Mel Ball, Marketing Manager celebrates 29 years of service at SLM on Wednesday 28th September.
Mel started her career at SLM Fiat in Churchwood Drive as a sales administrator and then moved to join the team at SLM Toyota in Bexhill to carry out their sales admin duties. After 10 years, Mel decided she would like a career change and took on the role of Marketing Manager for the Toyota franchise.
Currently, Mel works at our Hastings and Uckfield Toyota branches looking after marketing, organising staff training, website content, social media, database administration and car promotions.
Mel says, "I can't believe it has been that long, I can still remember my first day. SLM have looked after me very well and I am still enjoying working for them. Because they are a family run business they do care about their staff and listen to any ideas that you have to improve and move the business forwards."
Ian Wakeford, Managing Director, "In the 29 years that I have known and worked with Mel she has developed from a slightly shy and very capable sales clerk, to the point that she is now as Marketing Manager, one of the most important parts of our team at SLM. We are blessed to have her with us and equally blessed to have known her - I just cannot believe it is 29 years!!
Congratulations to Mel Ball for her outstanding service at SLM!
