Here at SLM Toyota we are excited to welcome Sam Lane to our team as Sales Executive.
Sam has an impressive 10 years experience under his belt in the motor industry. He started his journey as a car valeter and progressed to car sales at the earliest opportunity. With over 9 years of successful car sales with his previous employer
He has only been part of the team for a short time but is already fitting in well with the rest of the team. Sam was attracted to working at the SLM Toyota Uckfield branch due to working for the same manufacturer for almost 10 years.
Speaking about the most rewarding aspects of his job, Sam explained "selling the customer the right car for them and building a strong relationship not just as customer and salesperson but to have them refer friends and family in my direction makes me feel they trust me enough to look after [their friends and family] as I did them."
In his short time in working at the Uckfield branch, Sam has been heavily involved with showing customers the New Toyota RAV 4 Self Charging Hybrid. Sam commented, "I can honestly say I am blown away with the technology incorporated into the vehicle and feel the future for that vehicle is huge".
In 2019 at SLM Toyota Uckfield, Sam is most looking forward to getting stuck in and helping uplift the brand in the Uckfield area and assisting many people to come in buying their brand new/used vehicles from him and SLM Toyota.
Sam's first ever car was a Vauxhall Astra 1.6 SXi. Outside of work, you will find him enjoying a number of activities involving his wife and two dogs. He likes taking them on long country side walks and getaways, as well as going away yearly to snowboard and skii with his wife.
Everyone at SLM Toyota is very happy to have someone so passionate about cars and sales on the team. We are sure he is going to become a fantastic asset to the dealership and we all look forward to working with him.
