Volkswagen business development managers offer helping hand to business owners

Business owners looking for more help on all aspects of running a fleet can access advice from Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles.

Volkswagen has introduced a professional Business Development Manager in each of its 72 Van Centre.

As part of its ‘Working With You’ commitment, the manufacturer has introduced a professional Business Development Manager (BDM) in each of its 72 Van Centres to provide help and advice available on all aspects, from acquisition through life to defleet.

The BDMs not only help to process any sale on behalf of the customer, but also advise on which vehicle is right for their business needs, as well as deliver help on choosing the most cost effective finance package and aftersales support.

And over the last 12 months Volkswagen has made a number of significant changes to the way the BDMs operate, as well as introducing new technology to help streamline the processes.

Andrea Rigby Carnell, Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles’ business development manager for Breeze Motor Group in Southampton, explained: “Since joining Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles in 2015, the business has made significant changes in the way in which the BDMs operate and the technology we have available. Our aim is to help make the sales process as easy as possible for our clients.

“Working hand-in-hand with customers we guide them through the sale process and undertake all of the leg work so that they don’t have to. We make sure that the exact fleet needs of each customer are met and ensure that they not only purchase the right vehicles, but also that they are doing it in the most cost effective way. By regularly visiting the customer, we eliminate the need for them to take time away from work to visit a Van Centre, which allows them to concentrate on running their business. Our step-by-step support also provides assistance on choosing the right finance and delivering assistance regarding specialist conversion requirement as well.”
