The Staff

Nick Buckthorpe

Nick has been a Director of Regent Street Automotive since 2008. He started off his motor trade experience with Pendragon PLC in 1989 working for Merlin Porsche and Land Rover in Nottingham, eventually becoming Land Rover Sales Manager. Wanting a change of direction and product, he went to work for the long established Thomas family at B & K Thomas Mercedes-Benz on Trent Bridge in Nottingham in 1998. After various take overs, he became Sales Manager at Derby Mercedes-Benz who were by that time owned by Inchcape. He stayed with Mercedes-Benz, moving to be Sales Manager at Mansfield. When Mansfield finally closed, he then went to work at Bentley Leicester, part of the Sytner group. When the opportunity arose to re-unite with previous colleagues to run their own business, it was too good a chance to pass up and he joined Regent Street Automotive in 2008. Nick has a wealth of experience in dealing with prestige customers and his repeat business speaks for itself. Quote "I have always tried to deal with customers as I would with my parents" Nick is a reliable and trustworthy guy to deal with and we hope should you have any dealings with us, he will exceed your expectations!

Nick Watson

Nick has been with Regent Street Automotive since 2008. He has, like his colleagues, been in the motor trade for over 20 years, working in franchises such as Land Rover, Jeep, Mitsubishi and TVR.
Nick’s passion is to get the deal done quickly and efficiently with a strong focus on customer satisfaction and quality service. He has travelled the country from Cornwall to Dundee to visit clients, and nothing is too much trouble to get the job sorted.

Dave Henshaw

Dave has been with Regent Street Automotive Ltd since it's inception in 2008. He started his life in vehicle finance as a Business Manager with D C Cook in Sheffield back in 1998. He has since worked for Vauxhall, Citroen, Ford and more recently Land Rover, Porsche and Mercedes-Benz. His roles have been in both vehicle finance and sales management. Dave is of the belief that the financing of a car is one of the most important aspects of buying it. It may be the perfect vehicle for you, it may look good, feel good and do everything you want it to do, but get the funding wrong and you may not enjoy it as much as you should. It is our aim to make you smile whenever you get in to your new car and not worry about how you are going to make the monthly payments!
