Synergy Automotive, one of the UK’s leading vehicle leasing and finance credit brokers, is accelerating its growth strategy with six new appointments in the last six months.

Founded in 2006 on the principle of delivering a great leasing experience to every customer, the business - which has achieved Gold Trusted Merchant from global independent feedback engine Feefo across 2015 and 2016 - now employs a 26-strong team.

Marking a 35% increase in staff over the last year; Synergy Automotive is ramping up the sales team with four new sales account managers to look after its growing customer base as well as strengthening its client services with a trainee data analyst and a trainee sales support co-ordinator.

The appointments are among a series of formative developments for the business which is forecasting to supply over £42m of vehicles across this financial year – a 30% plus year-on-year growth. A £100k raft of investment which is further improving SME delivery in 2016 includes new product offerings. 

Synergy Automotive MD, Paul Parkinson, commented: “Customers are the heart of everything we do and we consistently seek to attract and retain the best people who are personable, professional and combine industry knowledge with a focus on delivering the best leasing experience for every customer.

“Our new team members are instrumental in driving our goals and vision and are integral to our ongoing success and expansion.”

A champion of giving back to its local communities, Synergy Automotive is the exclusive corporate partner of The Rainbow Fund and has pledged to raise a minimum of £5k to provide vital equipment for the children’s department at Harrogate District Hospital.

The company’s fundraising campaign includes Paul Parkinson and 13 team members undertaking the gruelling Yorkshire Warrior Wild Waters race on 24th September at Ripley Castle.
