PEP Automotive helps clients in the automotive industry – manufacturers, importers, dealer networks and dealer groups - to achieve measurable performance improvement from their new and used car sales & aftersales activities.
Driven by the desire to deliver results, PEP Automotive strongly believes in a full appreciation of each client’s objectives - to deliver bespoke solutions tailored to individual markets and specific requirements.
Creativity is important; we do think outside the box and we are never ‘one size fits all’ but our ideas are always underscored by practicality and sustainability.
Specific areas where PEP Automotive can help:
PEP Automotive is based in the UK but operates throughout Europe, the Middle East and India with consultants based in many of these markets. We bring this global experience to all our clients, ensuring informed strategy, clear focus and results – quickly!
PEP Automotive also help with improvements to new car sales performance and provides specific ‘deep dive’ consultancy in all aspects of dealership management.
A full range of specialist digital tools developed by PEP, branded PEP Auto Apps, is available and used to complement the practical experience of the whole team.
World class athletes, golfers, tennis players, the very best performers in all sports, use coaches to help them to identify ways to improve their skills, maximise opportunities and give them a competitive edge. The same principles apply in the automotive industry, where competition and vying for consumer attention is often intense.
PEP Automotive can provide you with an independent view, delivered by experienced professionals who will share world class techniques and processes and help you to adapt them to your own culture, scale of operation and budgets.
PEP Automotive Consultancy services cover:
PEP Automotive’s approach is always tailored to specific needs; we establish clear objectives and timescales at the outset and monitor results alongside our clients as part of the team.
While the impetus for change or development is likely to come from performance and process analysis, it is inevitable that the motivations, skills and personalities of the people involved will have played a significant part in creating the issues under review.
So a typical assignment would also involve a ‘deep dive’ approach to conversations with staff at all levels of the operation, followed by an analysis of processes to gain insight and understanding.
Recommendations are supported by a ‘what if’ study to demonstrate the financial benefits of the proposals; on-going support can be engineered into the assignment to maintain momentum and motivation.
Clients find that PEP Automotive provides a supportive, practical and confidential service, designed to meet key business objectives.
Wherever possible, we aim to help existing management to adapt and improve - to their personal benefit as well as to that of the business.
In addition, PEP Automotive’s library of management tools can provide useful shortcuts for managers to achieve a step change in performance.
PEP Automotive enhances existing skills and helps to develop new ones – for a competitive edge that can be seen in results.

The world of motorcycles is a vibrant one that continues to change and evolve.
Practical commuter usage is much less dominant than it was, having given way to a growing leisure-based industry that provides excitement and escapism for many people.
This changing profile, combined with more demanding customers, provides a dynamic industry that few companies are experienced enough to include in their portfolio of services.
PEP Automotive has worked internationally with many motorcycle manufacturers and offers a wealth of knowledge and expertise.
In our experience, the industry is largely populated by hugely enthusiastic and knowledgeable ‘bike people’ that work hard and serve their customers well. Our aim is to take that energy and product knowledge and fuse it with some new and improved key skills, for an all-round excellent performance.
PEP Automotive’s intervention is to offer focussed Performance Improvement support for manufacturers and business owners, based on three key areas:
Including bespoke classroom-based training and development programmes for Sales, Aftersales and General Management, PEP Automotive will deliver results that benefit individuals and businesses.
PEP Automotive’s onsite consultancy also provides an independent overview of performance, with practical recommendations that can quickly impact on processes and behaviour to improve the three key areas.
