Promotion For Award Winner Ash


Arash Shayestehroo, 36, from Wilmslow has been promoted to Sales Manager at family owned Wrexham Volkswagen. Arash, who’s known as ‘Ash’ by everyone, joined the dealership in 2007 and has never looked back.


“I moved to Wrexham from Altrincham Volkswagen and some people may have thought the commute from Wilmslow would prove too much for me, but ten years on, I think I’ve just about proved that’s not the case”, commented Ash!

Ash’s easy manner and open personality made him a favourite with customers and colleagues alike and he was always in the top three sales people across the whole of the family owned Swansway Motor Group, selling over two hundred cars a year for over five years.

Ash explained, “I like people, I like talking to people and I’m just generally interested in other people’s lives; customers seem to like that openness and genuine interest. Despite selling a lot of cars I guess I’m not the stereotypical car salesman; in fact in 2015, my last full year as a sales executive, I won an award from Volkswagen UK for achieving 100% customer satisfaction which was amazing for me as I’d sold over two hundred and fifty cars that year, making 100% customer satisfaction a real achievement”.

“I wanted to progress in my career and Swansway has given me that opportunity, firstly promoting me to Senior Sales Executive then to Business Manager and now to Sales Manager and I’m really relishing my new role and the different challenges it brings”, added Ash.

Married with a baby and toddler, Ash’s is life is full on at home too!
