VEHICLE BODY TECHNICIANS



JASON WEST SNR

TEAM MANAGER


Jason is the longest serving team member at Acklam Car Centre joining way back before the current proprietors took over in 2001. As a result Jason is synonymous with Acklam Car Centre as a company knowing all of our suppliers, contractors, customers and friends of the business inside out. He works alongside fellow team manager Andy Marsh in ensuring the running of the forecourt, website and car detailing is optimum and efficient. Jason's son is also a member of the team heading the Marketing & IT Support department.

Outside of work Jason enjoys spending time with his family including wife Rachel and granddaughter Alyssia. He enjoys carp fishing whenever he can and jetting off to the Greek islands for a spot of relaxation.



ANDY MARSH

TEAM MANAGER


Prior to becoming a member of our team over 14 years ago, Andy was a regular customer who purchased a number of vehicles from the dealership. During this time Andy got an insight into how organised and efficient the dealership was which when the opportunity to join us arose, made the decision for him an easy one! Since joining Acklam Car Centre, Andy alongside Jason has built up some fantastic relationships with our customers and suppliers.

Outside of work Andy enjoys watching football and is a big Newcastle United supporter. He also enjoys comedy shows but most importantly, he enjoys spending time with his family and new granddaughter which is his priority in life.

During his time at the dealership Andy has had the pleasure of driving a vast range of makes and models, but his favourite would have to be the BMW X5 3.0 XDRIVE 30D as its an ideal family vehicle.


DAVE CLAPP

VEHICLE TECHNICIAN




If you have ever had the privilege of dealing with Acklam Car Centre, you will have undoubtedly come across Dave whom has multiple roles within the dealership. Dave joined us back in 2007 and has in his own words "loved every minute of it". Dave particularly enjoys coming in to contact with our wonderful and varied customers from around the country and abroad.

Dave is enjoying being part of a top team and is now into his 10th year. He is as keen to take us forward as he was on day one!

MARTIN ERVING

VEHICLE TECHNICIAN



Martin is about to enter his 4th year at the dealership after spending time in a similar role before joining us. He is a hard working professional and conducts himself in a good manner. You can count on him to finish a task from start to finish to an Acklam Car Centre standard which is invaluable to the Team Managers.

Martin has recently became a granddad and therefor enjoys spending even more time with the family. On the odd free occasion he finds enough time to go and watch a passion of his in the form of Boxing and also attend some of his favourite comedians' shows.
