Tim Dibbs

Crown Motors Group Managing Director​

I have been joint owner of Crown for 20 years. My day to day responsibilities are centred around Sales and Marketing. The most important part of my role is making sure Crown Honda & Crown Suzuki is always a place where consumers appreciate us and want to do business and where my fellow workers enjoy coming here.

Myself and my team always look to “exceed expectations” and this applies throughout the business, from the little things like the quality of the coffee all the way through to the bigger things like the explanation of your service invoice.

I have two grown up daughters who now work abroad in the USA and Australia.

I love golf, keeping myself fit and walking our dog Lola, a beautiful Cavapoo.

Lee Monahan

Crown Motors Group Managing Director

I have been at Crown for over 40 years. As a Company Director, my main responsibilities include overseeing the Aftersales department and the general day-to-day running of the business.

I feel that the most important part of my role is to ensure that Crown Honda continues to be successful by looking after our customers and staff. The thing I most enjoy about my job is that there is never a dull moment - no two days are ever the same!

Dave Cook

Crown Honda Bushey Heath Sales Manager​

I have been part of Crown Honda since 2000, firstly as a trainee Sales Executive before I qualified in that role, but since early 2012 I have had the honour of being Sales Manager at our Bushey Heath branch. I feel the most important part of my role is to ensure that every customer who comes into contact with us either by phone, email or in person, is dealt with in pleasant, professional manner from the start to finish of their enquiry.

I really enjoy catching up with my previous and existing customers that I have had the pleasure of dealing with over the years which is now in excess of 2500 Honda owners!

I've been married for 10 years and have one son, Rocco. I'm normally kept very busy in my spare time with him, however I do find time for watching and playing football.

An interesting fact about me? In the past few years my wife and I have raised over £24,000 for Cancer Research UK by organising two Charity Balls. We hope to do a sponsored Sky Dive in the near future to add to this total.
