Andrew has held the position of Centre Principal at SLM Toyota Norwich for the last few years, in which space of time he has shown unrivalled commitment not just to SLM Group, but also to the Toyota brand. He has been an exemplary leader, and helped to maintain staff focus through an exceptionally difficult year. Therefore, it was a perfect fit to recognise Andrew’s skills and offer him this opportunity.
With 30 years experience in the motoring industry, Andrew brings a wealth of knowledge from working with brands including Volvo, Jaguar/Land Rover, BMW, Nissan, and Toyota for the last 6 years. He originally started his career within the finance and leasing industry, before moving into the automotive dealership environment, initially in corporate sales before taking on the challenge of the retail sector.
Tapping into this diverse experience, Andrew has crafted his managerial skills over the last 17 years holding various leadership positions, before joining SLM Toyota as our Norwich Toyota Centre's Centre Principal, in which he has thrived and made excellent progress with his teams.
Andrew says “I’m relishing the new challenge, albeit with the added dimension of COVID compliance making for an interesting first couple of months!”. He also commented on strategy that he’s applying to his new role: “The focus is to drive consistent and exceptional customer service and customer orientated processes, with our teams aligned to the fantastic and ever-evolving Toyota product offering”.
Congratulations on your new role Andrew, from all at SLM Group!
