There have been some new faces in the Carparison office over the last few months: it is our absolute pleasure to introduce Simon Taylor, Sammie Ackford and Joshua May.
Each brings their own experience and expertise to their respective fields, both from within the automotive world and otherwise. They are wonderful assets to our growing business (and are lovely to have around, too).
We hope you will all get to know them very well in the coming years, but here are some initial introductions.
Simon joins us having spent the last six years working with a well known daily vehicle rental provider. There he managed various critical aspects of the business including purchasing, logistics and pricing.
Having joined Carparison at the beginning of August, Simon now heads up our pricing department. He brings over a wealth of experience across vehicle manufacturers and dealers as well as the analysis skills essential for unearthing the best prices and supply options for our vehicles. His role involves the constant research and revision of leasing rates from funders and dealers from across the UK, ensuring that Carparison's advertised offers are relevant, accurate and the most competitive.
We asked Simon how he is settling in:
"I know I am only a few weeks in but so far I have been made to feel really welcome and have been totally motivated by the exciting and positive approach of the whole team.
I think that there are many exciting times ahead for the business and am really glad that I have joined to early on and will get the opportunity to be part of the growth.
It’s such a refreshing change to be sat in an office where there is a constant buzz and where everyone is striving to get the customer the best deal every time."
Sammie joined the Carparison team in June, taking on the role of Sales Administrator. She brings with her extensive experience in administration and front of house with a varied background that also includes interior design and dental nursing!
Sammie will be in charge of ensuring every order goes through without a hitch. She will be your point of contact after you have chosen your perfect car: processing all vehicle orders and ensuring all paperwork is complete, timely and correct. Sammie is also responsible for booking all vehicle deliveries.
Sammie told us about her first few months in post:
"My time here has flown by. It’s very exciting starting with the company in the early stages, growing with it as it gets busier and busier. I’ve learnt so much about the motor industry and already have such a better understanding of how things work here."
Alongside Simon, Josh also joined us at the beginning of August. He is a central part of our team of Leasing Consultants who are your first point of call when contacting us or making an inquiry. Josh has taken to his new role like a duck to water with the benefit of many years of leasing broker experience already behind him.
He specialises in fleet management as well as personal contract hire, priding himself on working with his customers to find the very best car and price for them. He is a real petrol head with a keen eye for detail and appreciation of individual vehicle specifications. Whether you're set on a car, or are open to suggestions, Josh is your man!
We are delighted to welcome our three newbies to the Carparison team and we look forward to working together to bring customers (old and new) the very best vehicle leasing service out there!
