A former banker has been appointed dealer principal at Sytner Volkswagen Skipton, having worked her way up the ranks of the car dealer group.
Emma Spedding joined the company’s Leeds dealership in 2010, as a sales executive, from Yorkshire Bank. She became business manager, first at Volkswagen and then in Sytner’s Audi division, before joining the company’s Mercedes-Benz finance team as development manager.
“I have a real affinity for the Volkswagen brand, having started at the Leeds dealership,” said Spedding.
“My main focus is on maintaining Skipton’s very high customer satisfaction survey rankings, which enables the company to benefit from repeat business from loyal clients.
“There are also opportunities to increase sales and to create more jobs for local people. We have been fortunate to attract very good people and have low staff turnover, giving us a solid base on which to build a bigger team.
“Right now I’m looking for a new service advisor to join the experts in our workshop, and we have ambitions for further recruitment in coming months.”
