Catwalk star proves to be model worker

A Lithuanian catwalk queen is proving a model saleswoman after joining the team at a Seat dealership in Milton Keynes.

Audra Baltrukonyte’s modelling career has landed her glamorous assignments in Paris and Milan.

But since taking a part-time post at MK Seat to help fund her marketing degree studies, she frequently sold more cars than many of her full-time male colleagues.

Cliff Freeman, dealer principal at MK SEAT, is certainly glad he appointed Baltrukonyte and recognised her talent for sales. He said: “Audra’s been a fantastic addition to our team and we’re delighted to have her on board. Obviously, when you meet her you’re struck by her looks, but when after spending five minutes with her you see beyond that to the very bright and natural saleswoman underneath.’

Baltrukonyte, who still accepts modelling bookings when her studies allow, said: “I do find that many of the female customers come to me for help because they prefer dealing with another woman. But most of my sales are to men who only commit to buying the cars long after they’ve stopped caring what I look like!”

“A lot of people take one look at me and see a young and pretty girl and think I couldn’t possibly know what I’m talking about. But I’ve loved cars since I was a little girl and actually know a lot about them, which our customers appreciate.”
