John Hands Keys To New Lightcliffe GM Nick

When a member of staff moves on to new pastures it often engenders a mixture of emotions and whilst loyal friends and colleagues will be happy for that person to seek the next chapter of their life journey the news will always be tinged with an element of sadness.


So it is with a slightly heavy heart that we announce the departure of our long-standing friend and colleague John Sharp who will no longer be general manager here at Lightcliffe Skoda.


John joined the business nearly 10 years ago briefly as sales manager then taking over the stewardship of the dealership in 2016. 


His cheerful demeanour was always popular with customers and his particular brand of management, namely treating all staff with care and respect in equal measure, was greatly appreciated by his colleagues.


Joining the dealership after several years as top salesman at nearby Halliwell BMW John helped to steer Lightcliffe through unchartered times, including the significant move towards electric vehicles and the Covid pandemic which was one of the biggest challenges that the motor industry has seen for decades.


John formally handed the keys over to incumbent general manager Nick Price last week who also brings a wealth of experience to the job and spent a couple of weeks inducting Nick into the exciting world of the Skoda Auto!


Nick also worked his way through the ranks to become a general manager for Renault and had great success in the used car supermarket space which again is a considerable achievement in the current climate.


One thing they both have in common is an amiable personality and convivial style of management which is probably why Nick has been immediately welcomed with open arms by all the team here at Lightcliffe. 


So Bienvenu to Nick, Bon Voyage to John,  and wherever the next chapter of your life leads John, you take with you the very best wishes from all of your colleagues here at Lightcliffe.

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.
