Hi I’m Dean, I started Puma Cars in 2005.
Having grown up in Tunbridge Wells, I attended St Johns School, Ridgewaye and finally West Kent College in Tunbridge Wells, where I achieved a Diploma in Construction Technology.
Due to the 90’s building recession, I changed paths and became a trainee salesman for a large commercial dealership. I was then offered a chance to work for GE Capital, where I became a Deputy Branch Manager for their large vehicle rental company. After 8 years I left GE having achieved the position of UK Real Estate Manager South.
At this point I decided to combine my passion for driving and my dream to be self employed and so Puma Cars was born.
I now live in Buxted, with my wife and our 3 daughters.
Hi I’m Kate and I’ve been working for Puma Cars for over 15 years now.
I grew up in Maidstone and attended Barming Primary and Maidstone Girls Grammar School. I then went on to Mid Kent College in Maidstone, where I achieved a Diploma in Travel and Tourism.
I went to work for several years at an Italian tour operator, where my role included arranging specialised travel itineraries, by booking accommodation, flights, trains and car hire. I also worked behind the scenes in the administration department.
I left there and went to work for GE Capital’s large vehicle rental company, where I met Dean. After several years, I left GE and went to work for a pharmaceutical marketing company. I initially worked within administration, where I was responsible for all the companies corporate travel and events planning. During my employment there I achieved, Administration, Customer Service and Management qualifications and I was promoted to Office and Administration Manager.
In 2008 our first daughter was born and as always planned, I left my role as Office Administation Manager to join Puma Cars.
