A finance expert has swapped the motorsport industry for life in the property fast lane.
Ben Spencer has joined commercial property specialist Holt Commercial, which has offices in Coventry and Birmingham and works across the Midlands region, as the company’s new finance controller.
Ben, who worked and trained in accountancy straight from when he left school in 1993, had spent a short period out of industry to take care of his three children.
That was after five years working for Rugby based Tolman Motorsport, which is a pioneering engineering company that restores, rebuilds and recreates classic vehicles.
It hit the headlines in 2022 when its Tolman Edition Peugeot 205 GTI was driven by Freddie Flintoff on Top Gear and he later named it his car of the year.
Ben loved his time with the business but is now looking forward to getting his teeth into another challenge, as Holt Commercial continues to grow.
The company – which offers agency, property management, investment and valuation services to clients – has added three more property professionals to the team over the past year and is looking to recruit further.

Ben said “I am really pleased to join Holt Commercial.  I really enjoyed my time at Tolman and then took a short period out to take care of my three children.
I was looking for a new opportunity and a new challenge and I was introduced to Holt Commercial by a contact and it was a perfect fit.
The company has grown in the past 12 months and it is a great to be joining at an exciting moment in the business’s history.”
Nick Holt, Director of Holt Commercial, said “We can’t offer the fast cars that Ben would have seen in his previous job but things are definitely moving at pace here at Holt Commercial.
The team is growing, our services are more and more in demand and there are further opportunities to develop the business moving forward.
It’s great to have Ben on board.”
