A mechanic who worked his way up the management ladder will now lead the way at a South Tyneside company’s Used Car Outlet.
Norman Shepherd has been named as the new manager of the outlet based in Newcastle Road, South Shields, run by Jennings Motor Group.
He was previously working from the group’s Mitsubishi franchise in Middlesbrough.
Having gained more than three decades of valuable knowledge and experience working in a variety of roles for a number of motor dealers across the region, Norman, who initially served his time as a mechanic, is looking forward to the challenges ahead.
He said: “This is an excellent opportunity for me and one I am very much looking forward to.
“All the vehicles we have on display on the forecourt are reliable, affordable and offer peace of mind motoring to customers.
“Specifically selected from trade vehicles sourced across the group, they are simply too good to go to auction.”
The Jennings Used Car Outlet displays up to 100 used and approved vehicles. Finance packages are also available.
