Our Staff Are Our Most Important Asset
Read about the dedicated team behind Dorset Sports Cars
Paul has spent over 30 years in business management and runs a tight ship. He insists on a very high standard of work from the rest of the team at Dorset Sports Cars.
Paul is confident of keeping the company on the right track and consolidating our position as a well respected and highly skilled independent sports car specialist, and from March 2014 a Subaru franchised dealership.
Paul is a racer at heart, with a passion for Porsche. When he has some spare time, you'll probably find him doing battle on a racetrack somewhere.

Clint has over 20 years of experience across various areas of the motor industry, working with many prestigious brands such as Aston Martin, Bentley and Land Rover.
A self proclaimed car nerd, his passion shines through when assisting customers. Nothing is too much trouble, he always goes the extra mile.
Clint describes himself as a youthful 45 year old, which demonstrates that he has a fine sense of humour.
Any spare time is taken up with football, motorsport, dogs, or avoiding jobs around the house.
Likes - Chippy Friday.
Dislikes - When things don't work like they should.
Graham has decades of experience with dealerships around the country, most recently with our local Porsche centre. He manages our parts department and generally looks after all parts enquiries. No challenge too big or part too small - he'll find what you're looking for!
We are not entirely sure what Graham does in his spare time, but we believe his family keeps him on his toes.
A bit of a man of mystery!
Likes - Finding stuff.
Dislikes - People moving things without permission.
Lisa is the newest member of the office team, if you phone the dealership or bring your car in for service, it's very likely that she'll be your first point of contact.
Lisa's twins keep her busy, Mum's taxi service is her speciality. When she does get a minute to herself she likes to keep fit, usually running.
Likes - MotoGP, Gin.
Dislikes - Skydiving.
As a locally trained technician, Andy has a wealth of experience gained from working within the main dealer network in Dorset for over 30 years. After completing his apprenticeship with Westover's, he joined Dorset Sports Cars to become an all round specialist in Jaguar servicing. Andy is also a qualified MOT tester.
Andy is a family man and one of his favourite pastimes is touring around the country with his recent motorhome upgrade.
Likes - Getting out and about.
Dislikes - People getting in his way.
Lee is a first class technician and MOT tester with many years of main dealer experience.
Lee has very little spare time, his family keep him busy. He's recently completed a VW Camper conversion and he's looking forward to taking that around Europe. A brave soul, he rides a motorbike to work and recently he's invested in a scooter for a little extra comfort on the daily commute.
Likes - Getting things done.
Dislikes - Traffic.
Alex is nearing the end of his apprenticeship. He has a passion for most things with 4 wheels so becoming a vehicle technician was an obvious vocational choice.
In his spare time he plays the guitar, enjoys playing football, and is an avid sim racer. He also follows F1 religiously, so maybe one day he'll move out of the virtual world and take to the track for real.
Likes - Getting involved.
Dislikes - He'll let me know.
With over 30 years experience, many with Volvo and more recently Porsche main dealers, Alex has an incredible eye for detail and ensures our cars are prepared to the highest levels possible.
Alex is trained to the premier standard in the application of SupaGaurd, Autoglym Lifeshine and Liquid Armour protection packages.
Outside of work, Alex enjoys the outdoor life and likes nothing more than a BBQ with his family.
Likes - Polishing stuff.
Dislikes - People touching his equipment!
Eddie's experience with a pressure washer and mop knows no bounds! He generally keeps things spick and span and assists Alex in preparing our sales cars.
Having worked far and wide, in all manner of industries (including the motor trade), his life experience is a thing to behold! Having decided to settle locally, he now finds himself as a valued member of our valeting team. A real car nut, he genuinely loves his job.
Outside of work, Eddie enjoys his campervan and taking things easy.
Likes - A good story.
Dislikes - We're not sure there's anything Eddie doesn't like.
Driver / Valeter
Doug has a great deal of experience in the motor trade. Retirement was too dull so he chose to join our team as a driver / valeter. If you have your car collected Doug will probably be the one who delivers it back to you.
I've yet to ask Doug what he does in his spare time, trying to catch him can be tricky.
Likes - A long drive

Sarah manages our accounts and while you may be unlikely to see her when you visit, she is an extremely valuable member of the team.
Sarah's spare(!) time is mostly taken up with family life, but the thrill of a sports car hasn't passed her by, and she appears to have developed a passion for collecting model cars.
Likes - A tidy desk.
Dislikes - When things don't add up!
Receptionist & Admin
A member of the admin team that deputises for Lisa when she is unavailable.
We can't help wondering what she actually gets up to in her spare time. (Dog grooming as it turns out - each to their own!).
Likes - Only the crumbliest flakiest chocolate.
Dislikes - A slow computer. Don't we all?
Aleena is another valued member of the Admin team, keeping the dealership running smoothly.
Limbo skating and mountain unicycling are two sports she's very keen to get into as she recently had to give up powerbocking (it was playing havoc with her knees). If Red Bull would like to sponsor her, please make contact via the garage, we'd like to broker the deal.
