After David Thompson’s recent return to Dorchester Ford, we’re taking a moment to appreciate the extensive experience he has gained over his long career in the automotive industry.
David first started working at Dorchester Ford in May 1993. He began as a sales executive, selling new and used Ford cars in Dorchester and the surrounding areas. David was clearly good at his job, as he climbed the ranks to become the sales controller and then, ultimately, the sales manager.
And, what better way to assess someone’s ability than by their customer service? David won the national customer satisfaction index awards – 2 years running! This helped both David and Dorchester Ford to build a strong, meaningful relationship with Ford Motor Company, further strengthening the team there.
After David moved on from Dorchester Ford, he held various different positions, including senior managerial positions and, importantly, training consultancy. When you’re delivering the best customer service, it’s a good idea to share your ideas with those just starting a career in car sales.
After adding to his wealth of experience for a number of years, David returned to the blue oval, joining Foray Motor Group in September 2018. David was invited back by Simon Moulton (MD), who he previously worked for, for over 10 years!
We’re also taking a moment to welcome Simon Edwards back, too. Where David will be sharing his expertise between Dorchester and Shaftesbury (Hine Motors), Simon is exclusively based at Dorchester Ford – looking after you from Monday to Saturday.
It isn’t just the fantastic range of used cars available. Everything has been thought about – from customer parking to coffee; from paint to showroom window tinting. We also have a dedicated indoor viewing area, so you can view a prospective car come rain or shine. Simon has even taken the time to add QR codes to all the cars there so, if you drop by out of hours, you can scan a code on one of the cars in the forecourt to see the full information.
Of course, we offer all your vehicle maintenance services out of Dorchester Ford too, and have recently merged our team from Southern Motor Services (previously located in Crossways) into our team there. You’re in safe hands.
If you’re shopping for a high quality, approved used car in Dorchester, make sure you come and speak to Simon. He’s got you covered! With 20-30 hand-picked cars in stock and access to over 400 cars in group stock, we’ve got a car for every driver. Plus, all of our used cars are available with Warranty for life, as well as a wide range of other benefits offered with Foray Approved.
We can’t wait to show you what we have to offer!
