Hey! I’m Samantha Platt,

I started my Motor Trade career as a Service Advisor with ZERO knowledge of cars but I did have a big smiley face and positive can-do attitude and as it turns out, that’s all I needed.

Today, I am proud to be the Aftersales Director for Acorn Motor Group, finalists for Autotrader’s ‘People and Culture award’ and excited to announce that we have three openings for Aftersales Apprenticeships working with innovative, dynamic and successful brands.
