MOTOR finance provider Close Brothers Motor Finance has boosted its offering in the Portsmouth and Isle of Wight area with the appointment of account manager Amy Bridges.
Bridges initially joined Close Brothers as a branch administrator. It wasn’t long before senior management recognised her potential and she was subsequently promoted to the sales team.
In her new role as account manager, Bridges is responsible for maintaining and building relationships with dealers in the Portsmouth and Isle of Wight areas, and helping them grow their business.
She said: ‘I’m thrilled with this opportunity. It’s been a steep learning curve but the whole team has been really supportive, giving me lots of advice and help when I need it.
‘I really enjoy being out on the road, meeting people and getting to know their businesses. I’ve already built up strong relationships with many dealers in the area and I’m looking forward to developing connections with more local dealers in the coming months.’
John Cassidy, head of sales for Close Brothers in the south, said: ‘]I’m delighted to welcome Amy to the sales team. From first meeting her, it was clear that she had the right attitude for the job – she’s personable, charismatic, tenacious and most of all, enthusiastic – all the qualities required in a successful sales person.’
