Involved in the Motor industry for 20 Years with an extensive history in the Commercial sector. I have built many strong relationships with my clients by being a good listener and having the ability to work with my clients to find the best outcome for their commercial requirements. Understanding that everyone has different needs and applications for the vehicles is important. Leisure activities: a strong family unit to whom I dedicate as much time to outside of work as possible with two young boys that enjoy their spots. I also enjoy a bit of road cycling.

I have been involved with the Giltrap Motor Group for a year and a half now, starting out my career straight after attending University of Canterbury. I recently moved over to the Volkswagen Commercial team to further immerse myself in the industry and become a brand ambassador. I thoroughly enjoy listening to and working with the customer to come up with a solution that works for them. Leisure activities include travelling to the Coromandel and the odd 18 holes of golf.
