Damon Celebrates 20 Years as Parts Manager

Loyalty is a rare commodity in this day and age not least in the automotive industry where inter-dealership associations and referrals are commonplace resulting in a higher-than-average level of headhunting.  So, when a highly respected and competent manager hits the 20 year milestone it’s definitely cause for celebration. 


Damon Tew (or “Damo” as he is affectionately known to all of us here at Lightcliffe ) is just one of those people.  Trained as a cabinet maker, Damon was originally at Liverpool Honda and moved over to Warrington after it’s acquisition by the Lightcliffe group to become Parts Manager. Embracing the challenge of a new brand and dealership at the same time is no mean feat so Damon immediately set to work, learning a new inventory of several thousand parts and even committing individual part numbers to his legendary photographic memory as part of the process. 


Typically modest and genuinely humbled by the award, Damon was effusive when presneted with the award; “This  was something I was not expecting at all …. the last twenty years has flown by and made easier with the people I work with” Adding that he was looking forward to the next twenty years Damon, accepted the £200 voucher and bottle if fizz with characteristic modesty and good grace. 


“It actually fills me with pride to present this award” said GM John shown here in the picture with Damon. “Damon has always set a really good example to the younger members of staff with his diligence and hard work, and I speak on behalf of all of us here when I express my gratitude for his contribution”


Congratulations “Damo” from everyone at Lightcliffe and we all wish you another 20 successful years in the business.

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.
