Meet The Team
The Guys and Gals (and Daisy) of Oak Road
Let's get Social!
Want to know who's who at Oak Road?
We asked the team for a little bit about themselves, and here's what we got!
Sarah - AKA Boss Lady
Yep, that’s right – Oak Road Motor Factors is owned and run by a GIRL! No ordinary girl though; Sarah is mum to Jakub and fur-mum to Daisy (more about her next), goes to the gym, does the odd 10k and colour run, loves to travel and enjoys a concert or two. She’s hands on with all three locations but you’ll mostly find her at the Middlesbrough shop.
Daisy Dog - AKA Mascot and Treat Chomper
Oh, and star of the radio adverts. Thankfully she doesn’t know how famous she is and simply does her job as company mascot and all round lovable pup who just wants a belly rub and a biscuit when you come in. In fact, she’ll probably howl at your for them! You can also take selfies with Daisy and pop them on our social sites. Just ask when you pop in.
Adi is our Sales Rep and you’ll find him between all the branches but mostly he’s out and about speaking to old and new customers making sure they’re happy with us! With over 35 years in the motor trade from fleet and MOT to restoration work, Adi clearly knows his stuff and loves cars!
He also loves the outdoors, walking in the Lakes trying to rack up all the Wainwrights (both walks and beers) with his wife and his looney Sprocker. He’s also an air-cooled VW owner, loves music and is a bit of a star wars fan. There, now you know him pretty well!
Lee started when we opened the Middlesbrough branch in February 2017. He was a valet at Audi Teesside so he’s totally into detail. He’s been a chef too, so you might get a waft of the leftovers he brings in (which we don’t get to eat – rude!). He fixes his own automotive issues (and a few of the team’s) so you know he has lots of knowledge to help you out with yours.
Jeff has an automotive sales background (we don’t like to say car salesman) and is a talker. You’ll find him on the front desk greeting you with a smile. His favourite team is is Tottenham Hotspur (not even a local team – shocking) and his dream car is a red Ferrari with cream interior and red stitching (judge if you must).
Gav’s our newest member and can be found lurking in the warehouse preparing all of the deliveries.
He’s been in the automotive industry for over 10 years so he knows his stuff.
He a keen football player and supports Chelsea, and he loves the outdoors.
Kaye joined the Middlesbrough branch a few years ago as a driver and stock picker. When she’s settled in she’ll be taking over the online commerce arm which sells Liqui Moly products from our website.
Kaye has two dogs and occasionally enjoys a small tipple with The Boss.
Ben joined us just before the pandemic so it’s been a baptism of fire! He has worked in the automotive parts industry for 8 years and has nicely settled into the team.
In his spare time he is currently changing a lot of yukky nappies for his new born or you can find him at the gym or watching the footie.
Rick recently joined the Middlesbrough team – watch this space to get to know him better!
Clair does EVERYTHING. She is Sarah’s right hand woman and keeps the Redcar lads in check. Rufus the hound (he’s a Shar Pei) can often be found sat on the window sill in the upstairs office – look for him and give him a wave and a woof! She’s partial to a cool beer on a hot day (or a cold day) and has recently become engaged to Craig (we feel a party coming on). They can be found strolling the country lanes with Rufus at weekends.
Chris is our longest standing employee having worked for Oak Road for over 40 years (did you lot even know the company had been around that long?!). Of course he loves cars (otherwise he’s clearly in the wrong job!) and his other hobbies include travel and spending time with his family.
Next in line for the longest employee trophy is Shaun who has racked up 35 years.
He loves cars – old and new. That is all.
Mick has been with us for around 16 years and he has over 35 year’s experience in the auto parts game so you know he knows his stuff.
He like cars (just as well!), spending time with his family and going out for good meals.
Marty has been at Redcar for a few years now and has a willingness to learn everything he can about the motor industry. If he doesn’t know he’ll find out, and keep on growing his knowledge. He loves a bit of football and NFL, spending time with his two daughters and listening to a little bit of Foo Fighters
Mark has over 35 years experience in the motor trade and has spent more than 20 of those years working for Oak Road Motor Factors. Nice one Mark!
