Meet the people behind Promotors Limited
After 18 years in corporate banking, Clyde set up Promotors in 2007 and the company has grown from strength to strength based on a set of simple core values. Sourcing and preparing quality high specification vehicles, marketing them to highest standard using the latest internet innovations and above all providing our customers with a friendly unpressurised customer experience.
Clyde lives in Bournemouth with Helen (who is also the bookkeeper) and their two boys who love their football and cricket. Outside of cars, Clyde's interests include skiing, playing golf very badly, cycling and curry! Recent cycling trips have included Lands End to John O'Groats, Bournemouth to Paris and many mountain bike trips to the Alps.
Richard: Showroom Manager
Richard has over 30 years experience in the Motor Trade having worked for Porsche, Ford and a Rolls Royce specialist and loves selling cars with a smile on his face. Richard used to professionally race Sierra Cosworths back in the day and now comes in the showroom on a sunny day dressed like Street Hawk in leathers having ridden in on his latest mean machine. Richard also lives in Bournemouth with his wife and has swapped his running marathons and playing golf for fine wine and dining!....although is still threatening to get his running shoes back out. Great sense of humour and enjoys building long lasting relationships with our customers.
Louis: Photographer, Detailer and Tech
Louis has three main passions in his life (apart from his girlfriend!) which are cars, graphic design and photography.....oh and his food. Louis also ran his own valeting / detailing business as a hobby, so coming to the showroom each day is a dream job (apart from his horrible commute through Poole). Louis always has a smile on his face, even when he's eating!
Neil: Valeter / Detailer
Neil has over 20 years experience in preparing cars to a high standard having spent the last 7 years at a local main agent and prior to running a boat handing business. A true family man, he comes to work with a smile on his face and takes pride in preparing our cars to a very high standard and is also AutoGlym trained. Although we are slowly swinging Neil's interest in cars towards the German brands, his face lights up no more than when asked to prepare an Alfa or an Abarth....other than when cakes are brought in!
Gary: Valeter / Detailer
Gary originally trained as a British Gas service engineer, since moved into the motor trade and is the latest addition to our team. Again AutoGlym trained, Gary shares a passion for all things car related.
