Meet the Team


Director - Mark Compton

Mark started Caravan Tech Services back in 1987 in a Bedford Rascal Van, servicing caravans and motorhomes across the South East.

After many successful years, Mark's customer base became so large he needed to move the business forward and grasped at the opportunity to buy the Hurst Green site the business now trades from. 1997 saw the birth of Caravan Tech (Sales) Ltd and has continued to flourish since day one.

Mark is happily married and has three lovely daughters. He also has two Chocolate Labrador's Mouse and Minnow who can often be seen in the shop meeting and greeting. Mark's hobbies include walks with the dogs, cars and tennis.

Sales Manager - Richard Santer

Sales Manager - Richard Santer

Richard joined Caravan Tech fresh out of college way back in 1998 and was thrown straight in at the deep end. He launched his illustrious selling career with a bang selling two caravans on his first day!

Over the years Richard has gained a wealth of knowledge from his wide range of experience within the industry and thus has built a large customer base. Richard was promoted to Sales Manager and has successfully lead the team to new heights in their quest to be the best sales team in the UK, then the world.

Richards interests out of work include spending time with his ever expanding family of a wife and, at present, five children, trips away in some of our caravans, Motocross racing and living the eternal nightmare of being a Liverpool fan.

Alex joined the sales team in 2002 coming from the automotive parts industry in search of a new challenge. He quickly gained an extensive knowledge of caravans and motorhomes and has used this to his advantage wowing his customers with his facts and figures.

Like Richard, Alex has a large and loyal customer base who don't hesitate to come and find him if they are in need of some advice whether it be on how to rectify issues or which caravan or motorhome to buy next.

Outside of work, Alex spends his time with his wife and baby daughter, playing football, doing his hair and practicing his dance moves (a must see for all!).

Sales Executive - James Mackay-Jennings

James joined the team in September 2018 and went straight in at the deep end with this being his first time in sales with little to no knowledge about caravans and motorhomes when he started but he picked it up in no time. 

Outside of work he loves motor racing and you can find him at most of the motor sport events at silverstone, brandshatch etc. 

One day he hopes to be driving the racing cars not just watching !!!

Sales Administrator - Suzanne Lyne

Suzanne re- joined the sales team in April 2019, she had the pleasure of working in the same role around 9 years ago. So she's definitely a glutten for punishment. She quickly settled in to her old job and is working her way through the mountain of paperwork the sales team generates.

Suzanne worked at Tesco in Hawkhurst before she came back to us and seems to know everyone who comes into the shop, so there is always someone saying hi.

When Suzanne is not at work she is busy taking care of her family, along with helping out at Comedy Capers local amateur dramatics group, and socalizing with friends.

Alan has three children, of which one is Tom in sales, and three grandchildren who he loves to take on frequent caravanning adventures.
