Bristol Street Motors Peugeot in Oxford has appointed a new awarding-winning general manager.
Stephen Craig (pictured) has joined the Iffley Road dealership from Bristol Street Motors Peugeot in Banbury. He has worked within the retail motor industry for over a decade – picking up various accolades along the way.
He started his career with Bristol Street Motors Banbury as a sales executive in 2005, working his way up through the ranks to become a sales manager. He became Bristol Street Motor’s sales manager of the year in 2011.
Before being handpicked to head up the Oxford team, Craig was the driving force behind the Banbury dealership’s outstanding performance, which was recognised by Bristol Street Motors when it announced the dealership had come first in a survey of customer satisfaction.
He said: “I started with Bristol Street Motors over a decade ago, working my way up the ladder, so I’m really looking forward to using my experience to help develop the team and the dealership as a whole.
“We already have a strong and established team here in both sales and aftersales, along with a loyal customer base that I’m really looking forward to consolidating and building. I plan to ensure the level of already excellent customer service remains a top priority and that we continue to go the extra mile for our customers.”
Robert Forrester, chief executive of Vertu Motors, owner of Bristol Street Motors, said: “Stephen has taken the next step on the career ladder thanks to his commitment to delivering the best service to our customers.
“One of Bristol Street Motors core values is recognising and rewarding hard work and excellent performances – that’s why we always try to promote from within. A large number of our senior colleagues started with us as trainees or apprentices, so there are great career opportunities provided with Bristol Street Motors.”
