Phil Whitehead Dealer Principal


Dealer Principal

I joined the company in 1987, and have ran a large number of car and bike franchises under Stratstone. It has been interesting taking on the role within Birmingham, getting to know the different customer base, and meeting the HOG chapter members. I started riding at eleven years of age and I spent a few years club racing 600's.

The favourite bike I have owned has to be the Suzuki GT750 flying kettle and my favourite Harley-Davidson model would have to be the Super Glide! We always hope you feel welcome here at the Birmingham Dealership and want you, the customer, to be satisfied with your Harley-Davidson experience.



Aftersales Leader

My passion for motorcycles started from an early age when my father built me a 50cc mini moto when I was just about tall enough to climb on it. It was put together from parts off so many different bikes and this was my starting point for a love of custom bikes and making something truly individual. All of my bikes since have always had my own spin on them and it’s fair to say my Dyna Street Bob didn’t stay stock for very long.

When an opportunity opened up as Parts Advisor here at Harley Birmingham in 2011 I jumped at it and never looked back. From there I moved on to Service Advisor followed by Sales Executive and I’m so excited to now be Aftersales Leader. Be it a service, those custom parts you desire or a new HD jacket to look the part, we’re here to make your dream a reality.

There is no better brand to be involved in than Harley-Davidson. I love it. 



Sales Executive

I joined Stratstone in August 2014, having bought my bike from the dealership the year before. Loving Harleys and custom bikes, I naturally wanted to join the team and start working alongside these guys and the customers.

I joined the team as a Parts Advisor, which was my first role within the motor industry. Coming from a mountaineering background, I've had a lot to learn, and have enjoyed picking up the knowledge of the Harley products. I have been into bikes since I knew what one was, so I have loved getting more into the trade. I currently own a Sportster which is slowly turning into the old-school bobber style that I love!                  

I am now working here as a Sales Executive, so I'm here to help you either start your Harley journey, or to help continue the ride!


Paul Hemming


Sales Executive

I bought my first Harley-Davidson back in the 80’s and have owned a lot of different models over the years. After buying a Fat Boy and a Heritage from Birmingham Harley-Davidson I then joined the team and worked at the dealership for three years until 2008 and after eight years away, I came back!

I enjoy long distance riding around the UK, Europe and the USA and I'm here to help you buy your next bike or your first one!

Becky Spears - Sales Administrator


Sales Administrator

I joined the company in 2013, and transferred from one of our sister dealerships, to work for Harley-Davidson as a Sales Merchandiser. I have really enjoyed working with the brand, running the merchandise department for two and a half years. The best part of the job was helping you guys really get the full Harley Experience, getting you geared up ready for the adventures on your new pride and joy! 

I have now moved on to work alongside the sales team as the Sales Administrator, developing my knowledge and involvement with the bikes. I am absolutely loving it and I am so pleased to continue to be a part of the Harley family.




Parts Advisor

Both my father and older brother were bikers so in 1984 the inevitable happened and I ended up on 2 wheels myself. In 1990 I took the biker lifestyle to its logical extreme and worked as a despatch rider in central London and south east England for just over 10 years. At a loose end in 2001, I was offered a temporary job counting stock for a local motorcycle dealership and I ended up becoming a parts advisor. I’ve been working at Stratstone Harley-Davidson since August 2018 and it’s a pleasure to be part of the friendly and hardworking team here. If you’re after service parts or accessories for your bike then I’m your man.


My current bike is a BMW F800ST, part of a long-line of Bavarian machinery going back to an ancient R100/7 airhead that was my trusty despatch steed for many years. The problem with working in a bike dealership is that one’s eye is easily turned by all the shiny stuff so I see a Milwaukee-Eight Fat Bob joining the Beemer at some point. I’m also looking forward to the introduction of Harley’s streetfighter and adventure bikes in the near future. There are exciting times ahead for the brand so it looks like I picked a good time to join the team at Stratstone Harley-Davidson.



Service Advisor

Ive just recently come back to the UK from living in Australia for over two years and have joined the Birmingham Harley team which I am super excited to be a part of. If you need anything from hard core riding gear or getting the Harley look just come in and ask for me!

Im a friendly, bubbly person who likes to create an interesting and vibrant clothing area which runs smoothly and efficiently giving you guys a great and welcoming experience.

Neil Dove Driver



I first got the bug for bikes at six years of age, riding a friends little 50cc auto. I then rode Motocross bikes through my teens. My first road bike at age sixteen was a Suzuki TS50x, which I thoroughly enjoyed! I passed my test at seventeen, since then I've rode most bikes available from superbikes to tourers.

I previously worked fifteen years as a full time motorcycle instructor, and what a great time I had, a true vocation. 

I had my first Harley in 2008; a sportster 1200 roadster which I still have the pleasure of owning. The shakes and sounds make every ride a real occasion (wicked fun). Working as a Driver for Harley is a real thrill for me and I can't wait to meet you folks. See you soon!

Jez Thomson Technician


Master Technician

I've been a Master Technician for Harley-Davidson for over ten years now, and there is not much I don't know about these great machines! My first bike experience of Harley was as a twelve year old pillion on a Harley in USA down the Daytona Drag Strip. The trip was made special by all the Harley riders over there and I had the bug! 

My favourite Harley is the Fat Boy, I think it's a real character of a bike that turns heads whenever I ride them and the handling is just amazing!




My passion for bikes started when I was very young growing up in Brazil. I have always been interested in engines and how they work. My father had a workshop when I was 10 years old which sparked my love for motors and electrics. I originally started working on cars but after discovering motorcycles I knew that is where my passion was and I’ve never looked back!

I’m so happy to be working as a technician here at Stratstone Harley-Davidson Birmingham. I currently ride a custom Sportster but love the traditional looks of the Fat Boy and have a sweet spot for the ride of Dyna models.

Cameron James



I started working for Harley-Davidson as an Apprentice Technician in 2015. I am in my element working on the bikes and I'm gaining so much experience and knowledge! I love being out on my own bike and I'm looking forward to going on as many trips as possible. I especially want to travel Europe! My ultimate favourite bike is a Sportster 48 with ape hanger bars!

Jakub Zygmunt



I am originally from Poland but came to live in England in 2013 and started to work here at Harley Birmingham that same year. I am in charge of valeting and maintaining the quality finish of your bike, keeping them looking brand new!

I love working here, so I always do what I can to help out.  I'm currently not a rider but I would definitely own a Forty-Eight, it’s a beautiful bike and I feel like it’d be a comfortable fit for me. When you come to visit us at the dealership, I'll always make sure that your Harley is pristine and ready to ride!
