We are very happy to announce the arrival of our new Centre Principal for Toyota Wakefield, Simon Parkin. He has fully settled in now and is looking forward to his future with Toyota.
Simon Parkin has been part of the Vantage family since the start of 2017 and has worked with several different franchises during his career. He’s excited to experience the full range of cars that Toyota have to offer. So far, he has been very impressed by the Hilux that he is currently driving and Toyota’s commitment to greener technologies.
Simon started out in the motor industry as far back as 1994 after he completed an engineering apprenticeship but happened across the exciting change in career.
Simon says that he likes working at Toyota Wakefield as his team are all very engaged and want to make a difference and create a fantastic customer experience. Simon says that working closely with the Senior Directors at Vantage makes it easier to make things happen and react to the market, creating a better buying experience for his customers.
When he’s not at work his favourite thing to do is spend time with his family, aside from this he likes to keep fit which is always important in such a fast-paced environment. Simon believes he can make a difference through helping and supporting others to get the same experiences in life that he has had. He’s a dedicated, passionate Yorkshireman and we can’t wait to see him take Toyota Wakefield from strength to strength with the support of his team.
