Careers: How are you settling in?

OLIVIA Powell, marketing manager, Pendragon Contracts

How are you finding your new role?

Fantastic. There are so many projects on the go, such as a risk product with the AA, an industry corporate presentation and new, interactive website.

What is your career history?

I have had a varied working life so far – I have worked in marketing in the hotel trade, in agencies and worked a couple of ski seasons.

What do you enjoy about working in the motor industry?

There is always a new challenge and also I am a bit of a tomboy – I love cars.

What do you least enjoy?

Compliance with regulations. But keeping an open channel of communication with suppliers and customers really does help alleviate any issues we might face.

Do you have a career path you are following?

Yes, and I feel there is so much more I can achieve being part of a growing company like Pendragon.

What’s your dream holiday destination?

The Caribbean in the summer for the scuba diving, and the French Alps in the winter for the skiing.
