Find out more about the Cridfords team
Jonathan started working in the motor trade when he was 12 years old as a Saturday and Holiday boy. He spent his early years at a specialist dealer where his love for Porsche began. In 1987, he branched out and started Cridfords. He spent his youth driving, racing (and crashing) boats, cars and motorcycles, but now can be found covered in mud and sweat riding his mountain bike in the Surrey Hills.
