AN award-winning Motability specialist is celebrating his 15th work anniversary at Bristol Street Motors Sunderland Vauxhall.
David Nelson-Vollans, who started as a rental manager at the site, has been a Motability specialist there for 12 years. He was named national Motability Specialist of the Year twice and was nominated for the accolade again last year.
In 2011, as part of the celebrations for the three-millionth Motability car being sold and for being named the specialist of the year, Nelson-Vollans was invited to Buckingham Palace to be presented with his award by the Queen and Prince Philip.
In addition to awards from the Motability scheme, he has also been given the Best Motability Sales Executive Award from Vertu Motors – the group that operates the Bristol Street Motors brand.
‘Spending 15 years with the Sunderland Vauxhall team has been a privilege,’ said Nelson-Vollans. ‘I love my job and the customers that I have come to know so well on a personal level, and I am proud to deliver a first-class service to any new customers coming through our doors.
‘Each Motability customer’s needs are different, so it is really rewarding when a customer returns to the dealership and I can pre-empt their needs and what they’re looking for. To have been acknowledged and rewarded for my work as a Motability specialist throughout my career has been a massive achievement and it has been great to celebrate another year doing what I love best.’
Jass Singh, general manager at Bristol Street Motors Sunderland Vauxhall, said: ‘David is an absolute credit to the team and I am thrilled to celebrate his 15th year of working at the site with him. He has achieved so much in his illustrious career so far, and I look forward to what the future will bring.’
