Andrew Suter. Known to all of his colleagues as ‘Sooty’.
The void created by the sudden death of someone as well liked and respected is still hard to grasp. He wasn’t just one of our Senior Salesman, he was part of the team and a friend to our customers and someone who you can’t ever imagine not being around for 8 hours a day, 6 days a week.
Andrew joined FJ Chalke Kia in Yeovil, July 2011, we still remember his fresh face and his wicked sense of humour as he walked through the showroom doors as the newly appointed Sales Executive.
He soon adapted to the exciting, fast paced life of the motor industry and through sheer hard work and dedication his attributes were recognised and his customer base began to grow.
Andrew understood the importance of being the best at what he did, from creating a relationship with his customers and even their dogs to gaining their trust and most importantly earning the respect he deserved.
He would be the one who sincerely wanted to know how your day was going and if he could help in any way he would. Andrew was a gent of the highest morals, honesty and integrity and a dear friend to his colleagues.
Beyond the office hours, Andrew was a husband and father first and foremost, and never a day will go by where he isn’t mentioned or remembered in that ‘busy’ day to day culture that we all live and work in.
