Wow ten years...
I can still remember my first day at Volkswagen Van Centre (Wrexham) on Monday 1st August. I came from Fleet & Commercial Sales at Nissan I thought Volkswagen Commercials would be hard but not as hard as it was...
The van centre had been closed for at least 3 months due to no staff, the pitch was a mess (and for thoses of you that have worked with me, you can imagine my face!). So my first job was to tidy up and get things straight ready for the rush of customers and orders as soon as the word got out that we were open again. I was still waiting a month later.
Hard to think back then the van centre target for the year was the same as what we do in a month now, which at the time I thought was an impossible task!
Then was the big move to the all new Volkswagen Van Centre (Liverpool), the new flag ship of Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles, now the pressure was really on, a target of over 100% more than when I started, new units a year... But we did it and continue to go onwards and upwards winning number one Van Centre in the country 2014.
As I've progressed up the ladder, the help & support from the great friends I've made over the years within the Swansway Group has made it feel like a second family and helped me get where I am today, long may it last!
Here's looking forward to the next ten years!
