Clive Wesson

Clive Wesson

CEO

Clive Wesson holds over 45 years’ experience in the motor industry. He has worked his way up the ladder in the car dealership environment, from Motor Technician to Dealer Principal of a Volkswagen dealership, where he was instrumental in converting the dealership from a “B’ status to “A” in a short space of time, achieving and exceeding national records in sales, customer satisfaction ratings and Car Dealership Management, and winning numerous awards along the way. Clive spent three years working as a Regional Manager for Volkswagen South Africa, gaining valuable wholesale experience and has also completed a vast number of motor industry specific sales, after-sales, business management and regulatory courses.

In 2000, Clive established Auto Deal, a pre-owned motor dealership which is to this day, successfully owned and managed by Clive. He thrives on finding solutions to the challenging nature of the motor industry and specifically to problems that an independent pre-owned and new motor dealer faces in an ever-changing business environment, especially with all the new legislation that a dealer is required to comply with.

To this end, Clive, in association with his two partners, Alan Levin of Ace Auto and Danie du Toit of Softoit Computing, have developed a comprehensive dealer management system. Visit www.autosavvy.co.za to enquire about this phenomenal system.

Clive is an avid motor sports fan, having competed on a national level himself. Clive won the inaugural Group N Class C championship in 1985 and has since been involved in preparing many a championship-winning race car for various competitors, including his son, Kurt Wesson.
