#E51 How to Build a Business in the Motor Trade but Never taking anything for Granted: Vince Pemberton
This weeks special guest is CEO of Rivervale Cars Ltd Vince Pemberton. He has been in the motor trade and Sussex business community for nearly three decades and today he shares his journey with us. Two weeks ago we released a tribute from this episode to Vince's father Alex Pemberton who sadly passed away recently.
This is a brilliant episode from someone that was told by his careers officer he would never get a job, no one would employ him and wouldn't amount to anything, but proved that through being a good person, working hard and building relationships just how wrong they were. We talk about Vince's early career and the lessons he learnt from cold calling, to his first role at Rivervale to starting Eagle Oak Vehicles ltd with his dad. Vince tells me how he has never sold anything to anyone, he simply helps people buy what they want including some well known names such as Tony Cascarino, Teddy Sheringham and Bradley Walsh to name a few. We delve into the strong culture at Rivervale that has helped the company continue to grow from strength to strength over the years despite many challenges all businesses have faced recently, but how the people in the business are what really make it what it is, and how the values of former Chairman, the late Tommy Sopwith are still above the door as you come into the building... 'Do it the right way, do it the Rivervale way'.
There are so many great takeaways from this brilliant CEO and entrepreneur, you can tell his passion for the industry and Rivervale as a company. I hope you enjoy this episode as much as I did...
Everyone has a story to tell...
