Simon Miskin

SPORTIF CITROËN, AYLESBURY, COMES UNDER NEW OWNERSHIP

Simon Miskin, who has been successfully running Sportif Citroën as Dealer Principal for the last 7 years, has just completed his life-long ambition by becoming Managing Director of the business. Along with his close friend James Wilmoth, they have acquired the business from John Miskin and John Boardman, who have retired after 19 years.

Simon, speaking about his new acquisition, said: “My business ethos both in the past and going forward, has always been to surround myself with generally like-minded, experienced people. It has additionally always been vital to empower them to make their own decisions, even if sometimes that means them learning from the occasional mistake along the way.

I am confident in the team I have around me in both Sales and After-Sales, and will not be making any changes to the dynamics. Thankful for such wonderful managers and staff, I know Sportif will continue to grow and excel in providing outstanding customer service, and with the exciting new range of Citroen products available, and those soon due for release, the dealership is sure to continue its year on year success.”
