Stacey steers sales at Jennings Ford Direct

Girl power is taking hold at a South Tyneside motor dealer, following the appointment of a female sales executive.

Stacey Tinkler, 26, from Bishop Middleham, near Sedgefield, is the latest recruit to further strengthen the sales team at the Jennings Ford Direct dealership, part of the award-winning Jennings Motor Group, based on Newcastle Road in South Shields.

With two years’ experience under her belt, having previously worked in sales for another motor dealer in the region, Stacey, said; “This is a great opportunity for me and I am delighted to be working for one of the region’s longest established and multi-award winning motor dealer groups.”

In her new role, Stacey will be responsible for selling nearly new Ford cars both over the phone and face-to-face with customers, contributing towards achieving monthly and quarterly sales objectives, liaising with existing and potential customers, in addition to delivering vehicles and attending regular training courses to learn and maintain product knowledge.

Welcoming Stacey on board, Dave Walker, general sales manager, said; “Stacey has exceptional customer service and selling skills and already she is proving to be an asset to the sales team at Shields.”

The wealth of customer service experience Stacey has gained comes from working within the hospitality industry.  A part-time job she initially undertook whilst studying towards ‘A’ Levels, eventually resulted in a full-time job, a promotion to duty manager and later assistant manager at a hotel in Darlington.

Stacey added; “I haven’t looked back since I made the career change from hospitality to the motor industry.”

The Jennings Ford Direct dealership in South Shields sells quality approved used vehicles, which have been delivered direct from the manufacturer, in addition to offering a number of after sales facilities, including service, MOT and parts.

In addition to operating the Ford Direct site, Jennings Motor Group also has three main Ford branches based at Gateshead, Stockton and Middlesbrough, where the brand new Ford model line-up is on display and available to test drive.
