With the continuing success of the Bentley Continental GT, Flying Spur and forthcoming new model launches, the company is expanding its senior management team with the following appointments;

Head of Sales Planning
An opportunity to lead and manage the Company sales planning process, being the key interface between sales, marketing and production on all matters relating to sales volumes, mix, launch plans and timing to optimise Bentley sales worldwide. This is a pivotal role in Bentley Motors, which will require high standards of strategic planning, performance and relationship management, analysis and representation of the brand on a global basis.

Ideally, your expertise should be gained with a car or commercial vehicle Manufacturer/Importer, where you have had full responsibility for this process. Of graduate calibre, your ability to influence, motivate and communicate with teams in the UK and worldwide should be exemplary. Project management and motivation of a small team of expert resource are also critical elements to the role, which also will require some International travel.

Sales operations Manager
This key role will lead the development and execution, worldwide, of the Company’s Used Vehicle strategy. Essential to the continued growth of the Bentley brand, the Used Vehicle operation on a global scale will underpin the continuing success of all the current and new model sales volumes. It is, therefore, critical we find an individual with expertise as a specialist for a Manufacturer or Importer in this area. Additionally, this individual will be a self-starter with an outgoing personality and excellent communication skills at all levels in the business, someone who will be confident in putting the business plan together and executing it with and through our Regional and Dealer teams worldwide.

Experience beyond the UK would be desirable, with a marketing orientation, relevant degree and performance/results orientation.

Both these roles offer outstanding renumeration packages, generous bonus structures and comprehensive flexible benefits schemes. Additionally, relocation assistance (including house purchase) is available, where necessary.

If you would like to be part of the management team at Crewe, shaping the future of Bentley on a worldwide basis, please contact our retained consultant, David Southgate, at Southgate Consulting, Bakers Yard, Ardington, OX12 8PT Tel: 01235 863525. Fax: 01235 863530 Email:
