Tom Wright, aged 25 and Alex Hill, 30, have joined the dealership, as Sales Manager and Sales Executive respectively. The duo has already got off to promising start with 20 vehicles sold during their first month.
With a range of skills between them, gained from former roles, including chef, bricklayer, musician and car valeter, Tom and Alex have shown themselves to be gifted salespeople, as Brayley Honda’s Managing Director, Paul Brayley, comments:
“A business is only as good as the people it employs and Tom and Alex have already shown they have the talent and dedication to take Brayley Honda forward. Our business is about empowering people to do the best they can for our customers as well as for their own professional development and this formula has enabled us to navigate the choppy economic waters and look to new horizons with confidence.”
According to Paul Brayley, the devastating consequences of the earthquake and tsunami in Japan had a major effect on UK Honda retailers in 2011 but the determination and resilience of his team at Brayley Honda enabled the company to deliver a sound financial performance:
“For half of 2011, our business could be likened to running a pub with no beer, as Honda and other manufacturers battled to come to terms with the challenge of stabilising production, having seen factories damaged and parts of the supply chain literally wiped out. As such, Brayley Honda has had to dig deep and demonstrate its mettle and there’s been great support from Honda UK. Everyone in the business has pulled together to look after our customers in the Hemel area and this has been a massive achievement. We look forward to a truly ‘Olympic’ year in 2012.”
