Meet… Tim Ross
National Sales Manager at TGA Mobility
What does your position involve?
It incorporates managing the growing trade sales of TGA Mobility.
What do you enjoy most about your job?
The variety. Lots of things constantly come across my desk and the sheer variety means every day is interesting.
What is one of your proudest moments in the industry?
Having pretty much continual growth over a long period is a really satisfying feeling. It always reinforces that we are doing something right. Performing well on the Motability scheme is also testament to the products popularity but also their value for money for customers and Motability alike
What’s the biggest changes you have seen in the industry?
We have seen more people entering the market over the years with cheaper products. The challenge is making sure that we are consistently improving our total offering to dealers, maintaining the quality and making ourselves easier to deal with
If you could bring one new innovation to the market, what would it be?
I think the one innovation I would like to see brought to the market is actually arriving later this year with the introduction of the Minimo Autofold because it ticks so many boxes. It’s an automatically folding scooter that’s a good size for a variety of environments
What are your interests outside of work?
I used to like football until I ruptured my cruciate ligament (hopefully I’ll get back on a pitch soon) but my main interests are my lovely wife and kids. The family and home life are really important to me.
If you had to do any other job in the world, what would it be?
The idea of being in a forest, living off the land and surrounded by the wilderness and wildlife definitely has an appeal at times, so something a bit like Bear Grylls.
Describe yourself in three words
Straight-forward, reliable and trustworthy
What’s your favourite song?
Three little birds by Bob Marley
If you could have a superpower, what would it be?
It would definitely be nice to fly
