A MALTON car sales manager has marked his 25th anniversary working for a family-run motoring company.

Mike Hall joined Ray Chapman Motors in 1994, when he sold his first car - a Volvo 340 - to a young couple from Pickering.

The team has grown with Mike, celebrating several milestones during his time as sales manager, including being crowned Volvo’s Dealer of the Year in 2006.

Mike said: “I still cannot believe it’s been 25 years; it has absolutely flown by.

“I think this anniversary is truly a testament to the amazing team, and lovely customers I get to meet every day in my job.”

When Mike is not working, he spends time walking his dog Bella around Castle Howard and Cayton Bay with his wife and son.

Mike added: “We have celebrated some extraordinary successes over the years, and it has been fantastic to see a small, family-run business receiving such prestigious national recognition, while maintaining its family credentials.

“Fingers crossed for the next 25 years.”
