Chris said: “This is another fantastic opportunity for me and I am absolutely delighted and looking forward to the daily challenges ahead in my new role.”

The sport management graduate started working for the region’s longest established motor dealer group four years ago when he was taken on as a sales executive, after working as a fitness instructor at a local gym. 

Chris added: “I was keen to change my career and having always been attracted to the motor industry, a job in car sales was a natural choice and I haven’t looked back since.”

Franchise manager, Craig Johnson, said: “Over the years, Chris has gained valuable experience and knowledge in both new and used car sales, as well as recently being trained to arrange finance when customers want to buy their car through personal contract purchase.”
