Ben Blandford Picks Up Best Sales Exec Award

Anyone who visits Lightcliffe Skoda will immediately sense the “esprit de corps” between the sales executives, and one might even assume they were all the best of friends. Whilst this is not far from the truth, they would also be the first to admit that there's nothing like a bit of healthy competition to sharpen the sales instincts, and our professional team of execs at Lightcliffe are no exception to this rule. 

However, some sales executives will defy gravity by consistently breaking records against all odds.

Ben Blandford is one of those executives.    

Winning "Salesman Of The Year” for three years on the bounce is no mean feat and even though there have been more than a few wry smiles at the morning sales meetings this week all of Ben's fellow executives were quick to congratulate their friend and colleague.  

To sell 192 cars in any year is some going, but in the year of lockdown it is an even more remarkable achievement.

In true "Ben" style he will deflect praise and tell you that he is nothing special and impute his phenomenal record to good fortune.

His colleagues on the other hand will tell you quite categorically that this achievement is not luck, but attributed to a calm affable personality, exemplary sales technique and hard work.

Whatever the reason the facts don't lie and Ben's third award in as many years is thoroughly deserved. 

Congratulations from all of us Ben

Clare James Automotive Limited is an Appointed Representative of Automotive Compliance Ltd, who is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA No 497010). Automotive Compliance Ltd’s permissions as a Principal Firm allow Clare James Automotive Limited to act as a credit broker, not as a lender, for the introduction to a limited number of lenders and to act as an agent on behalf of the insurer for insurance distribution activities only.
We can introduce you to a selected panel of lenders, which includes Volkswagen Financial Services. An introduction to a lender does not amount to independent financial advice and we act as their agent for this introduction. Our approach is to introduce you first to Volkswagen Financial Services, who are usually able to offer the best available package for you, taking into account both interest rates and other contributions. If they are unable to make you an offer of finance, we then seek to introduce you to whichever of the other lenders on our panel is able to make the next best offer of finance for you. Our aim is to secure the best deal you are eligible for from our panel of lenders. Lenders may pay a fixed commission to us for introducing you to them, calculated by reference to the vehicle model or amount you borrow. Different lenders may pay different commissions for such introductions, and Volkswagen Financial Services also provide preferential rates to us for the funding of our vehicle stock and also provide financial support for our training and marketing. But any such amounts they and other lenders pay us will not affect the amounts you pay under your finance agreement, all of which are set by the lender concerned. If you ask us what the amount of commission is, we will tell you in good time before the Finance agreement is executed. All finance applications are subject to status, terms, and conditions apply, UK residents only, 18’s or over. Guarantees may be required.
