Sytner Group are delighted to congratulate Joe Macdonald, Front of House – Service Supervisor at Guy Salmon Land Rover Maidstone, who not only secured a place as a finalist at The Motor Trader Rising Stars event but was also, awarded a “Highly Commended” certificate.
Alan Eldridge Head of Business accompanied Joe at the event held at The Grosvenor House Hotel.
Joe applied for a role with Sytner through a general advert looking for a Trainee Sales Executive. As part of the assessment centre, he instantly made an impression upon the managers assessing the day.
He demonstrated enthusiasm and energy and we were delighted to offer him a role. Joe then approached his line manager in February 2019 to pitch for his new role in Aftersales, we were again delighted to offer him the opportunity.
For the third year running, Sytner nominated five Rising Stars across the company and we were lucky enough to reach the final with one our entries.
Rising Stars is an industry search for the next generation of leaders. This is for colleagues who are already regarded as having outstanding talents, great business acumen and seen as an inspiration to their peers.
Anyone who has joined the sector in the last five years was able to enter, inviting colleagues involved in all areas of car retailing, regardless of job title, from sales and aftersales to administration and management. We'd like to once again say well done and congratulations to Joe on his fantastic achievement! We're excited to see how his career progresses over the coming years.
