With an automotive background, Peter worked in the insurance accident repair sector for over 10 years, working closely with BMW to increase industry standards throughout the UK. His passion to keep things local is clearly working – by engaging the community in his business concept of creating employment locally.
Mark KnowlesHead of Operations
Mark Knowles was recently promoted to the role of Head of Operations within Your Local Car. He has a busy schedule for the foreseeable future, including checking and updating all the processes that are in place. This ensures that our high standards continue and that the company is in compliance with ever-changing legislation.
Alan WhiteCo Founder
Since the beginning, Alan has always been the customer facing person of the business and remains hugely popular with our clients. With Alan’s never ending repertoire of jokes and consistent customer service, there is no doubt that the company would not be where it is today without him. Whilst secretly wanting to hang up his car keys, he still remains fully involved in the day to day running of the business with duties which include vehicle maintenance, driver training and ensuring new drivers are ready for the knowledge test.
Janet WhiteCo Founder
Janet has been the unseen face of the business since it was founded in 1996. Having dealt with every incoming call, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year for 15 years, it was time to take some well earned ‘ME TIME”. Nevertheless, this does not mean that Janet has retired completely. She now works on a part-time basis which allows her to pass on her 20 years of expert knowledge to all of the Your Local Car team.
