Derek

Derek

We are please to welcome Derek to our team. Some of you may recognise him from another certain specialist in Leeds! Del has previously worked with Brian, Martin and Rick so we hope he settles in quickly and it's just like old times before we know it. 

Brian

Brian

Brian has been involved with Land Rovers from an early age. A family interest in Land Rovers and Range Rovers prompted a three year apprenticeship a Guy Salmon in Leeds (now Farnells) where Brian qualified as a NVQ level 3 technician and became Land Rover's Nation Apprentice of the Year winner in 2001. With the ambition to own his own garage one day, a change in direction saw Brian move to Farnell Land Rover in Guiseley, to gain valuable experience in a service advisor role before returning to the workshop floor at Four Plus 4 in Leeds. Brian spent four enjoyable years there until 2005 before the opportunity came along to start Green Oval Garage. The rest as they say is history ............

Martin

Martin

Martin was part of the successful parts department of Guy Salmon Leeds for almost 10 years gaining the manager's position in 2005 before joining the Green Oval team in 2009. Martin has brought to his role a wealth of parts knowledge and the ability to find even the most obscure of items to meet individual customer requirements. Martin is your first point of contact if you have any parts queries or would like to book your vehicle in for our experienced technicians to look at. Martin now drives a 2007 Range Rover Sport HST TdV8.  He had a 2007 Discovery 3 that we have converted to look like a Discovery 4, have a look at our gallery section to see how we did it. 

Ashley

Ashley

As a growing business, we expanded our workforce once again and welcomed Ashley to the team in August 2013. Ashley is a fully qualified NVQ level 3 vehicle technician with experience in a variety of different cars at his previous garage. Ashley is constantly changing his own cars. His current modes of transport are a Discovery 300 Tdi for daily use, his latest projects are a 1956 Ford Anglia with a 2.0 Litre Pinto and a Nissan Mirca Rally Car, which he races alongside the BTRDA and British Historics.

Craig

Craig

Craig started at Green Oval working Saturday mornings whilst still at school way back in 2008. He became a full time member of the team in the August. As well as working closely with Rick and Brian, Craig became a NVQ level 3 motor technician through Leeds City College winning the IMI Award's Brompton Trophy for Apprentice of the Year in 2011. Nine years on, Craig is still a valuable member of the team and becoming the elder statesman in the workshop. You may also see Craig working in the service reception from time to time gaining experience as we look to expand and learn new skills. Craig has converted his family into Land Rover owners with his parents and sister now both driving one of Solihull's finest. Craig is now the proud owner of a bright yellow Mitshubishi Evo, and I thought Land Rovers were demanding!!!

George

George

George has settled into the fold nice and quickly. He has been visiting Green Oval with his Dad's 90 for the last few years and is now bitten by the bug. We feel it's important to invest in our future and encourage these young lads who have a passion for the product we work on. Big G hates having his photo taken but we promise he is enjoying himself!

Oliver

Oliver

Oliver left Whitcliffe Mount high school to embark a 3 year apprenticeship with us in 2015. He's showing great early signs and wants to have his dad's Land Rover Discovery Td5 to replace his first car, his Ford Fiesta. Oliver will be shadowing our senior mechanics to see how we work and the standards we endeavour to maintain. Keep up the good work mate. 

Rick

Rick

Rick joined Brian in March 2007 after 17 years at Four Plus 4 bringing with him vast knowledge and experience on all models Land Rover. Rick started working on the Solihull vehicles before Brian was born so there isn't much he hasn't seen or done. Rick was part of the original three man team when Land Rover opened it's dealership in Leeds. Now as senior technician at Green Oval Garage, Rick is our main MOT tester and is available to test your Land Rover on our dedicated MOT test lane. Rick runs a Freelander Commercial but dons his leathers and crash helmet whenever the weather allows to get out on his Kawasaki.
