SERVICE AND AFTERCARE MANAGER
Claire, like many of our team, has been with us since we sold our first car in 2001. Through hard work and determination she has worked her way up the ladder to where she is today. She is passionate about looking after all of our customers both past and present to the highest standards and does so with confidence. She prides herself on providing 100% customer satisfaction and has priceless knowledge and experience within the motor trade.
Claire in her free time loves to go on small breaks away and spending time with the family. She also follows her sons football teams cheering them on every week without fail.
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.
