The Only Way Is Up

Matt Knowles, 35, Used Car Sales Manager at multi-award winning Land Rover retailer, Stafford Land Rover, has been promoted to General Sales Manager. Matt has been at the site since April 2014 and has been promoted after the retirement of long-serving General Sales Manager Alan Dew.

In the motor trade since he left university fifteen years ago, Matt is delighted with his recent promotion, “ Since I joined Swansway Motor Group, the family owned business which owns Stafford Land Rover, I’ve been given the opportunity to progress and to learn more about the whole business of motor retailing”.

“To me, that’s fascinating, I want to take my career as far as it can go; ultimately I’d like to become Head of Business here at Stafford Land Rover, though with John Nimbley currently winning awards right, left and centre I suspect his seat may not be vacant for a little while yet!”

Matt lives in Stoke with his wife and child, with another on the way very soon!

The Valley Drive dealership has had an amazing year winning a hat-trick of industry awards; Land Rover Dealership of the Year; Land Rover Aftersales Dealership of the Year and now Motor Trader Franchised Dealership of the Year; “It’s really special to be part of a winning team; the whole dealership works together and that’s how we’ve produced such amazing results, so I’m just proud to be part of it all”, added Matt.

Swansway Motor Group is family owned and believes in growing its own talent and promoting from within.
