Patrick joined Pye Motors in 1993 after brief stints at Rover in Lancaster and Ford, pre-Pye in Barrow. He spent 20 years at our Morecambe branch before moving to our Kendal branch last year. Patrick knows everything there is to know about cars and he's amazing at being able to advise you on the best car to suit your needs. Some of Patrick's clients have been turning to him for car advise for over 20 years! We couldn't be happier that Patrick is celebrating over 21 years at Pye Motors, and hope he will continue the fantastic work for many years to come.
Last week we had a little chat with Patrick about 'Why Pye?'
Why did you decide to get into cars?
I have always had a keen interest in cars and I love to meet new people. I started off selling cars with Rover in Lancaster before being an offered an interview with Pye in 1993. After my interview with David Swallow, Jim Pye came to meet me as well, he takes a really keen interest in his employees and this is what stood out for me. I was really pleased to be offered the job and be working for a family business.
What's the best thing about what you do?
It's a really varied job, I'm always meeting new people and I really enjoy finding them the right car that suits their lifestyle. Sometimes people aren't really sure about what car would be best for them and they need advise. I really get to understand my customers which is why some of my customers have been coming back to me for 20 years. Orginally I worked at the Morecambe branch of Pye and I find my customers from there will travel to Kendal to buy their car from me. This is a great feeling.
What do you like best about Pye?
I work with a really nice team and I enjoy coming to work because although Pye is spread across three branches there is a real family feel about the company. I feel like a valued employee and I hope to spend many more years at Pye.
