Hello, my name is Julian Rinaldi, the owner here at Musbury Garage. I want to take this opportunity to give you a brief overview of myself and the fantastic team I have supporting the business at every stage. My background is very much in the motor industry having studied at Somerset College for four years. In 1990, I won both Best Motor Vehicle Student and Best Engineering Student Award. I joined the family business full time in 1988 before taking over Musbury Garage from my parents in 2008. Fast forward to present day and my priority within Musbury Garage remains the same. I’m dedicated to listening to our customers to ensure that we are delivering the customer service, engagement, and value for money that is expected of us. In my free time, I love motor racing, especially F1 and proudly support Yeovil Town Football Club.
As our senior vehicle technician and MOT tester, Jamie loves working on a wide range of vehicles. His very high standards and attention to detail shines through in all of his work and I’m super proud to say he’s been with the company for over 25 years. When he’s away from the workshop, Jamie loves fast Fords.
Dave joined the company in 2017 and it’s safe to say he’s very much a people person. With a long previous career as a local HGV driver and with a keen interest in the local community, Dave brings a wealth of experience and knowledge to Musbury Garage within his role of Senior Service and Vehicle Rental Advisor. When he’s not at work, you’ll find Dave organising local music festivals across the South West region.
The latest workshop vehicle technician to join our growing team, Alex became part of the Musbury Garage family in January 2017. With a love of all things fast, Alex is an Audi enthusiast and I know he loves nothing more than working on all Audi models if he has the chance! In his free time, Alex enjoys competing in local drag racing events and often shows his own car at specialist events across the UK.
Alan joined the company as a part-time Service and Rental Advisor in 2017. He has great people skills having previously worked in the vending machine industry. He loves Endurance racing and has spectated at the Le Mans 24 hour race on many occasions.
As with all of our team members, Matt is a pivotal part of our team. Joining the company in 2016 as our rental vehicle valeter, delivery driver and workshop assistant, Matt’s days are always different. There’s always lots of variety within his role and he seems to thrive in the fast paced environment here at Musbury Garage which is great to see. Both in and outside of work, Matt has a known soft spot for Peugeots.
They say you can’t put a price on experience and that’s most certainly the case when it comes to Theresa. As our Spar store manager, Theresa joined the company in 2008 and has huge retail experience- nearly 40 years to be exact! She always keeps the Spar store stocked up with essentials, ready for all of our fantastic customers and I’m delighted to have such a hardworking soul as part of our team.
Reliable, efficient and friendly, what more can I say? As our Post Office Manager, this is now Debbie's third spell with the company over a near 30 year period. I cannot thank her enough for all of her hard work and dedication over the years. When Debbie finds the time, she loves to travel to Scotland, exploring the stunning scenery and soaking up the local traditions.
