When did you start working here?
Why did you decide to come to Llewellyn Motors?
I have been with Mercedes-Benz for 9 Â½ years then EuroMarque Ferrari and Maserati for 7 years. My family purchased a farm at Hatton Vale and I wanted to work closer to home. I was also given the opportunity by Wade Llewellyn to see if I could bring my knowledge from prestige to his much loved brands.
What's the most important thing you've learned working at Llewellyn Motors?
How to manage large teams.
What's the biggest change from when you started to right now?
I have had many changes with Llewellyn's. Going from 2IC in Holden then Sales Manager with Toyota and now General Sales Manager. But my biggest change is my knowledge on how to manage staff.
What's your absolute dream car? The one car you know you'll never be able to own, but wish you could?
1969 Mustang Mach 1 with a 429 big block. The one car you know you'll never be able to own, but wish you could? I have driven most of my dream cars. From Ferrari 458, to a Ferrai F40. But would love to own a Ferrari 360 Challenge Stradle. (Could be achievable, just need to set goals.)
What is one thing about you that might surprise people?
I live on a 110 acre property. So on the week end I play farmer.
