    Dan Jenkins - Head of Business, Westover ŠKODA, Wallisdown

    Now aged 34, Dan Jenkins wasted no time stamping his mark on the Westover Group. He joined the company nine years ago (with an impressive eight years motor trade experience already under his belt) and went on to become one of the Group’s youngest sales managers, taking on the role at the age of 28.

    He was promoted to Head of Business in September 2015 and now leads Westover ŠKODA's business operations - spanning sales, service, parts and bodyshop - from a purpose built showroom on Wallisdown Road in Bournemouth.

    Dan started his career with Westover as a sales executive at the company's Toyota showroom in Salisbury. Born and bred in Salisbury, Dan attended Westwood St Thomas school before starting his first job at Craze Brothers Peugeot in 2000 as a Trainee.

    Since moving to ŠKODA, he’s played an instrumental role in building the business. Sales have increased rapidly during his headship and the dealership continues to go from strength to strength, thanks to Dan’s focus and determination. On a daily basis, Dan’s role is vast and varied and sees him wearing a number of different hats, including motivating and managing his team, controlling new and used vehicle stock flow, filing financial and management reports, ensuring exceptional customer service standards and devising marketing campaigns for both the sales and servicing departments.

    Dan says ‘’I enjoy working at Westover - every day is varied and there are always new challenges to deal with, plus it's gratifying to have my hard work rewarded with promotions.’’
