“My name is Melissa and I am the Local business Development Manager here at Bexley Audi.

I joined Bexley Audi back in 2009.  This was my first job in the motor industry having previously pursued a career in Law and I can honestly say I have never looked back. I love all aspects of my job and enjoy meeting new people. I am also very passionate about the brand and the products we have to offer.

As an Audi UK accredited Business Development Manager I am responsible for building relationships with local businesses of all sizes and helping them find the best solutions for their company vehicles. 

Whether it is a fleet of 20 cars or just 1 car, I will always listen to my customers’ needs and requirements and make every effort to ensure I always go the extra mile to provide the best service.

Out of work I love going out with friends, shopping (too much!), going to the beach, holidaying, attending the gym and sampling fine wines! “

Steve Ashby - Beckenham Audi

Tel: 0208 658 0191


“Hi, my name’s Steve and I have worked in the motor trade since 1990 with brands such as Ford, Renault, Volvo, and Mercedes-Benz and of course Audi. In my past I have also worked with Leasing Brokers so feel I have a good all round understanding of what local business customers need and how I can meet their expectations too.

I have always worked in the fleet and corporate market and I have been with Marshall Motor Group for just under 7 years. 

I am married with 3 children who are 21, 19 and 14 and I have lived in Brighton since forever. I have been a proud Brighton & Hove Albion supporter for the last 45 years and dread to think how much money I have spent supporting the team! Out of work I enjoy cycling in Brighton and the South Downs, playing squash, swimming and spending quality time with my children and just enjoying family life.”

“Hi. My name’s Rob and I am the Local Business Development Manager at Oxford. I live locally in Oxford and have spent 27 years in the motor trade. Prior to that I had a career in the insurance sector.
