Sammy Lees - Director

Sammy was educated at Appleby primary and grammar schools but was bitten by the mechanics bug at a young age. While still at school he began working as a teenager for a local haulage firm at weekends and during school holidays.On leaving school at the tender age of 16, he gained an apprenticeship at David Hayton's in Penrith where he served his time as a mechanic and worked his way up to being a consultant technician for Citroen. He continued to work for David Hayton for 11 years. Sammy went on to join an independent dealership and established and managed its service department until 2014 when he helped set up a second branch at Carlisle. Sammy is responsible for sales, the day to day running of the on site service centre & when needed puts his boiler suit on and mechanics! Sammy hopes the business will become known for its reputable, trustworthy and transparent service. Away from business Sammy is a keen cyclist and has a passion for retro cars and is the proud owner of a original Peugeot 106 Rallye.
