MotorVise recruits Harry Potter and Philippa Hirst as account managers

Harry Potter and Phillip Hirst, account managers at MotorVise

MotorVise Automotive has recruited two new account managers Harry Potter and Philippa Hirst amid increasing demand for its consultancy services.

Business graduates Potter and Hirst have joined the business as the motor trade continues to open up following the coronavirus pandemic.

Potter will focus on MotorVise’s showroom, vehicle progressor and FCA compliance systems, while Hirst will specialise in people development, recruitment, training, and mystery shopping services, said Motorvise.

Fraser Brown, founder and managing director at MotorVise, said: “I’m pleased to welcome Harry and Philippa onboard, two highly-motivated people who have the right attitude and skillsets to deliver exceptional service to our clients and help drive this business forward.

“MotorVise is experiencing a huge demand for its services as dealerships across the country continue to open up – with many seeking our expert support around sales, recruitment, and training.

“As account managers Harry and Philippa are responsible for building strong relationships with clients and ensuring we continue to deliver on improving their business performance.”

Car retailers ramped-up their recruitment demands by 400% ahead of the easing of COVID-19 trading restrictions in July, according to data from MotorVise.

Dealers need to offer staff a better work-life balance in order to compete in a challenging jobs market, according to MotorVise.

Potter joins the company having recently graduated from Leeds Becket University with a BA in Business and Management, while Hirst, who gained a Business and Psychology degree from Manchester Metropolitan University arrives following two years’ experience as a sales assistant for a commercial furniture supplier.

MotorVise offers dealers support across areas including car sales events, recruitment, finance and insurance sales compliance and training.

Devonshire Motors owner Nathan Tomlinson said of the event: "Being able to get back to networking and learning in person is something that I'm really looking forward to,” he said, adding: “One thing that really caught my eye was the message about ‘learning new skills to balance your workload’.

“Personally, I think that's going to be a really big deal as we continually put more and more pressure on our teams to handle workflow, often digital, that we just don't have the structure, tools or skills to manage well.”
