The Centre Principal of Porsche Centre Wolverhampton, Simon Priest, is currently in the midst of an extensive training programme run by the University of St. Gallen, in Switzerland.
The programme, International Porsche Dealer Academy, helps to develop leadership and management skills for Centre Principals around the world. Simon was put forward for the programme by Stratstone's Franchise Director for Porsche and, as a result, he is one of only three UK-based Centre Principals on the programme.
The 18-month long programme will see Simon jetting to Switzerland and Dubai to study a comprehensive curriculum of international business management. In addition, Simon has met fellow Porsche Centre Principals and Porsche business owners for countries around the world, including China, USA and Tasmania. This experience will enable Simon to bring a wealth of experience and knowledge to Porsche Centre Wolverhampton and other Porsche dealerships to further improve the business performance and customer experience.
Stratstone is committed to supporting their talent to develop and Simon Priest is one of many team members who have benefited from quality training programmes from the Manufacturer as well as the Pendragon Training Academy.
Simon Priest, Centre Principal at Porsche Centre Wolverhampton, commented:
"I feel very privileged to be part of this Dealer Academy and I'm grateful that Stratstone put me forward for it.
"I'm delighted to be part of a high-standard learning and development programme and I really feel that every session grows my knowledge and adds value to my Porsche Centre."
