BILL LATIMER - HEAD OF BUSINESS
DAVID LAKE - GENERAL SALES MANAGER
I started in the Motor Trade in 2002 (aged 21) as a Junior Sales Executive at Renault (Main Dealer) and spent ten years working up to the Sales Manager position. I have since worked with German brands, Audi, BMW and Mercedes and now Jaguar Land Rover at Beadles Southend - all of these roles have been in the Senior Management team. I have seen the motor trade evolve over the years but I still have a great passion for the industry and product.
IAN COOPER - SALES MANAGER
I began my automotive career as a Sales Executive just over 15 years ago. From there I progressed to New Car Controller, Business Manager and now as Sales Manager. I believe in order to succeed and progress, you need to accomplish and succeed in the roles beneath first. This has provided me with a foundation of experience and understanding for the team I now work with.
I have always had a passion for cars, even before I could say the word, and having recently joined the Jaguar Land Rover brand, I am overwhelmed at what a fantastic product we have to offer. I am excited to be part of the company’s growth over the coming years and believe it is paramount in having a customer centric approach in everything we do.
HASSAN HUSSEIN - TRANSACTION MANAGER
TOM BARNETT - TRANSACTION MANAGER
I began my career in the motor trade as a Parts Advisor for Volvo in 2004, moving to the Service Department a year later. I spent the next 4 years working in a dual franchise dealer. I moved to a Senior Service Advisor role in 2008 at a BMW main dealer where I spent the next 10 years, moving from Service and into the Sales Department.
I moved through the Sales Department and was promoted to Transaction Manager in 2014, recently leaving to take on the same role here and Beadles Jaguar Land Rover, two brands I have always aspired to be a part of; with the biggest attraction being our brand new luxury showroom – it certainly makes coming to work easier.
I’ve always had a passion for cars, which makes doing my job so much more enjoyable, the biggest kick is helping customers find and purchase their dream car. I’m excited for this new chapter in my career and the progression possible at this company.
Myself and the team look forward to welcoming you to the dealership soon.
GRAEME JOSLIN - AFTERSALES MANAGER
I have been in the automotive industry since leaving school (32 years). I started on the workshop floor and worked my way through the levels into management. I have a great understanding of the industry and the customers. Achieving a high level of customer and staff satisfaction is my daily motivation. The team at Beadles Land Rover Southend look forward to welcoming you to our brand new business due to be completed this summer.
STEVEN GLADWIN - PARTS MANAGER
I have worked in the motor trade, dealing with main dealer parts, for 24 years. My favourite car as a boy was always Jaguar, I had lots of models of the old E-TYPEs! I have two young sons and their favourite cars are Jaguar’s and my wife loves Land Rover's, so working for these brands is perfect for me as I’m very passionate about the brands. Our Parts Team are also very passionate in helping our customers with their Land Rover's parts requirements! I look forward to our new state of the art arch concept site opening this summer 2018 and look forward to seeing you there!
