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 other cars for sale including selected part exchange cars, and you will find all of these cars for sale on our website. 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 £6m. 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, and spent 16 years employed as a ‘Group Buyer’ for a large Audi dealer group before setting up Stansted Prestige with Ian. Phil brings the knowledge and expertise that is necessary to run our growing car business. Ian’s background is in accounting and has ensured steady year-on-year growth of our business. We have plans to continue the growth of the business, keeping our eyes focused on customer satisfaction.
Beatrice is the dog in the photo who was our English Bullmastiff and followed us wherever we went, known to our regular customers as the sleeping guard dog. However, in October 2018 Bea passed away but we're still and always will be a dog friendly business and love meeting new four legged customers - we also have the benefit of a fantastic walk in Parsonage Wood opposite. We've always have a water bowl in the corner, so feel free to bring your four legged friend to meet our team.
Ross manages the business on a day-to-day basis to ensure we acheive our customer satisfaction objectives. Occasionally, Ross assists with sales covering holidays or during busy periods.
Ross joined the team 8 years ago as a forecourt assistant, and he has progressed within the company to his current position. We have a belief that we should always 'promote from within’ and this has allowed Ross to now share in the business success.
Joe buys all of our stock and also manages the sales on a day-to-day basis reporting to Ross and ensures we acheive both our sales as well as customer satisfaction objectives. Occasionally, Joe also assists with sales for holiday cover.
Joe recently re-joined the team in January 2019 after a period of absence working for Vauxhall in High Wycombe and for the Arnold Clark Group in Manchester. Previously, Joe worked at Stansted Prestige in sales and also worked alongside Phil at the Essex Audi Group.
