Mazda Silverlink Team

Trevor Marshall, Sales Executive at Hodgson Mazda Silverlink

Trevor Marshall is one of the most respected members of the Hodgson group having worked for the company for over two decades. He has been at the sharp end of business expansion, working in a diversity of roles from the days the company was a one franchise dealership and filling station in Seghill, to the success that it is today.

Today, it's not just those original customers who return time and again to see Trevor, it's the next generation of motorists, the sons and daughters of his first clients from his days in Seghill.

Andrew Plant, Aftersales Manager at Hodgson Mazda/Suzuki Silverlink

Andrew, Aftersales Manager at both Mazda and Suzuki Silverlink branches, has got an incredible bag of knowledge to share with his colleagues as well as customers. He has been working in motor trade for over 37 years, starting as apprentice technician in 1979 and moving onto Technician, Service Advisor and Service Manager over a period of 19 years. He has joined Hodgson Motor Group in December 2003 and never looked back.

Andrew enjoys motor trade because it is always changing, which makes it very interesting and challenging! What Andrew likes about Hodgson Motor Group is the fact that it still remains a family run business, built on honesty, trust and integrity. You are treated as an individual and given the autonomy to make decisions for your own department.

Andrew’s favourite car brand – Mazda. ‘The brand is rising in popularity and the advancement in technology and in its products makes it a very exciting brand to work with,’ says Andrew.

Anthony Palfreyman, Service Advisor at Hodgson Mazda Silverlink

Anthony has joined Hodgson Mazda in February 2016 as Service advisor and brought his knowledge to support Hodgson Silverlink Aftersales team. He has been in the motor trade for the last 27 years as Service Advisor and enjoys daily surprises that the industry brings.

Anthony is originally from Sunderland and is a big Sunderland football fan (he says that he turns into a mad fan when he is at the match) & goes to every single home game.

He likes Hodgson because the company as well as staff members are incredibly friendly. The atmosphere here is more family-like and your work day goes by quickly.

When he is not at work, he likes to listen to a great mix of music. And if he is not in England, you will most likely find him enjoying the sunshine in Turkey – Anthony admits that he's got a passion for that country and he goes there twice a year, every year.
