Damian

Damian

Sales Manager / Co-Founder

From his first beetle refurb to his first splitty Damian has always had a keen interest in everything
VW. He loves his job and can talk Transporter all day. Making sure that the customer gets exactly
what they need, not just what they think they want is always in the forefront of his mind. Sourcing
the right van for conversion be that new or used is another one of his skills. The best part for Damian
is the hand over and seeing the happy customers driving off in their vans.
