Pebley Beach welcomes a clutch of new staff

Motor dealer Pebley Beach has welcomed a clutch of new starters, having said goodbye to some long-serving members of staff.
 
Showroom manager Natalia Wilson – who has been with Pebley Beach for 18 years – has left the company to take a break from working weekends, and is currently in the Cayman Islands; service advisor Lloyd Pickup – who was last year named one of Hyundai’s top brand UK ambassadors – has started a job closer to his family in Bristol; and Master Technician Steve Strange has moved to Hyundai’s UK headquarters in High Wycombe to train other technicians, a move made possible by Pebley’s Train To Leave programme for high-flyers.
 
And the Swindon-based Hyundai and Suzuki franchise has been joined by four new faces. 
 
Receptionist Laura Lockyer is the first face visitors to the Paddington Drive showroom will see, and it will be a familiar face to many – she previously worked for the company seven years ago, when Swindon Hyundai was run from a showroom in Eldene. Laura returns after taking time off to raise a family.
 
Workshop controller Chris Harkin has stepped into Steve’s shoes. He joins the company from Chippenham Ford, where he spent 12 years. He’s also had experience running his own garage.
 
Parts advisor Michael Davis has joined Pebley from Swindon Motor Park, where he has worked for 12 years, while service advisor Sophia Browne, who replaces Lloyd, has joined the team from TH White Land Rover, where she worked in the same role for five years.
 
Managing director Dominic Threlfall said: “It’s always sad to say goodbye to old colleagues, but gratifying to have been able to help each of them with their career development. We’re delighted to welcome Chris, Sophia, Laura and Mike to our growing team.”

Financial Disclosure

Pebley Beach Limited is an Appointed Representative of Automotive Compliance Ltd, who is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA No 497010). Automotive Compliance Ltd’s permissions as a Principal Firm allows Pebley Beach Limited to act as a credit broker, not as a lender, for the introduction to a limited number of lenders and to act as an agent on behalf of the insurer for insurance distribution activities only.

We can introduce you to a selected panel of lenders, which includes manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent. An introduction to a lender does not amount to independent financial advice and we act as their agent for this introduction. Our approach is to introduce you first to the manufacturer lender linked directly to the particular franchise you are purchasing your vehicle from, who are usually able to offer the best available package for you, taking into account both interest rates and other contributions. If they are unable to make you an offer of finance, we then seek to introduce you to whichever of the other lenders on our panel is able to make the next best offer of finance for you. Our aim is to secure the best deal you are eligible for from our panel of lenders. Lenders may pay a fixed commission to us for introducing you to them, calculated by reference to the vehicle model or amount you borrow. Different lenders may pay different commissions for such introductions, and manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent may also provide preferential rates to us for the funding of our vehicle stock and also provide financial support for our training and marketing. But any such amounts they and other lenders pay us will not affect the amounts you pay under your finance agreement, all of which are set by the lender concerned. If you ask us what the amount of commission is, we will tell you in good time before the Finance agreement is executed. All finance applications are subject to status, terms and conditions apply, UK residents only, 18’s or over. Guarantees may be required.
