Simon first started his career in the motor industry 20 years ago, with most of his experience in Sales. Simon's previous role was with Suzuki, where he managed a branch for eight years. The branch won multiple awards throughout his time as a manager, including Dealer of the Year in 2017.
Simon started here at SLM Toyota Uckfield as a General Manager a week ago. He is excited to progress his career in the automotive industry, and after meeting two of the Directors, Simon knew SLM was the company he wanted to work for. As SLM is a family owned group, Simon states "it has a great feel about it". Simon believes "providing the best possible customer service and making sure every customer leaves with a smile" is the most rewarding aspect of the job. His favourite model in the Toyota range is the CH-R but he says the new RAV 4 is a close runner up.
In 2019, Simon is most looking forward to making the branch the best it can be!
Simon states "my first ever car was the Toyota Starlet - now I'm showing my age". Outside of work Simon enjoys spending time with his family, swimming, watching his sons play football as well as the many other activities the children have. On the odd occasion Simon and his family go and watch Brighton play.
