James takes on new role at Greenhous Nissan
Greenhous Nissan on Featherbed Lane, Shrewsbury are delighted to welcome James Biggs as the new Sales Manager for the busy dealership. James is enjoying his new challenge saying: “I wanted to move to Shrewsbury and join of a dealership that is part of the community. I live in Weston-Under-Redcastle and I know Shrewsbury very well. I attended school in Market Drayton where my father ran a Renault garage. That is where I got into the motor trade originally.”

The career path for James started with a spell in accounts working for his father before being given the experience of sales and this has been his chosen path ever since. James spent 4 years in his father’s business before moving on to work in Crewe, initially for a Renault dealership, and then as sales manager for Skoda in 1997.  Along the way he studied for qualifications in business and finance, including a degree in Business Studies.

Having made a good impression in Crewe, James transferred to the sales manager post at Skoda in Newcastle-under-Lyme, where he was for 5 years before moving to Greenhous.  James explains that travelling less was one factor leading to his move to Shrewsbury: “My son is at school in Shrewsbury so I am travelling in the same direction now rather than dropping him off and heading towards Stoke.”

James continued: “I am looking forward to getting know the staff and customers and being part of the local community as I know Greenhous are a community based business.”  On a personal level James finds relaxation in the sport of sailing.  He has a boat moored at Lake Bala where he is often to be seen on those precious days off!
