Paul BaileyThis is Paul Bailey, the latest member of our excellent Sales Staff at Jaguar Land Rover Seattle. In this article we would like to introduce you to Paul, inside and outside of the showroom.

So who is Paul Bailey?

Born and raised in Loughborough, England (10 miles from Sherwood Forest) Paul came to the US 3 years ago. Prior to stepping over the pond, Paul sold cars in England for GM and Vauxhall. When he arrived Paul worked at Buick GMC Kirkland for 6 months as a floor manager, before transitioning to Jaguar and Land Rover sales at our Bellevue store. Being a Brit and having a longtime love for the brands, selling these extraordinary and unparalleled British vehicles seemed a logical step for Paul to take. It makes it much easier to help potential buyers and clients when you have the type of genuine passion Paul has for the Jaguar and Land Rover marks – and when Paul was asked what his favorite of the brands’ vehicles were, there were a few; both old and new. Out of the Jaguars Paul’s favorite is the 1965 E-TYPE in British Racing Green. However, out of the new models he says he is “in love with the 2016 V-6 S Coupe”. When it comes to the Land Rovers however, Paul’s choice is the old Discovery (of which he incidentally owns 2); and he is also “a huge fan” of the new Range Rover Sport SVR, in blue.

Paul has great enthusiasm and loves his job and says, “… I enjoy working for such iconic brands, which have gone from strength to strength in their drive and in their styling, but still retain a flare of flamboyance that reminds us of their established history…”. However, aside from the cars he feels a rewarding part of his job is the people he gets to work with and help out each day; commenting that he “… loves to interact with people from different walks of life. From high execs to the everyday man…”

Paul BaileyOutside of the showroom Paul is a newlywed to his lovely wife Melissa of 5 months. So currently, outside of work he enjoys married life with her and “getting away to celebrate one another”. In his spare time, Paul is a huge sports fan. Born and raised an Arsenal fan, his grandfather took him to his first match at Highbury Stadium at only 10 months old. However Paul loves the Sounders, Seahawks, and Mariners – just as he loves the city of Seattle itself. Paul lives in Fremont, which he describes as “a suburb feel in a great city” – fitted with nice places to eat and good breweries such as Elysian and Bad Jimmy’s. Seattle reminds Paul of home, despite it being a little wetter, however the summers here are much nicer.

 

Come in to Jaguar Land Rover Seattle soon, and give Paul a visit.
