Gary keeps it in the Family


Swansway Chester multi-brand centre, based on Bumpers Lane, has appointed Wirral man, Gary Sayers, 30, to Sales Manager; he was previously a Sales Executive at the site, having also worked in that role at Swansway Peugeot Chester, around the corner on Sealand Road.


Delighted Gary explained, “I started out as a valeter, progressing to Area Manager, which was when I met Andrew Wakelin, Swansway Chester Operations Director and he offered me a role at Swansway Peugeot as a Sales Executive and I’ve never looked back”!

“I worked at both the Swansway sites in Chester but really found my niche with the FIAT group brands which cover not just FIAT, but Abarth, Jeep and Alfa Romeo”, added Gary, “From the very first time I met Andrew Wakelin I was impressed by his absolute passion for the business, then I met the Smyth family who own and run Swansway and realised that there were equally passionate and really believed in their family values”.

Gary obviously took the family feel of Swansway at face value, becoming engaged to Danielle Hancocks, Dealership Accountant for both Swansway Chester sites, the couple now have a beautiful baby boy, Luca, who is now 9 months old and will marry in 2018.

“Swansway has literally made my life complete”, laughed Gary, “My ambition is to learn everything I can about all the departments that make up a dealership, to help me in achieving my long-term goal of becoming a General Manager”.
