Meet The Team

Brand Manager, Austin Seales

Austin began his exceptionally well versed career in the motoring industry as an assistant cost clerk 18 years ago. Since then he has worked as a Service Advisor, Warranty administrator, Workshop Controller, Service Manager, Aftersales Manager and now he deservedly holds the title of Brand Manager at Kings Lynn Volkswagen. He has been responsible for winning both individual and team awards with several manufacturers for attaining No1 positions for Customer Service, a quality that is well respected within the Marriot Motor Group. Austin joined us in January 2007, since when he has continued winning awards and gained many Brand recognised qualifications.

Involvement with local communities and charities is a key element of the Marriott Motor Group and to this end Austin has supported the Round Norfolk Relay race for the previous two years. Sponsorship of the Swaffham Golf Club Professional along with single event support for local charity events are also part of the Kings Lynn Volkswagen make up.

On a personal front, Austin enjoys walking, football, running and golf.

When asked to comment on his aspirations for Kings Lynn Volkswagen, he said, "Kings Lynn Volkswagen is extremely proud to be part of the Marriott Motor Group and to represent one of the leading motor manufacturers in the UK. Having acquired this existing business in February 2011, we can boast a wealth of experience supported by a highly loyal and skilled team along with a number of new faces all with one thing in common: Every one of us shares the passion and determination to ensure that all of our customers remain at the very heart of everything we do.

General Sales Manager, Paul Underhill

I have been working in the motor industry for over ten years, providing an excellent service for several brands. Initially as a Sales Executive, however more recently as a Business Manager and now as the General Sales Manager for Kings Lynn Volkswagen.

When away from the business, my hobbies are Football and Golf however this is likely to change as my wife and I have recently become parents for the first time.

Assistant Sales Manager, Aaron Devlin

I started with the motor trade in 2007 as a trainee sales executive and over the next few years I held various positions within the sales department whilst gaining valuable skills and experience. I started my role as a transaction manager in 2012 and am extremely proud to have managed the team to a no.1 sales position within the Volkswagen network. 

I have a huge passion for Volkswagen and my whole motor trade career has been within the Volkswagen group. I enjoy classic Volkswagens having owned a number of Beetles but have now moved on to a range of Golfs.

I have been married since 2010 and although I have no children we have a Shepardoodle called Lila. I enjoy keeping fit and a range of other outdoor activities and especially enjoy a beach holiday.  I hope over the course of the next few years learn to play the piano and to fly a plane.

Transaction Manager, Robert Taylor

I joined the motor trade in January 2010 in Bury St Edmunds. After gaining valuable experience within the business, I joined the Marriott Motor Group as a Sales Executive in December 2014. My drive was to provide myself with better opportunities and when the position of Transaction Manager became available here at Kings Lynn Volkswagen I knew it was the right place for me.  Following our recent refurbishment, I feel 2016 will be the most successful year on record.

My family situation is that I got married in June 2015 to my wife Clare and I have a son called Ayden.  I enjoy playing golf and am also a huge Norwich City FC fan.  I am also looking to learn to solo skydive since completing a charity tandem skydive in Oct 2015.

Aftersales Manager, Neil Bushell

I started my career in the automotive industry in 2002 as a costings clerk, and from there gained a wide breadth of automotive experience through roles including Service Advisor, Service Team Leader, Workshop Controller, Workshop Manager and Aftersales Manager. I have gained a lot of experience with cars and luxury vehicles during my time within the industry.  I joined Marriott Motor Group here at Kings Lynn Volkswagen in March 2015.

On a personal level my dedication to our brand is validated by achieving my Volkswagen Certified Manager qualification which has involved many training courses to immerse myself in the Volkswagen world.  

Whenever possible I like to travel and enjoy spending time with my young family and keeping up to date with the latest football news.

Accountant, Elaine Wood

Following a varied and successful career in Banking with NatWest, based in London and the Home Counties I moved with my family to Norfolk. After an initial period of commuting to London daily I decided to find alternative employment nearer to home and signed onto the books of a Recruitment Agency.

Following on from a temporary placement at Brundle’s, a multi-franchise dealership in Tottenhill, I was taken on within the accounts department to support the new DMS system. Of the many challenges that I have undertaken in the pursuing years, this one was in particular a toughie, as I had no prior knowledge of Sales/Purchase/Vehicle ledgers at that time.

When Brundle acquired the Volkswagen franchise in King’s Lynn, a new site based in North Lynn was constructed; my application to be a part of this new team was successful and with only a few staff initially I was involved with all Accounts, Vehicle and General administration roles. Over the years since, as the franchise has grown, my role has developed to include preparing the monthly Accounts and completing Management Accounts reporting to Volkswagen.

Kings Lynn Volkswagen has seen a change of owners over the years and when its current owners, Marriott Motor Group, purchased the company they recognised the role that I undertook at the Dealership, they formalised my position as Dealer Accountant and I am proud to be a part of the Management Team here.
