Meet The Team

"I am Janet Hilton, Director of R M Fisher Ltd, and elder daughter of Dick and Jean Fisher. It is my great pleasure to share with you our staff, three of whom have worked here for over 30 years. A business is only as good as the people who work there and we are so very fortunate to have a wonderful team who share our values as a customer focused business. "

BRIAN HILTON (Director and Head of Business)

Brian has worked for R M Fisher since 1988. He is a very fair and laid-back boss who wants to sell as many vehicles as he can. He is such a good boss that you will always find him working on Sundays so his Sales Team can have a day off. Relaxation for Brian involves socialising with family and friends and walking his dogs. He has been a keen sportsman all his life playing football, rugby and squash but today he is more likely to be seen on the golf course - his lifelong ambition being to have a lower handicap but sadly for him he is unlikely to be able to match the single figure handicaps of his two sons.

JANET HILTON (Director)

I have worked for R M Fisher since 1988. I look after the Company’s finances and associated regulatory requirements. I share an office with Brian and our door is always open to both staff and customers. Outside of work I enjoy socialising with family and friends, taking our dogs on long coastal walks and keeping fit – trying to fit circuits, Pilates, running and yoga into my busy week. In 2019 at the age of 61, I fulfilled a lifetime ambition taking part in the Liverpool Rock and Roll Half Marathon (13.5 miles), completing it in 2 hours 30 minutes – a proud moment for me.

STEVE RONSON (Sales Manager)

Steve has worked for R M Fisher since 1985, starting off in Parts then moving to Sales where he has been Sales Manager since 1995. Steve is an integral part of our core Management Team and our trusted deputy and thereby enabling us to take time off for holidays and we appreciate the value, wisdom and commitment he brings to the Company. In his spare time Steve enjoys spending time with his wife and sons and loves all things red – especially wine and, for his sins, is a lifelong Manchester United fan.

SAM HILTON (Sales Executive)

Sam is our younger son who has worked for R M Fisher since 2013. He has youth and enthusiasm on his side and has brought a new dynamism to the Sales Department. He has developed an excellent knowledge of the motor trade and, combined with his outstanding IT skills and his sunny nature, is a huge asset to the Company. Outside of work, he enjoys country pursuits, socialising with his girlfriend and friends, having a lower golf handicap than his Dad but most of all he loves eating out – a wide range from fast food to haute cuisine.
