Introducing Vanessa Smith, Accounts Team Leader

By Pye Motors

Meet Vanessa, who has worked at Pye for 35 years within the Accounts department.

When did you join the Pye family?
I joined Pye at 17 years old. My role was accounts office junior and was tasked with making the brews and helping out other members of the team with their daily duties. This really helped me gain a wider knowledge of all roles within the department which enabled me to progress to my current role of Team Leader.

Can you describe your typical day?
Most mornings start at the Petrol Station checking in with the team. I’m part of a small team who manage our daily cash flow, so one aspect of my role is reviewing the bank accounts and allocating each day’s payment and receipts across the 4 branches.

Like the show room, Accounts is a busy department. I’m lucky as I have a really good team around me, completing all the daily tasks and dealing with any queries which might come our way.

What do you most enjoy about your job?
I love being part of a close knit team and feel like part of the family. I feel very privileged that Pye Motors supported me whilst I completed my AAT [Association of Accounting Technicians] up to Level 4.

What are you most excited by within the business - both now and in the future?
It is very exciting to see all the new Ford models being released and the progression of the all-electric vehicles for the future.

Within your role, what makes you most proud?
My team. I am proud of the Accounts Team and how they have coped during a difficult year and how we have all pulled together and got on with it.

What vehicle do you currently drive?
Split between my Ford Puma ST-Line x and my Triumph Street Triple 675

What’s in your vehicle boot?
Muddy boots! I’d love to say my dog blanket, her toys and chews as I’m always out walking with my Cockapoo, Coco but she insists on sitting with me in the front seat. She is also not a fan of the Triumph!

What’s your dream vehicle to drive?
Ferrari! Well, anything small and sporty really.
