Meet The Newest Member of the Rivervale Car Leasing Team ....... Bud!

Meet Bud ……………

At Rivervale Car Leasing we are always happy to welcome a new member of the team, so Bud is no exception! Bud has joined us as our new Marketing Manager so we thought you would like to know all about him ...... join me as I find out – Who is Bud?

Not only is Bud the newest member of the team he is also the tallest! At 6ft 4 he stands head and shoulders above the rest of the Rivervale team ……. We were all a little surprised as boss man Vince seems to like employing more vertically challenged people …….. Maybe this reveals an insecurity about your own height Vince????!!!!!!!!

Bud ????? So why if his name is Bol is he called Bud? When I asked him he didn’t seem to know! He has been called Bud since birth ….. Secretly I was hoping for a hilarious story involving the consumption of Budweiser, but hey we can’t have everything!

Outside of work ????? Bud loves playing basketball and football outside of work and also revealed he can play the drums and the guitar ….. So I feel some musical advertising may be in the not too distant future!

What makes you mad ????? We wanted to know what really wound Bud up, so we can try and avoid doing it - and the answer is mess! He is ok with his own mess but if other people are untidy he starts seeing red …… we are all now busily organising our desks!

Any Pets???? This is a big no, even at 6ft4 Bud is terrified of dogs!

Any first day nerves???? Bud is cool, calm and collected! He already knows most of the Rivervale Car Leasing boys from playing football and has previously been a very satisfied customer of ours. Before working here Bud had leased a Mercedes-Benz C Class and my favourite a Nissan Juke! Bud is now driving a Mercedes-Benz E Class in Collelline Blue with Platinum White Designo Aniline Leather …. Very fancy!

So where was Bud before he became part of the Rivervale Car Leasing family?????? Well let me tell you for only 30 years old Bud has packed quite a lot into his life!!!

It all began in Iceland where Bud played professional basketball for a year before moving to Germany and playing for FC Schalke04 for 31/2 years! Not content with just his sporting ability he then went to university and completed a Sport Management degree. From here Bud has worked for LA Fitness, William Reed Business Media and most recently for Brighton and Hove Albion as a business development executive before finally landing in the Rivervale Car Leasing Loft!
