Alex’s Journey

Alex joined Listers Group in 2011 as a part-time, site-based Marketing Assistant, working across Mercedes-Benz, BMW and MINI. Throughout his part-time role, Alex was studying towards his Business Studies degree. Upon graduation in 2013, he became a full-time Marketing Assistant until his promotion to Marketing Manager in 2014.

Since joining Listers, Alex has developed a variety of skills that have helped him excel in every stage of his career. These skills vary from project management and data processing, to social media and events management. Prior to joining the Listers Marketing Department, Alex had no professional marketing experience, but had many transferrable skills from previous roles in Retail.

In June 2020, Alex became Junior Marketing Manager, and was quickly promoted to Senior Marketing Manager in October the same year. Over Alex’s 10-year career with Listers, he has witnessed the growing popularity of Digital Marketing, whilst also being able to explore new avenues of traditional marketing.

Some career highlights for Alex include Drive Days and Showroom Christmas Markets, which he hopes will begin again when it is safe to do so. A proud moment for Alex was when he managed the wildly-successful King’s Lynn showroom launch. Alex has also been nominated for Employee of the Month twice.
