Careers: how are you settling in?

Rupert Lichfield, corporate sales manager, Whitehouse Chrysler Group.

  • Sum up your first few months in three words?
    An exciting challenge.

  • What have been your main responsibilities over the past few months?
    Building up a database of local business users and contacting companies we already deal with to let them know there is now a new point of contact.

  • What has been the highlight?
    It’s still early days but I’m currently working with some clients which could, potentially, lead to some very worthwhile business propositions.

  • Have you faced any challenges?
    The biggest task for now is getting the message across about all the new models arriving this year.

  • What’s your typical day?
    A typical day is spent mainly on the phone trying to put deals together. However, when our database is fully functional I will be spending a lot more time out and about visiting clients.

  • How do you relax at the end of the day?
    A nice drive home through the Kent countryside and a glass of wine with dinner with my wife.
