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.

Dislikes - Not going fast enough.
First and foremost Tim is a true petrolhead with a passion for anything with an engine. He has over 35 years of automotive engineering experience.
Tim manages the day to day running of the garage and is always available to answer customer's questions and address their concerns. Tim is extremely customer focused, often going well beyond expectations to ensure our customers are happy. He expects the same commitment from his staff.
When time allows Tim loves to compete in motorsport. He has prepared and campaigned many cars including BMW M3, Porsche 968, Porsche 996 and our Porsche 911 GT3 Cup car.

Colin joined us from our local Porsche dealership, where he rose to the giddy heights of workshop manager.
With over 25 years of experience at our local Porsche centre, he has benefited from their constant training program and is qualified to maintain all Porsche cars, including the very latest models.
We've known Colin for many years and are delighted that he's chosen to join the Dorset Sports Cars family. His enthusiasm and commitment to outstanding customer service means you can be confident that your car is in safe hands.
Colin's enviable level of expertise means that any fault diagnosis and repair will be carried out quickly and efficiently.
Likes - Anything Porsche, Rallying (Crew, not driving!).

Clint has over 20 years of experience across many 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 will beat him!
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 has only just joined the team - when she has a minute I'm sure she'll fill me in on her background.
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. Once he's got a moment I'll get a photo and fill you in on his interests.
Trouble is - he's always busy.
Likes - Getting things done.
Dislikes - Traffic.
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.
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!
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
Another 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. A woman of mystery! (Dog grooming as it turns out - each to their own!).
Likes - Only the crumbliest flakiest chocolate.
Dislikes - A slow computer. Don't we all!
