Franchise manager, David Phillips, said; “Customers are becoming more attracted to Kia’s competitively-priced, high product model range, which is also available with a range of customer savings, low rate finance and deposit contributions.

“We are delighted to welcome Gary on board, he has exceptional customer service and selling skills and already he has achieved the top sales award after securing the highest number of new and used sales in his first month of employment with the company.”

Working as part of an eight-strong team, Gary’s new role entails contributing towards achieving monthly and quarterly new and used car sales objectives set out by Kia Motors, liaising with existing and potential customers, delivering vehicles to customers and attending regular training courses to learn about and maintain product knowledge.

Delighted to be working for one of the region’s longest established motor dealer groups, Gary said; “This is a fantastic opportunity for me.  The Kia product range offers high quality, attractive and stylish models, all of which also come with Kia’s market-leading seven-year 100,000 mile peace of mind warranty package.”
