Car dealership Pebley Beach welcomes Swindon born Chris Woods as new service manager


If Chris Woods face looks familiar, it will be because he grew up in Swindon and has spent 40 years in the towns motor trade.

Now, the proud Swindonian has become the new service manager at Hyundai and Suzuki dealership Pebley Beach in Paddington Drive.
 
Starting young

Chris started in the motor trade at the age of 15, straight after leaving school. He married Jackie at the age of 18 and they raised their four children at their Kingshill home.

When hes not helping customers with their motoring needs, Chris loves watching Swindon Town play: he and his son David are season ticket holders.

Before coming to Pebley Beach, Chris worked for for Vauxhall dealership Skurrays, which was sold earlier this year, for 14 years.
 

I like being part of a family firm, said Chris. I like the environment, and I appreciate that the owner of the business is working beside me, not in an office in London.

At Skurrays they called me a legend, because Id been there so long, said Chris. Im not a legend here yet but Im working on it!

Train to Leave programme

Chris replaces Martin Treby, who has moved to Nissans flagship showroom in Cribbs Causeway, Bristol as part of Pebley Beachs innovative Train to Leave programme.

The programme seeks to promote employees through the company, and help them secure positions outside the company when they have achieved all they can at Pebley Beach.
