All Staff Memo: Matt Kidd
Please see Nigel Hurley’s announcement below which, as I write, is going out across the Group.
Matt has made an outstanding contribution to our business over the years, whilst overseeing an increase in our yearly sales volumes of approximately 80% since he took over as General Sales Manager. I would like to take this opportunity to say that Matt has been a great colleague to work with and add my personal thanks for his support, which I have always enjoyed. As Nigel mentions, I am really delighted with Matt’s appointment into this role and I am sure you will all join me in offering him our very best wishes for his future success.
Matt and I will work between us to ensure that the transition is as smooth as possible.
Managing Director Sytner Nottingham
Head of Business Sytner Nottingham BMW/MINI/ALPINA
I am delighted to announce the well-deserved promotion of Matt Kidd to Head of Business at our Nottingham operation commencing from 1st January 2017. Matt, who started with Sytner Nottingham as a Sales Executive in 1999 with Sytner Direct, progressed into Sales Management 2 years later and was promoted to General Sales Manager in 2007. In that time he has built and managed a team who are a benchmark for the Division and the BMW/MINI network for sales performance, customer and team satisfaction. His sales executive staff turnover is the lowest in the Division and he has been a consistent upper quartile CSI performer. Indeed for the full year of 2015 finished 4th in the Country.
John Quigley who has mentored Matt for many years will continue to do so until further notice as Matt now sets out to replace himself as GSM and start to plan how he is going to take on the challenge ahead. At this point it is worth once again thanking John Quigley for his outstanding leadership of Nottingham for many years, I know he is personally delighted to have Matt as his successor.
I am sure you will join me in congratulating Matt and wishing him well in his new role.
