Neyland business appoints a third generation motoring expert

A Neyland business has added strength to its management team with the appointment of a new motoring expert.

Gareth Lewis, from Cosheston, has been appointed the role of aftersales manager at Sinclair Volkswagen Neyland, bringing with him over 24 years’ experience in the automotive industry.

The 40-year-old, who joined Sinclair Volkswagen in November, began work at the family run Sinclair Group as a service administrator for Audi and Mercedes before his recent promotion to after sales manager at Neyland Volkswagen.  His automotive career started back in 1990 working as a car valeter at a local motor dealership gradually rising through the ranks to the role of after-sales manager before deciding to move onto pastures new.

Speaking of his appointment, Gareth said: “I’ve always wanted to work in the motor trade, it’s the only thing I’ve ever known. Both my father and my grandfather were motor traders so it is something that comes naturally to me.

“I’m enjoying the challenge of taking the Sinclair Volkswagen Neyland team to new successes and providing customers with a service they expect from such a prestigious brand.

“My role is heavily focussed on ensuring that customers get a high standard of service from us, whether it’s during a sale, after a sale is complete or during service and maintenance work.”

Gareth is managing a team of 24 highly trained specialists and is impressed by the high level skills shown by the staff in the departments that he now heads up.

He said: “I am delighted to have joined such a highly trained professional team of Volkswagen experts and have instantly been made to feel welcome by the group.”

Mark Chesterton, Brand Manager, said: “Gareth’s experience and track record in the motor industry makes him ideal to lead the team forward and will ensure that our customers can continue to be confident that they are our number one priority.”
