Sam Knight

Meet The Team – Sam Knight, LCV Service Manager, Mercedes-Benz of Exeter (Van Aftersales)

Exeter’s brand new LCV Service and Trade Parts Centre in Hill Barton has now opened. The new site is an exciting addition to our Aftersales Facilities, and will be the new home to the Trade Parts and LCV Aftersales teams that currently reside at our Matford Park Hub.

The teams have now moved up to the new site in Hill Barton, so we thought we would introduce you to one of the friendly faces that you will be seeing around the new Centre.

Sam Knight will be making the move across Exeter to continue his role as LCV Service Manager. Sam, having been in the Motor trade for a whopping 21 years (five of which have been at Mercedes-Benz South West) will be bringing a wealth of knowledge to the team of experienced Technicians and Aftersales specialists.
