From Public Housing to Exotic Superstars

Prindiville Design & Tuning

Here Alex was able to exercise his design skills, as showcased in a headline-grabbing, one-off Lamborghini.
Head of High Asset Valuations
As a result of the 2008 global financial crisis, Alex found work with multiple high-end pawnbrokers that had been losing money on its automotive deals. Tasked with helping value luxury cars to enable the company to secure a transparent price on its assets, Alex grew into the role of an Asset Disposal Specialist.
Luxury Car 2012 Showrooms
In the aftermath of the 2008 global financial crisis, Alex rebuilt his car sales business, opening a luxury showroom close to London’s Old Street, then relocating to premises within the shadow of Canary Wharf, where he determined a significant proportion of his potential clients were likely to work

From here Prindiville expanded into various areas of the automotive, construction and marine sectors.
Crushed but not completely broken, Alex used his depressing experience to create an ethical property development company that will help others who have reached the same rock bottom as he had. And following the deaths of both his parents and the marvellous attention they received in their final days from the wonderful NHS staff, he’s passionate about providing affordable housing for Britain’s army of Key Workers.
Auto Boutique London
While electric is the future for the masses, Alex believes traditional luxury cars will always have a place in the hearts of the passionate. Auto Boutique is located in a discreet underground car park on the edge of Hyde Park in the glamorous heart of London and is an all-inclusive facility – car storage, touchless car wash, detailing, servicing, bodywork, etc.
London Electric Centre
In an automotive world that is being propelled into an electric future by legislation and public pressure, Alex is ahead of the game. Within his Hyde Park premises the London Electric Centre (LEC) is adapting the facility to store, charge and maintain up to 150 electric vehicles.
