Meet The Team

Head of Business, David Nichols

I started my career in the automotive industry in 1981 as a parts assistant, and from there gained a wide breadth of automotive experience through roles including Parts Manager, Aftersales Manager, General Sales Manager, Brand Manager and Brand Director. I spent 22 years with Volvo, and then joined Volkswagen in 2003. I have experience of cars, luxury vehicles and more recently commercial vehicles. I joined Marriott Motor Group in 2009 as a Head of Business with responsibility for the operation and management of two Volkswagen Commercial Vehicle Van Centres.

Awarded the Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles Annual 'Most Valued Van Centre' Gold Award, this signifies the top ranking position for a Van Centre in the UK in terms of performance and customer satisfaction

On a personal level my dedication to our brand is validated by my standing as Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles Area 3 BDG Chairman (2009-2013), Director of the Volkswagen Audi Retailer Association (VARA); Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles National BDG Chairman, (2013 to present); Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles representative on the Volkswagen Audi European Dealer Council, representing the UK Van Centres (2013 to present); Accredited as both a Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles Head of Business and a Volkswagen Brand Manager

My two Volkswagen Van Centres have sponsored various local teams in the world of football, netball and most recently the Bury St Edmunds under 16’s ladies rugby team.

Whenever possible I like to travel and enjoy gardening, cycling, DIY. The motoring aspect that falls into my leisure time is an enjoyment of Classic Land Rovers.

Both of the Marriott Motor Group Van Centres are customer focused with a "putting the customer first" approach. Our modern facilities welcome individual customers and families alike. We have a team of Volkswagen trained staff who are dedicated to our commercial vehicle centres, many of which have been part of our team for over ten years and some exceeding 35 years!

Our showrooms display the latest models of Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles, which is supported by a comprehensive demonstration fleet. In addition to our fully equipped service and maintenance facilities we also have a mix of curtesy vehicles available to ensure you can always carry on your "business as usual" In addition to this we can also have a selection of dedicated Volkswagen Commercial vehicle available for rent for as long as you need.

Sales Manager, Shaun Barlow

My Career in the Motor Industry has been a long road of discovery, and spans 12 years. I have been very fortunate to work within the Volkswagen Group of Brands, starting in Skoda, Volkswagen Passenger Cars and finally with Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles. Within my time in the industry I have had a number of roles ranging from Valeting to Management and enjoyed every one of them. My personal achievements, whilst there are many; tend to be more in line with roles and responsibility with my recent promotion to the position of Sales Manager at Volkswagen Commercial being the latest key achievement.

It may not surprise many that my interests mainly involve sports that have an engine, Motocross and Hard Enduro are a particular favourite and at the weekend I tend to ride the local trails surrounding my town, allowing me the opportunity to recharge my batteries.

The Marriott Motor Group adopts a family attitude within its businesses, where our customers are the life blood and we pride ourselves on delivering the highest possible customer service levels. Our commercial centres have been recognised as centres of excellence, so if you’re looking to replace your van, or starting a new business why not pop in to one of our Van centres today and meet our team.

Sales Executive, Jack Kendrick

I joined Marriott Motor Group – Wolsey Van Centre in December 2016 to work for the first time with Volkswagen Commercial.

Prior to this I began in the trade in June 2013 after a career change from being a football coach for Ipswich Town Football Club. My aim at Wolsey Van Centre is to provide all customers with an extremely high customer service ensuring every customer is completely satisfied.

In my spare time I like to fish with my father and when I am not doing that I am playing football with the boys. I have keen interests in both boxing and darts. However sports aside time with my family is the most valued.

Service Advisor, Henry Cutts

I joined The Marriott Motor Group in September 2015 as part of the Volkswagen Commercial vehicles team. I was attracted to the company due to its strong family ethic where always putting the customer first is the main rule of law. I have previously worked in customer service in the leisure industry and always had a passion to become involved in the motor trade from my involvement in the Ascar racing series at Rockingham, and from racing myself in karting. My hobbies include following formula 1 and the British touring cars, spending time with my family and the cinema.
