New recruits join Vertu Honda Derby after a successful spell for dealership

Time 9:28 am, August 8, 2018

VERTU Honda Derby is welcoming three new recruits to its sales team following a strong period of growth.

The dealership, in Sir Frank Whittle Road, has welcomed three new sales executives to the team. Andrew Kinsey and Vik Sandhu have more than 25 years’ experience in the motor retail industry and Anne Robinson is starting her first role in the sector.

Vertu Honda Derby is also celebrating the dedication of two of its colleagues. Aftersales manager Jeffrey Rex has worked for an incredible 42 years, while general manger Peter Wileman, who joined the dealership in 2014, has worked in the Derby area for almost 30 years.

Vertu Motors, which operates the group’s Vertu Honda dealerships, recently invested more than £100,000 in a refurbishment of the Derby site. The showroom has increased in size, allowing customers to see a wider variety of new cars on display, and the area has been completely reorganised.

In addition to the larger showroom, the dealership has also bolstered its facilities for customers, including a redecorated lounge area, disabled-access toilets, refreshments, TV and a customer information station with free wifi.

Recent refurbishment

Wileman said: ‘Following our recent refurbishment, we are able to provide our customers with the complete Honda experience, in time for the arrival of models such as the Jazz Sport, Civic diesel, Civic 4 door and the all new CR-V inc hybrid. As always, we will continue to provide first-class customer service, whether it’s a new customer or a familiar face.

‘We are delighted to welcome Andrew, Vik and Anne to the dealership, and I would especially like to thank Anne for choosing to start her career in the industry with us.

‘Vertu Motors has made a significant investment in our dealership and the Derby area and we are excited about what the remainder of the year holds.’

Robinson said: ‘I am excited to start my career in the motor retail industry with a forward-thinking company like Vertu Motors. I’m keen to get to know my colleagues and to learn as much as possible from an experienced, friendly team.’
