Our Centre Principal at Vantage Toyota Scarborough started out in the automotive industry over 26 years ago, joining Vantage with 15 of those years under his belt in 2005. Since joining Vantage, Peter has worked in at all of our Yorkshire based Toyota centres including York, the original Bridlington site which has since moved to it's current location in Scarborough, Knaresborough and has recently moved back to Scarborough.
Peter has been with Vantage since the days of being a 3 site, single-franchise company within the Yorkshire region, and has watched the company grow into a multi-franchise business with over 20 locations. Peter says despite this massive growth he still feels like he is working for a family business and has many friends within the company.
Outside of work Peter likes to get together with his friends and family, and in the summer can often be found at different race courses throughout the country.

Toyota is a relatively new brand for John but he loves working for them because they have fantastic technology and are leaders in the field who are always looking to improve.
The Toyota RAV4 is John's favourite vehicle because it's a really lovely vehicle to drive with lots of space.
