In Loving Memory of

Mike Whorley

Mike Whorley

Mike will be missed by many people at Renault, but particularly his colleagues in the parts field team and the many dealerships he worked with, who would invariably describe him as straightforward, honest and helpful. He spent his entire Renault career, over 13 years, “at the coalface” working with the dealer network where he was always a team player and would put the needs of the team and others first – a selfless trait that we all recognised and respected.

Like many of us, Mike was a “motor trade lifer” and had worked his way up in the industry, starting as an apprentice rising to be both a parts manager and service manager in the network before joining Renault UK. With this wealth of experience and his knowledge of systems it’s no surprise that he was very much our “go to” man in terms of understanding parts operations and had been a key part of the team implementing a new ordering system.

Personally, professionally and simply for being a thoroughly decent man, he will be missed and remembered.
