A MORPETH car dealership has a new manager in the driving seat.

Anthony Lee has been appointed General Sales Manager of Benfield’s Volkswagen and Renault outlet in Hillgate.

The 46-year-old has been promoted from the group’s VW Silverlink dealership, where he was Used Car Manager and was responsible for doubling used car sales during his three-year tenure.

He has a wealth of experience in the motor trade, having spent much of his time as a child in his father’s Skoda dealership in Consett.

He said: “Having been brought up in the motor trade and enjoyed several years retailing the Renault and Volkswagen brands, I am delighted to be promoted to this position.

“Volkswagen and Renault have a specific focus on their after sales service so central to my new role at Benfield Morpeth will be to implement a number of professional training opportunities provided by VW and Renault.

“This will ensure that we can offer our customers highly skilled technicians, as well as provide staff with numerous opportunities to enhance their skills.”

General Manager of Silverlink and Morpeth Benfield John Cuthbertson said: “Benfield is a family owned business and seeks to look after its staff in the same way it treats its customers. Anthony has worked incredibly hard for the company and therefore we are delighted to announce his appointment to further his Benfield career.”
