Robert’s reward for 25 years’ loyalty

A member of staff at Jennings Mitsubishi, part of the multi-award winning Jennings Motor Group, has been rewarded for his loyalty to the company.

Robert Flintoft, 50, from Stainton, near Middlesbrough, has achieved 25 years’ loyalty with the North East’s longest established motor dealer group.

Over the years, Robert has gained valuable experience and knowledge in the motor industry after working as a sales executive, deputy business manager and Motability specialist.

Robert’s career began in 1991, when he was appointed as a sales executive at the group’s Ford dealership based on Yarm Road in Stockton.  In 2012, in addition to his role as sales executive, Robert received a promotion to deputy business compliance manager, which included working alongside the dealership’s business compliance manager.   In addition to selling new and used cars, the additional role entailed being responsible for tailor-making finance packages for customers.

Last year, when the group’s Mitsubishi dealership on Cargo Fleet Lane in Middlesbrough became an accredited Motability dealer, a transfer from Stockton to Middlesbrough was on the cards for dedicated Robert.

His current role at the Jennings Mitsubishi dealership involves working as a sales executive/Motability specialist and being responsible for contributing towards monthly and quarterly retail and Motability sales, liaising with existing and potential customers and delivering the highest level of customer service.

The Motability range available at Jennings Mitsubishi, includes the super-mini Mirage, the ASX crossover and the Outlander diesel SUV.

To mark Robert’s 25 year loyalty milestone, a presentation took place at the group’s Mitsubishi dealership where managing director, Nas Khan, presented an official loyalty certificate and some vouchers.

Nas said; “It was a pleasure presenting Robert with his loyalty vouchers.  He is a dedicated and committed employee who will continue to succeed in the future.

“I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate him for his continuous hard work and loyalty over the past 25 years.”

2016 will see 29 members of staff being rewarded for a combined 660 years’ loyalty across Jennings Motor Group.  Members of staff receive loyalty awards after 15 years of service and then receive rewards after every five years.
