Gianni Cipriano established Vanwagen Limited in 2014. He is well known throughout the commercial vehicle industry for his high standards, honesty and customer centric can do attitude. With 18 years of commercial vehicle experience Gianni started his career at Cooks Volkswagen Van Centre (currently Robinsons VW) in Peterborough. Starting in the service and parts department, which put him in good stead for his progression into the sales side of the business soon after. One of the top salesmen at the time, he built many long lasting relationships with customers and his colleagues within the industry.

In 2009 Gianni left Volkswagen and joined Limesquare Vehicle Rental as a Remarketing Manager, continuing to sell commercial vehicles to the trade where his knowledge in that sector grew, and more valuable relationships were built. Starting a business of his own was always a dream and in 2014 he finally took the leap and left Limesquare to start Vanwagen Limited. He has spent the last 4 years building the business whilst also working part time at a local ply-lining company.

At the end of 2017 Gianni entered into discussions with his best mate about the possibility of joining forces, which was once a childhood dream, and in 2018 Toby Bird bought into the business and became joint Director. This enabled them to expand Vanwagen and saw them move into premises in Yaxley, Peterborough, in the September.
