Meet the Team
Our small but dedicated team have great experience within the motor industry, which enables us to supply the very best quality, pre-owned cars with the best service histories and specifications. We specialise in Audi and source our stock from some of the largest UK leasing companies, as well as franchised dealers. We also have a selection of other makes including BMW, Jaguar, Land Rover, Mercedes-Benz and Volkswagen. We also sell selected part exchange cars, and you will find these great cars for sale on our website — keep an eye out! Every car we sell is HPI clear and comes with its own HPI certificate and service history.
Phil & Ian - Owners
Stansted Prestige was set up in January 2008. Originally a small business working from home, as we'd both decided we wanted to work for ourselves. We had belief in our abilities and have taken the business from humble beginnings to a business that now sells over 30 cars per month turning over a staggering £5m per year. With repeat sales happening each year, from ‘local' and 'national' customers, we know we are doing something right.
Background: Phil has been in the motor industry since the age of 21, and before setting up Stansted Prestige, spent 16 years as a ‘Group Buyer’ for a large Audi dealer group. Phil brings the knowledge and expertise that is necessary to run our growing prestige car business. Ian’s background is in accounting and he holds a grip on the company finances that has ensured year-on-year growth. We both have plans to continue this growth, but will always have our eyes focused on customer satisfaction.
Beatrice: Our English Bullmastiff who seems to follow us wherever we go and is known as the sleeping guard dog! Bea is very friendly, can be found in the office on a regular basis and is always eager to meet customers — especially those that bring her treats! We're a dog friendly business, have fantastic walks in the woods opposite, a fresh bowl of water in the corner, so bring your four legged friend to say hello to us and meet Beatrice.
