The role of Transaction Manager was advertised at the end of October and saw a great number of applications, both internally and externally. When Michael saw the opportunity; he believed he was ready to progress his career and up into a management position. Michael said “I applied for it as I knew I was ready for a manager position and I want to progress through the roles within Birchwood as I like the people I work with; the cars and that Birchwood feels like a family run business rather than a massive corporate machine. Birchwood feels like home, and I believe that I can bring something extra to the role and continue making Birchwood Ford Eastbourne the best dealership within our group, and the south east.”

Matt Finnis, General Sales Manager of Birchwood Ford Eastbourne discovered over the last seven months, Michael’s commitment to the brand and Birchwood, his methodical approach and attention to detail. Matt commented “After seeing a number of very capable candidates, I chose Michael as I’ve seen how far he has come; not only is he committed, but always goes above and beyond with every task or objective he’s been set. As a bonus, he’s experienced with the systems we use and the way I like to work. Promoting from within is far better in my opinion as it demonstrates our continued investment in people and that career progression is possible. Plus, with Michael I know what kind of a manager I’m getting, and that’s one who is very driven and that lives the Birchwood Values.”
