This July, our SLM Toyota Hastings Centre welcomes Ben Beeden to the sales team as our newest Sales Executive. He joins us with excellent experience in new car sales, a thirst for knowledge, and with inspiring enthusiasm and energy – we knew the moment we met him, that he’d be superb for our customers.
Ben has most recently held positions at a local Renault dealership, where he initially joined at the Tunbridge Wells branch as a Product Genius, where he was accountable for having meticulous knowledge of the technology and features of the cars, allowing him to be able to offer customers insightful ‘tours’ of the vehicles, and their features. Ben was then given the opportunity to move into a Sales Executive role at the dealership’s Eastbourne branch, where he gained valuable experience helping customers to buy new cars. These roles have armed Ben with the knowledge, experience and work ethic that makes him an extremely insightful and informative Sales Executive.
Recently, Ben heard of the position that had opened up with our Toyota Hastings Centre, and felt compelled to throw his hat in the ring. When we asked him what made him apply for the role, he said: “After hearing of the job opening through the sales manager outside of work, I quickly learned about the attitudes of the team and the staff at Toyota, and the enthusiastic approach to their work made me sure that I wanted to be part of the team.”
No surprise, given Ben’s experience and fascination with car tech and features, when we asked him what his favourite car in the current Toyota range is, he said: “My Favourite car in the Toyota range is easily the PHEV Rav. The performance it displays for a car of its size is incredible, and the comfort features are top class for the price range.”. We know what you mean Ben, the RAV4 Plug-In prides itself on features that make it an intelligent, yet comfortable car.
Outside of work, Ben’s hobbies match the enthusiasm and energy that we noticed when we first met him. He says: “Outside of work I like to keep active by playing tennis, studying Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and also playing Cards. The busier the better!”.
A very warm welcome to the team Ben!
You can meet Ben and the rest of the team at our SLM Toyota Hastings Centre.
