Sales stunner is a model performer
Filed under: News
A Lithuanian catwalk queen is proving she’s also a model saleswoman, after joining the team at a SEAT car dealership. Stunning Audra Baltrukonyte’s glittering modelling career has seen her travel the globe and land glamorous assignments in Paris and Milan. But since taking a part-time post at MK SEAT in Milton Keynes to help fund her university studies, she has proved she’s much more than just a pretty face. Because not only has the 21-year-old set pulses racing among customers and colleagues, she’s also set sales figures alight. The six-foot model, who is working towards an honours degree in marketing at nearby Northampton University, regularly sells more cars than many of her full-time colleagues. However, she claims her good looks hide the real secret for her sales success: a long-standing love affair with cars.
Audra, who still accepts modelling bookings when her studies allow, said: ‘A lot of people take one look at me and see a young and pretty girl, and think I couldn’t possibly know what I’m talking about. But I’ve loved cars since I was a little girl and actually know a lot about them, which our customers appreciate.
‘I do find that many female customers come to me for help because they prefer dealing with another woman. But most of my sales are to men who only commit to buying the cars long after they’ve stopped caring what I look like!’
Cliff Freeman, Dealer Principal at MK SEAT, is certainly glad he saw past Audra’s attractive exterior and recognised the gifted sales person within.
He said: ‘ Audra’s been a fantastic addition to our team and we’re delighted to have her on board. She’s a very bright and natural saleswoman.’
