Meet the team
We couldn’t devise the most intelligent approach to car ownership without a great team.
I have been showing people how great novated leasing is for over a decade and still have a strong desire to keep spreading the good news! If I am not doing that, then you will find me playing baseball or cricket (or watching my wife play baseball, knowing that she is better at it than me!) while taking care of our three cheeky kids all under 10 who keep us laughing all the time!
Having a big family we needed a big car. The Toyota Kluger was a perfect choice with great internal layout to keep the kids well separated so they don’t fight, plenty of power even when going on holidays with a full boot and many features that the wife and I like! I enjoy analysing why a novated lease is such a great option and for us the simple fact is, this car costs us $1900 less than 0% finance each year – this makes it such a cheap option and brings a smile to my face knowing that the ATO is covering a good percentage of my cars cost!
I am a Holden man and loved watching Brock go around the mountain when I was a kid, so it is totally ironic that my first car was a 1987 V8 Ford Ute (column shift) – my dad let me buy it off him cheap, so beggars can’t be choosers!
Prior to having three crazy kids in the back of the car I would have said driving a guttural V8 on any windy road with mountains and forest in the background. These days, any road trip that doesn’t involve whining, fighting or crying would make me happy!
I have worked at several organisations within the salary packaging industry and it is my honest opinion that Autopia’s uniqueness is the fact that the people who work here have a genuine desire to assist clients by showing them how novated leasing can benefit them – not selling a client a car but actually making them realise that this system, for many people, is the cheapest way they can own and operate a vehicle!
