SLM Vauxhall welcomes new Sales Executive Steve Taphouse

SLM Tunbridge Wells are delighted to welcome new Sales Executive, Steve Taphouse to the Group. 

  • Barring a few brief periods, Steve has actually worked for Vauxhall in Tonbridge since 1998, so brings plenty of experience to SLM Group. 
    As a Sales Executive, Steve is looking forward to continuing his passion of selling cars and providing outstanding customer service. “I like talking to people, and I get a buzz from making a sale.”.  
    Steve has always enjoyed service and sales roles, ever since his first job – at Barclays bank. He said “The first year or so had a very corporate feel about it. But from then the job involved quite a lot of socialising and service, which was very fun for me.”. 
    Steve’s first ever car was an Austin Metro 1L in peppermint green, a car that he refers to as ‘The Dreadful Mobile’! That sounds like a far cry from Steve’s favourite ever Vauxhall vehicle: “For me, the best Vauxhall ever made was the Astra Sport Hatch XP in metro Blue. I owned one at a very memorable time in my life”. Great choice, Steve. 
    We asked about what Steve listens to in the car on journeys, he said: “For short journeys I prefer podcasts, at the moment I’m listening to the Hawksbee & Jacobs podcast, it’s great.”. And for long journeys “I enjoy listening to heavy metal, so anything by Iron Maiden!”. 
    In his spare time, Steve enjoys writing and taking portrait photos of landscapes. “It’s easier than portraits as people move too much!”. 
    If he could have a 24-hour holiday anywhere in the world, Steve would pack up and fly to New York. “I had the best holiday there, so I would welcome the chance to go back.”. 
    You can meet Steve and the rest of the team at SLM Tunbridge Wells.
