Sohail steers towards success with new ‘Harley’ business venture

Posted on 07 Dec 2011

The son of a prominent North East businessman is aiming to follow in his father’s footsteps.

30-year-old Sohail Khan, son of Nas Khan, managing director of North East-based Jennings Motor Group, has always dreamed of owning his own dealership and being his own boss.

Thanks to an opportunity coupled with the right advice and guidance from his father who has more than 25 years’ industry experience and is the perfect mentor to help him succeed, that dream has now become a reality for ambitious Sohail.

In 2011, the opportunity to take over and invest in the Leeds Harley-Davidson franchise, based on Wellington Road Industrial Estate, was an offer too good to turn down.

Working alongside his cousin and fellow director, Shahzad Ahmed, Sohail is currently responsible for the day-to-day running of the business, overseeing a team of dedicated staff and above all ensuring that the Leeds Harley-Davidson franchise continues to go from strength to strength.

Gaining valuable experience and knowledge over the years after working in various departments within Jennings Motor Group’s many dealerships across the North East region, gave Sohail the confidence to take on his first challenge – to oversee the transformation of the Leeds Harley-Davidson showroom into a stunning and spacious outlet creating the ultimate experience for anyone looking to buy one of the world’s finest motorcycles.

Managing director, Sohail Khan said; “Being able to put the knowledge and experience I have learnt over the years into practice, is a fantastic opportunity for me. I am looking forward to the many challenges ahead, but I am mainly looking forward to growing and developing the business.”

As well as selling a wide range of both new and quality used motorcycles, Leeds Harley-Davidson offers a large retail experience for those looking for anything Harley-Davidson related.

The showroom is fully equipped with all the parts and accessories that any biker could ever need to customise their perfect Harley experience including riding gear and leathers.

Harley-Davidson is one of the world’s most recognised brands and has been voted in the top ten of global brands. Additionally to this, it was voted one of the 20 brands in the world that evoke passion, style, quality and confidence.

2013 is expected to be a busy but exciting time for Sohail and his team as Harley-Davidson celebrates its 110th anniversary in style with a range of special anniversary motorcycles and accessories.
