Chris Payne has been appointed as sales manager of the specialist cars division of AMT Group which provides rental, contract hire and vehicle sales solutions.
Payne has more than 13 years’ experience working in various roles within the prestige car sector, most recently as used car transaction/business manager for BMW Halliwell Jones. Prior to that, he spent three years in sales with Audi Cheshire Oaks and he has also worked for Lexus Stockport (RRG Group) and for Sytner Kings Chrysler.
Based at the group’s Leeds headquarters, Payne will lead sales for AMT’s specialist cars division which was set up 18 months ago. His appointment coincides with the launch of a new website for specialist cars as the business continues to grow.
Neil McGawley, managing director of AMT Group, said: “With a fleet of more than 1,500 prestige and specialist vehicles which we are constantly upgrading, we inevitably have a significant number of vehicles which we need to remarket. Our specialist cars division is already gaining momentum and the appointment of an experienced sales professional like Chris, together with the launch of a brand new, user friendly website, will build on this success, driving further growth.”
