Meet the team
We couldn’t devise the most intelligent approach to car ownership without a great team.
Spending the last 15 years working in the automotive industry has given me the opportunity to develop and indulge my interest in sports, and cars, in particular the V8 Supercars.
Another real passion for me now is playing (and watching) golf, and my wife and daughter would certainly consider me a golf fanatic. My daughter’s participation and love of Irish dancing recently saw us spend a couple of weeks in the US, visiting Nashville (not the first place you would think an Irish dancing competition would be held), Memphis, New York and LA. New York got the vote as the place to go back and visit again!
I’ve grown up a Ford Fan (and still cheer on the V8s), and over the years my vehicle choices have mirrored our changing lifestyle. Like most families, the SUV has been popular and a number of Ford Territories have made an appearance, as well as a Subaru Outback. Once the family had grown up, the large SUV/Wagon was no longer required for us and it was time to downsize – but we wanted to stay with the versatility SUV’s offered.
I currently package a 2013 BMW X1 2.0lt Diesel. It’s a great car to drive and package given its resale value, and the diesel provides great fuel economy. The golf clubs and gear fit neatly into the back, and I get the versatility provided from a small SUV. I also maximise my tax benefits as it delivers a low Total-Lifetime-Cost™.
Any road that that leads to a golf course is pretty good in my books. A couple of years ago we did a golf trip to Tasmania, and driving from Launceston airport to Barnbougle Dunes was a great scenic drive.
We had a couple of Toyota Tarago people movers, which were great for the guys and their gear on road, but not so good when the Navman took us down this ‘off the beaten track’ dirt road. We continued to drive as if we were on sealed roads until one of our occupants screamed “Stop the car now, I’m getting out!”…no sense of adventure.
The other memorable road trip was many years ago when my wife and I drove from San Francisco to Los Angeles, down the Pacific Coast Drive, spectacular scenery!
Working for an organsation that values its employees is great, but what’s even better, is that fact that this flows through to the customers.
My role is all about providing exemplary service to our corporate clients, and to know that the organisation behind me also has a strong customer focus, and a commitment to meet and exceed expectations – it just makes my job all the more satisfying, and easier!
It’s also a great environment, full of like minded car enthusiasts.
