Welcoming Susan and Alex to the team

If you ring our switchboard or pay our showroom a visit, it’s most likely that you’ll be greeted by one of our two new receptionists.

Susan Sykes from Chapeltown, Sheffield, and Alex Stovin, from Doncaster, are the latest additions to the ever growing team here at John Holland.

Both new recruits will be the first port of call at the front desk of our Meadowhall Road showroom, covering a busy switchboard, taking enquiries and meeting and greeting customers.

Susan previously worked in an admin and reception role in the Air Conditioning industry in New Zealand, after spending a number of years in the car finance industry as a new business administrator for Sheffield business Close Motor Finance Ltd, also based in Sheffield.

Susan said: “I’m very excited to be joining the John Holland team and getting back into the car industry, which I always enjoyed.

“I’ll be looking at things from a different aspect of the business as I’ll now, along with Alex, be the first port of call, working on the reception desk.”

Alex, meanwhile, joins straight from University, where she studied law.

Alex has worked in various customer services roles alongside her studies, and during a year abroad travelling in Australia.

Alex said: “I’ve always had a passion for the car industry and look forward to working at John Holland.

“I’ll be looking to increasing my business awareness and working alongside a dedicated and valued team to grow the company.”

Our managing director, Mark Holland, said: “We’re extremely pleased to have Alex and Susan on board.

“They join an already fantastic team here at John Holland and the creation of a receptionist team alongside our admin and accounts team is great news for the business.”
