A special presentation awaited technician Barry Simpson at his workplace Jaybee Motors in Banbury this week to mark his 25th anniversary at the dealer.


Barry, aged 63, received a specially engraved iPod touch from his colleagues and management at the dealership where he has worked since 1988.


Barry left school at the age of 16 and almost straight away started his career in the motor industry. After moving to Chipping Norton, he worked at Benfields for 17 years where he worked on all makes, before moving to Renault Trucks.


He joined Jaybee in 1986, two years before the dealership became a Renault dealer. Such was his talent, he was chosen to be one of the very first technicians in the whole of the UK to be invited to become a Renault Technical Expert (RTE) – technicians with the very highest levels of knowledge and skill in the Renault network.


Joining him in the busy workshop is Terry Ridgway.  Terry has joined the dealership from another Renault business, having started his career as an apprentice technician at the age of 17 in 1990. He has worked in the motor trade since then, except for a five year break when he moved to the gas industry.


Terry has reached the highest level of technical expertise in the Renault network which is a qualification offered to the most capable technicians in Renault workshops. As well as expert-level technical work, RTEs also have excellent customer service skills as they regularly deal with customers face-to-face to explain the work that needs to be carried out on their car.
