Having worked for various photocopier dealers at the start of my sales career I was eventually headhunted and joined Canon UK working in and around London. In the first ten years of my Canon career I enjoyed huge success and entered the Canon Commanders Club for outstanding sales achieved throughout this period.
Part of my success I put down to my ability to be able to communicate clearly and honestly with my customers and develop long and lasting trusted relationships with all my customers, most of which today are still trading with Canon UK. I eventually joined Canon management, again enjoying great success building and working with a team of sales professionals. I finally finished my time with Canon as Corporate & International Sales Manager Central Government and MOD.
With my interest in cars I wanted to develop my skills further and brought an Autosmart Franchise in the Dartford area of Kent supplying products into the automotive sector including large logistics sector, plant hire, coach company’s and the motor trade. We built this business from having approximately 70 Customers to over 400 within the first five years. This was done by ensuring that all new customers were never let down and they could rely and trust in the service that we offered. Moving to the present, we have recently started a new and exciting venture with Motor Republic. I have always had a keen interest in cars and have owned many vehicles from very small up to a Rolls Royce (not new!). This will combine my passion for cars with my business skills.
I have built up strong business relationships over the years, and being local and living and working around Maidstone, have a good understanding of local business. I am a member of the Kent Chamber of Commerce and attend many networking events within the local area, getting a good understanding of business and personal needs.
We look forward to building Motor Republic Maidstone into another successful business, offering the same personal service to all my future customers.
