Gary Pope – Managing Director
I started my working life in the Parachute Regiment straight from school. After 7 years’ I then joined Avon Fire & Rescue Service for the next 16 years, in 2003 I resigned and for the next 9 years served as a Security Consultant working in ‘hostile’ environments around the world such as Iraq and Afghanistan. This is where I honed my skills in corporate management, strategic planning, finance and application of company procedures, compliance and policy implementation.
I joined Country Cars in 2012 bringing to the table an array of skills sets, which has assisted me to uplift the company operations efficiently. I am married with two children.
Mike Hicks – Operations Director
I have been affiliated with Country Cars since 2008 and have been their ‘Trade Buyer’ for many years purchasing vehicles for the company directly from Main Dealerships. The present owner offered me the opportunity to become a Director of Country Cars in November 2018 and happily accepted.
I have an enthusiastic passion for this industry with an analytical attention to detail that helps support our company’s professional outlook. I am married with one child.
Rikki Farrell – General Manager
I’ve been working for the company since 2008 and my previous role was Sales Executive, in June 2018 I was promoted to General Manager and I am now responsible for overseeing the day to day running of the business, reporting to, and working alongside the directors, a role I grasp with great enthusiasm.
I find it a warm and friendly environment to work in and challenge myself to aspire to do better each day, no two days are the same.
When I’m not working I enjoy spending time with my wife & 3 children as well as watching football and Boxing.
