Meet the Team
Our small but dedicated team have great industry experience which enables us to supply the best quality pre-owned cars with the best service histories and specifications. We specialise in Audi, BMW, Jaguar, Land Rover and Mercedes-Benz sourcing our stock from some of the largest UK leasing companies, as well as franchised dealers. We always have a good selection of cars for sale including selected part exchange cars. 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 working from home and since those humble beginnings the business now sells over 35 cars per month and has an annual turnover in excess of £7m. We are seeing more and more repeat customers so we know we are doing something right.
Phil has been in the motor industry for over 30 years, spending the last 16 years as a ‘Group Buyer’ for a large Audi dealer group before setting up Stansted Prestige with Ian. Phil brings the necessary knowledge and expertise to run our growing business. Ian’s background is accounting, and he has ensured steady year-on-year growth of our business. We have plans to continue the business growth, keeping our eyes focused on customer satisfaction.
The dog in the photo is Beatrice an English Bullmastiff who sadly passed away in October. She was known to our regular customers as the sleeping guard dog and followed us both wherever we went. We're still and always will be a dog friendly business and love meeting new four legged customers, and we have the benefit of a fantastic walk in Parsonage Wood opposite. We always have a water bowl in the corner, so feel free to bring your four legged friend to meet our team.
