Meet The Team

 

Colin Teasdale

Director

Colin, where do we start with Colin! Back in 1993, it was Colin along with the support of Pam who opened the Lead Hill Garage doors for the first time after leaving his role at a local Vauxhall dealership, where he had been since leaving school. Now, Colin predominantly oversees Service Department matters, but still likes nothing more than getting his overalls on. Outside of the busy work schedule Colin enjoys caravan holidays, playing the occasional bit of golf and watches any format of football that is on the TV.

Pam Teasdale

Director

Pam started the business along with Colin in 1993, fitting in anything she could do to help Colin in and around being a full-time Chiropodist. Now, today at Lead Hill you will find Pam overseeing matters, constantly with her head in bookwork...teaching Robert everything she knows! Outside of her time at work Pam enjoys cooking, handicrafts, holidays in Northumberland and passionately supports Sunderland Football Club.

Robert Teasdale

Director

Some may say Robert became a full time member of staff in 2012, joining immediately after graduating from the University of Sunderland with first class honours in Business and Marketing Management. However, many customers remember Robert being there from day one at three years of age with his dad, Colin, in the workshop building. Away from his desk in the showroom, Robert enjoys playing and watching golf, following Sunderland Football Club and being in his garden in the better weather.

Alan Fitton

Service & Maintenance Technician

Alan joined Lead Hill Garage in 1997 from a main franchised dealer, becoming Colin’s first member of staff...which made the workshop less lonely for him! To this current day, Alan is still in the same role carrying out servicing and repairs to vehicles that come through the door. Outside of work he enjoys various forms of motorsport and likes dogs.

David White

Service & Maintenance Technician

Shortly after Alan, David was employed in 1998 coinciding with the opening of the MOT testing station. David has worked for various manufacturers under the name of local dealerships, straight from leaving school. David is our chief MOT tester, it is beyond wonder just how many cars’ MOT certificates will have David Whites name on! Away from his ramp, David enjoys family time, motorsport and walking his dogs.
