An Edinburgh business is celebrating a record performance thanks to salesman, David Miller.

The campervan specialist from Volkswagen Van Centre Edinburgh set a personal best by delivering 40 Volkswagen California vehicles last year and is already well on the way to smashing this figure for 2015.

David’s strong performance has been echoed by figures released by The National Caravan Council who recently announced an 18 per cent¹ year on year increase in Motorhomes registration, which includes campervan sales, illustrating that more consumers are entering the leisure vehicles market.

David has worked for the John Clark Motor Group, who owns the Edinburgh business, for the past nine years but has been dedicated to the campervan sales division  since 2008.

During his time David has seen a growing trend for the Volkswagen California as more people want to take advantage of that spur-of-the-moment getaway.

He said: “The iconic Volkswagen Campervan has always had a big following but the California is something completely different. It sets new standards in comfort, performance and safety and is so much more practical for today’s lifestyle. It really does offer the home-from-home comforts, whether you are on your own or a family of six.

As an outdoor enthusiast himself David knows first-hand the benefits of a California. He added: “I believe the vehicle’s practicality, design and brand recognition has contributed to my results.  These vehicles are a carefully considered purchase and I believe customers should have as much time and information as possible to help them make that decision.

“I delighted with my success last year but believe if you have a job you enjoy and are passionate about then everything just falls into place.”

Matt Stewart, head of business at Volkswagen Van Centre Edinburgh, said: “David is far too modest; his genuine passion, knowledge and attention to detail has culminated in his record performance. It is a fantastic achievement and has certainly set a benchmark within the group.”
