Lewis’ first role in the motor industry was as a valetor /driver at Lottbridge Motoring Centre in Eastbourne. Lewis spent 6 months there before starting a delivery driver’s job at Euro Car Parts Eastbourne. From being a driver, Lewis worked his way through the ranks over 3.5 years becoming a warehouse operative, then warehouse supervisor, to sales advisor and finally the dispatch manager. After leaving Euro car parts Lewis had a short stint at Birchwood Ford Eastbourne before starting at SLM Toyota.
Lewis has been at SLM for about a month now in his new position as a parts advisor at SLM Toyota Hastings. Lewis came to work at SLM Toyota as he wanted to expand his parts knowledge on hybrid vehicles, as it’s not something he has dealt with often. SLM Toyota Hastings is also much closer to home for Lewis, so it was an ideal opportunity.
Lewis finds fulfilling the customers needs and seeing them leave with a smile on their face the most rewarding part of his job. He is excited to start at SLM Toyota, although he is not sure what to expect, he is looking forward to finding out.
Lewis’ first car was an M reg Renault clio, which he had for three years, costing him just £300. Lewis’ favourite car in the Toyota range is an old style Celica, however he has not had the opportunity to drive one just yet.
Outside of work Lewis enjoys playing football, running 5 days a week, competing in half marathons and other smaller races and is looking at doing a full marathon soon!
Here at SLM Toyota Hastings we would like to wish Lewis the best of luck and we all look forward to working with him.
