Rising star lands dream job with Volkswagen

A young, up-and-coming motor specialist from Stowmarket has recently been given his dream job at Wolsey Volkswagen, in Ipswich.

Craig Daniels, now aged 22, has been promoted to Assistant Sales Manager at Wolsey, on Sproughton Road, after working in the motor industry since the age of 14, at another Volkswagen retailer, Barnards in Stowmarket.

This is a new role, which has been created by the constant growth of Wolsey Volkswagen, offers Craig the chance to be the first Assistant Sales Manager that Wolsey has ever had.

His first experience with Volkswagen was during a Saturday job he had as a youngster. Since his induction into the business, he has quickly risen among the ranks to become a shining young star. Craig’s proven flair and passion for sales has almost certainly been an influential factor in landing his new role.

Craig is no stranger to the limelight, after being featured in local papers on a number of occasions highlighting his on-going success in the industry. He is also considered to be among the best young salesmen in the motoring industry today.

He commented on his new role by saying: “It is a fantastic opportunity that has been presented to me, and I really look forward to facing the new challenges ahead.

“Selling cars is something that I really enjoy, and to be given the chance to really show what I can do is a great honour for me. I feel very passionately about the work I do, and hope this new experience will allow me to flourish as an individual, and help me to continue to shape my skills and further my career.”

Tim Hargraves, Brand Manager Wolsey Volkswagen, said: “Craig really deserves this promotion. His strong motivation and commitment to his work has been admirable, and he will be a valued member of our team here at Wolsey.

“Should he prove himself in this role, it could pave the way for more assistant sales manager opportunities to open up across our other retails sites in Kings Lynn, Bury St Edmunds and Stowmarket.”

Craig was previously named top salesman for Volkswagen in the UK after winning the national retail qualification championships, and will soon be battling it out on an international level at the world championships in Germany, later this month.
