Gordon Bell has long been an admirer of Volkswagen cars – now he has landed a dream job selling them.

Gordon, 60, has been appointed as a new sales executive at Lookers Volkswagen Blackpool, on Ashworth Road.

He has 27 years’ of experience in the industry having joined Lookers from the Stanways Ford dealership in Lytham.

Gordon said: “Joining Lookers Blackpool is a great move for me.

“This is a very busy dealership with plenty going on. I can’t wait to meet customers old and new and introduce them to everything Volkswagen and Lookers have to offer.”

It’s been a busy year at the motor dealership, which celebrated its most successful March new car registrations for five years earlier this year.

Mike Pollitt, brand manager for Blackpool Volkswagen, said: “We are thrilled to welcome Gordon onto our team. He was a salesman for 10 years and then a sales manager for 17 years, so he brings with him a wealth of experience.

“We have already had people come into the showroom who have bought cars from him before, looking to entrust their next vehicle choice to him because they value his integrity and advice.

“I expect there will be plenty more of his loyal customers popping in to see him here at Blackpool Volkswagen.”

Gordon, who lives in nearby Thornton, added: “I’ve always admired the Volkswagen brand – and even owned two Golfs myself. I love the way such an iconic car has been subtly reinvented over the decades, keeping it fresh and very desirable.”

Away from work, Gordon enjoys walking in The Lakes with his wife. He has two grown-up children and three grandchildren.

Lookers Volkswagen Blackpool supplies new and approved used cars and a comprehensive after-sales service using genuine Volkswagen parts.
