With their first Jaguar centre, on Crewe Green roundabout, nearing completion, local, Family owned Swansway Motor Group has appointed Matthew Hill, 45, as Head of Business of the flagship site.
Matthew came to Swansway having worked for the Volkswagen Group for over 11 years. He decided to make the move after working with the family owned and run group in a number of roles at Audi UK and Volkswagen UK, Matthew explains, “Swansway operate Audi centres in Crewe, Stoke and Stafford and as an Audi Area Manager, I worked with them very closely. I was impressed by their enthusiasm and passion, the way that they really stuck to their family values of caring, hones and proud, yet still managed to be top performers for the Brand Nationally”.
“The icing on the cake is the opportunity to launch and run a brand new Jaguar centre; surely the most iconic British motoring brand ever”, added Matthew.
The centre should effectively be complete at the beginning of March, opening its doors to customers just a few weeks later. The centre has a ten car showroom, six workshop ramps, an MOT testing bay and space to display forty used cars.
Matt explained, “We start with a totally clean sheet, there’s never been a Jaguar centre in the area, so we have no existing customers; this means we start with just over twenty new staff, but this should double as the centre becomes established.”
Jaguar enjoyed a 45% increase in sales in 2016, driven by their hugely popular F-Pace SUV model and Matthew sees exciting times ahead in 2017, “The current model offering, already excellent, will be joined by a smaller SUV model and the beginning of a full electric range with the launch of the Jaguar I-Pace SUV in 2018. No other British brand can match Jaguar’s racing pedigree and heritage and the new models honour this as they’re not only stunning to look at, but also exciting to drive”.
