking time out to travel around the USA, Tony returned to the UK and was keen to work for Jennings again and applied for a vacancy in sales at the SEAT dealership.

“It just goes to prove the grass isn’t always greener on the other side. I am delighted to have been given this excellent opportunity and look forward to a long and successful career with Jennings,” said Tony.

Craig Johnson, franchise manager at Jennings SEAT in Middlesbrough, said; “Tony is an asset to the team and he will continue to succeed in future years.”
