Meet Paul Brayley

Meet our Managing Director, Paul Brayley

Our philosophy of good, old-fashioned customer service stems from our Managing Director Paul Brayley and his experience. Paul is a seasoned motor retailer with over thirty years’ automotive experience. Born in Hampstead, he got early inspiration from his father working on his car. This led to Paul taking a motor vehicle apprenticeship in 1978.

Fast-forward twenty five years to 2003 and Paul took on the St Albans Honda dealership. Our stated policy to treat every visitor to Brayley Honda as a welcome guest in our home helped us to build a group of contented Honda owners and drivers, and Brayleys began to grow. The Brayleys group now includes four Honda and two Mazda dealerships, as well as a Kia, Renault and Dacia dealership, covering St Albans, Harpenden, Grays, Milton Keynes and more.
