Change at the top for Wayside Van Centre

A new management team has taken the helm at Milton Keynes’ Volkswagen Van Centre, creating a truly local approach to supporting businesses in the area.

The Bletchley Van Centre, part of the Wayside Group, has invested in its new team with the appointment of three key individuals from the area bringing with them over 60 years of automotive experience to the site.

Duncan Sands (46) from Furzton has been appointed to lead the team as brand director for the Wayside Group and head of business, having worked at Volkswagen Group’s Head Office within the Commercial Vehicle for over 19 years. Duncan’s national dealership experience provides him with the skills and passion to deliver exceptional customer service and business development.

Duncan’s new management team includes Mark Stevens (38) from Clophill, who has been appointed as retail sales manager and Paul Robertson (37) from Tattenhoe, who has been appointed to the role of fleet sales manager.

Mark has spent the past 15 years successfully selling commercial vehicles for several manufacturers and will be sharing his knowledge and enthusiasm with the showroom sales team. Boasting over 20 years of automotive know how, Paul has worked for high profile brands, such as Mercedes, advising fleet managers at international level on how to get the most out of their commercial vehicles.

The new recruits will join recently promoted Aftersales Manager Buck Rogers (28) from Willen who has worked at Wayside Van Centre for over 12 years. Having worked his way through the Van Centre, starting as an apprentice technician and later becoming a service advisor, Buck has established excellent working relationships with many customers and local businesses.

Speaking of the new team Duncan said: “Our customers can be confident that they will receive the very best service from our staff here at Wayside. With our new team now in place, we are completely committed to providing a first class service. Whether our customers are looking at buying new or used vans, buying parts or accessories, or using our fully equipped workshop for service or repair.

“We really understand that their vans are tools of their trade and we are determined to provide a service that recognises this. Our customers operate vans to support their business, if the van is off the road, their business stops and we understand this”.

“Our team is now in place to drive our business forward, making sure that all of our customers go away completely satisfied, whatever their reason for visiting or getting in touch.”
