Mat Carrington Oversees Poole's Fiat, Hyundai, Peugeot, and Renault Showrooms
There's a new Head of Business leading the teams at four of the Westover Group's showrooms in Poole. Mat Carrington has taken over the helm at Westover Fiat, Hyundai, Peugeot and Renault, which are all adjacent to one another on Wallisdown Road. Mat knows the industry and the area well - he joins Westover from Mercedes, where he was General Sales Manager for nine years, and he lives in Wimborne.
Previous Head of Business for the locations, Julian Saunders, has moved to Westover's West Quay Road operation, where he now heads up the Group's Jaguar, Lexus and Sports Cars business.
“I started with Westover in April and I'm full of enthusiasm for this next stage of my career," says Mat. “The brands I'm working with are each growing quickly within their sectors and we genuinely have something for everyone, so this is a very exciting place to be. Plus, the facilities here are some of the best in the area – our Hyundai and Renault showrooms have been completely redeveloped this year and we have a large service centre too, equipped with the latest diagnostic equipment and staffed by a highly skilled, manufacturer-trained team.
“I was tempted to Westover by the fantastic career opportunities that come with being part of a large and successful Group. I'm really enjoying the diversity of working with four great teams and the challenges that come with managing a collection of different manufacturer showrooms, plus I'm learning lots from Westover's brand, sales and service mangers in the showrooms who have been incredibly helpful and welcoming.
“Our aim, as always, remains to deliver the best possible customer service and I hope that's something I can contribute to and enhance having cut my teeth with a premium manufacturer. We want our visitors to be able to move seamlessly from one Westover brand to the next, experiencing the same high standards whichever Group showroom they visit.
"The company is really forward thinking, open to all suggestions to improve service delivery and really ahead of the game when it comes to embracing new technology. The focus is on the customer at every stage of the process."
“I feel privileged to be working with such a great array of cars and am genuinely excited about my future here at Westover," finishes Mat.
Westover Group also has three other showrooms on Wallisdown Road – Westover Nissan, Westover Skoda and Westover Toyota.
