Hyundai UK finance director Ray Pope took part in Channel 4’s Undercover Boss in order to discover if the company has the infrastructure in place to continue its rapid growth in the UK.
The Korean brand is looking to grow the business by 25% in the next two years.
Pope said on the show: “The business has expanded at a phenomenal rate and there are two dangers from that.
“Is the business coping or are there cracks out there and how do we take the business forward from here? Are we keeping pace or are we creaking with the volume?
“I know I’m going to find out some things that I didn’t expect. If I see something that’s going wrong in the business, I’ll be passionate in putting it right.”
Pope went undercover at Tilbury docks, the import hub for all of Hyundai’s cars and at a Hyundai dealership in the workshop, service bay and sales departments.
