Mark has been a motor trader for thirty years. Mark enjoys meeting people and has a very broad sense of humour which is enjoyed by both staff and customers... or so he seems to think. Mark is a farmer and a pilot and enjoys a range of hobbies which include sailing and skiing.
When she’s not travelling you will find Paula busying herself in the background in the Accounts Department, she brings organisation to the Company. Paula enjoys a good walk with the dog and loves her skiing holidays. She has been Mark’s partner for thirty years now... but we don’t hold that against her.
James has now been in the retail motor industry for twenty five years (five years less than Mark) and brings his own unique humour to the office, which combined with Mark’s, all adds to your car purchase experience – seeing many customers return time after time. James likes to spend his rare time away from the garage enjoying a social drink, a private drink or a family drink and just spending quality time with his much loved dog, Brian.
Apart from a long list of qualifications Herby has forty years of experience as head tech and foreman and still loves being a mechanic. He enjoys seeing customers and if he can’t fix it – no-one can! Herby has many talents and hobbies, he enjoys socialising with a wide circle of friends, he loves to shoot and enjoyed a previous life as a Diving Instructor.
Adrian has thirty years of experience as a mechanic and is one of our longest serving members of staff – having been at Elm Tree for twenty five years. Adrian specialises in Land Rover and 4x4 vehicles and looks forward to pay day. Adrian likes spending time with his family and is quite partial to a trip to Peppa Pig World.
Pete once met the Queen and Prince Philip at Buckingham palace! He worked with Honda for 20 years but now has a much broader car brand horizon.
Pete lives locally with his wife Rose and his heart-winning little dog Stanley.
Roger basically does anything that he is asked to do. He does enjoy his job but loves Ultra Running and Canoeing. Roger loves it all.
As well as the accounts side, Dave is also the ‘go to’ person for all transport questions. Dave was too busy to pose for a photograph.
Jim has now been working with Mark for thirty years. He is a keen drummer and rides his motor bike to work when the sun shines – at 25 mph.
Neil also looks after Mark’s farm – you name it Neil can do it! We do think he is beginning to prefer cows to people.
Nigel joined us mostly to take the photographs and help poor old James out .. we're hoping you will notice the difference. He's been a friend of Mark's for almost 40 years - this job is a reward for that terrible bad luck and after 30 years in the police force it's time he started doing some work!
Nicci enjoys spending time with her family, photography, attending music gigs and theatre concerts, eating an afternoon tea, and (most interestingly for locals) painting and hiding stones .......... nice to have a lunatic in the office!
Kevin works alongside Jimmy for all your body shop needs – he and Herby go back many years! If he is not spending quality time with his Grandchild you will find him in his man cave brewing beer which is, from experience, rather good.
Charlie is “Front of House” when you come into our Service Department, she will organise your booking from start to finish. Charlie is a soft touch when it comes to dogs, her main love is her Cocker “Panda” and if you bring yours in you may well get preferential treatment! Her other interests range from one extreme to another.... if she isn’t kayaking or enjoying outdoor pursuits she loves to knit!
Rich is our Site Manager and runs car valeting. He keeps everything pristine. Rich enjoys his time off travelling in his Motor Home. He is quite a character and keeps us all entertained, he is also a legend on the dance floor.
Ben compliments our workshop team perfectly. If you ask him about his hobbies he will say bikes and cars, so coming in to work must be a dream!
