Sales Exec AMG Specialist

Paul Geekie

Paul's association with performance vehicles started back in 2001 when he started as a trainee Sales Executive with TVR. In 2003 he joined us at Mercedes-Benz of Edinburgh at our former premises in Colinton Road. Throughout his time at Mercedes-Benz, Paul has supplied Mercedes-AMG vehicles to many of our customers who share the same passion for Mercedes-AMG vehicles. His favourite of those being the (R230) SL55 AMG – a car which redefined Mercedes-AMG with ground-breaking performance from its Supercharged V8. Following the installation of our new dedicated AMG showroom Paul has recently taken up the mantel of Mercedes-AMG Specialist at our Newbridge branch, and it is in this area of our showroom you can find him amongst the latest AMG vehicles.

Star Expert AMG Star Expert

Darren Johnson

Darren has been with us since April 2014, when he joined us as our first dedicated Star Expert, a specialist in Mercedes-Benz product knowledge. He was drawn to the Mercedes-Benz and Mercedes-AMG brands because of the lifestyle that compliments these brands and the fact that every product is slightly different and tailored to different needs. The close ties between our Motorsports divisions and our road cars made the company even more appealing.
Darren has completed a number of Mercedes-Benz accreditations including Star Expert training and Test Drive Excellence. He keeps well informed on the latest cars, technology and motoring news from across the globe which helps him deliver great customer service, which is unsurprising given that he was awarded “Ambassador of World Class Customer Service” at Starbucks U.K.
His favourite Mercedes-AMG model is the current SLK55 AMG as it’s just a bit different from what most people would choose, and you can see more of his favourite cars on his Instagram @benzgeek
