At the end of 2019 we celebrated a very special Anniversary as one of our popular team members, Senior Service Advisor Avril Smith, marked 25 years with the Porsche Brand.
Avril started her journey with Porsche as an Apprentice Technician in 1994 at a Porsche Centre in Little Aston. To have a female Technician at that time was a rarity and prompted a lot of interest resulting in Avril being interviewed for Central News.
Avril completed her Apprenticeship and became a Technician in 1997. Over her time with the brand she moved on to become a Service Technician, Warranty Advisor and currently in her role as a Senior Service Advisor. Avril commented ‘I am very lucky to work for Porsche, I love the brand, the customers and the teams that I have worked with’.
Avril has built many working relationships with our customers who despite the Porsche Centres relocating from Little Aston to Sutton Coldfield and then onto the brand-new Wolverhampton Centre in 2016, have tended to move with Avril, travelling to continue receiving the same high standard of service they have had for many years.
Jodi MacDonald, Centre Principal of Porsche Centre Wolverhampton, presented Avril with champagne, flowers and a long weekend in Stuttgart to include a visit to the Porsche Factory, something Avril has been longing to do again since her first visit many years ago.
*Data determined in accordance with the measurement method required by law. Since 01 September 2018 all new cars are approved in accordance with the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP). You can find more information on WLTP at
. From 01 January 2019, all fuel consumption figures are shown as determined in accordance with WLTP. CO₂ figures will be shown as NEDC-equivalent values, as CO₂ based taxation will continue to be based on an NEDC value (derived from WLTP) until 06 April 2020. For Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV) range and Equivalent All Electric Range (EAER) figures are determined with the battery fully charged, using a combination of both battery power and fuel.
Values are provided for comparison only. To the extent that fuel and energy consumption or CO₂ values are given as ranges, these do not relate to a single, individual car and do not constitute part of the offer. Optional features and accessories can change relevant vehicle parameters such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics which may result in a change in fuel or energy consumption and CO₂ values. Vehicle loading, topography, weather and traffic conditions, as well as individual driving styles, can all affect the actual fuel consumption, energy consumption, electrical range, and CO₂ emissions of a car.
