Hi, I’m James and I cover Devon and Cornwall.
I started my working life in the retail industry working within a department store, I got to a point where I fancied a change, and before I’d given it a huge amount of thought I had landed an interview to become a Sales Executive. I’ve been in the motor trade for 6 years now at a multi-franchise main dealer, working my way through the ranks from Sales Executive to Sales Controller and Business Manager. From selling my first car, I was absolutely hooked, and the trade has had me ever since.
The finance side of the business was always something that intrigued me, and I always maintained great relationships with the account managers that visited the site. Now I’ve been fortunate enough to have the opportunity to join Connected Car Finance. I’m enjoying getting stuck into learning all I can about the business, there are already so many things I wish I had access to when I was in dealerships!
Although I will miss the day-to-day dealership environment, I really love getting stuck into working with, and making a difference to the dealers in my area.
Away from work, I’ve got my wife Olivia and 2 cats (that the wife treats better than me). Living in the southwest, I’ve got beautiful scenery and beaches in every direction, so I try to spend as much time as I can exploring and going for walks! Any chance I get, I like to take my old Volkswagen Transporter to Cornwall to go camping!
