About the Miles Group

With dealerships dating back to as early as 1918, the Miles Group is one of New Zealand’s leading independent motor vehicle groups, officially representing a diverse range of respected vehicle brands throughout New Zealand.

Our group exists today thanks to our founding director’s focus on excellence in customer service throughout all aspects of our business, combining the strength of our nationwide group with a local-centric approach to each dealership’s own community.

Along with servicing all aspects of New Zealanders’ vehicle needs – from sales and finance to service, parts, and accessories – the group’s dealerships all play an active part in supporting their local communities through various charitable and sporting initiatives, investing in a better tomorrow.

Bruce Miles

Founder and Governing Director Bruce Miles, with the support of his wife Kay, combines a passion for the automotive industry with an understanding of the market, bringing over 40 years’ experience. Bruce’s instinct for the car business is evident in every aspect of his successful career, whether it is selling cars in New Zealand and England, managing dealerships, or pursuing his involvement in motor racing as a saloon car driver and team sponsor.

Today, Bruce & Kay continue their hands-on role with the Miles Group. An integral aspect of the Group’s success has been its ability to attract and retain high-calibre staff. Some have been with Bruce & Kay since the very beginning. Learn more about the history of the Miles Group.

Andre Heyns

After 20 plus years of working for and within the Miles Group, I can firmly attest that our people make our business and with the best people in place we can ensure that we are the best company we can be. No business is able to survive or thrive unless they take care of their customers, and our loyal customers are the lifeline of our business. As Managing Director, I thoroughly enjoy working with a fabulous team of passionate, hardworking, and professional individuals that lead their various teams within our group. It is extremely important to me that the company culture and vision aligns with my set of values and beliefs. I have always relished the opportunity to be involved in a forward thinking and progressive family owned business that tries to make a difference and stand out from the crowd.

Rowan Barbalich

My primary focus within the Miles Group is ensuring our network of operators have the best property facilities available to them. This enables our staff to focus on what they do best – providing exceptional retail and customer service. A standard day sees me working with our consultants and tradespeople to deliver a broad range of building projects. I work closely with our senior management team to ensure we are taking a strategic approach to the group’s property portfolio and that this approach will serve us well in the rapidly changing automotive industry.

Tania Taylor

I’ve worked with the Miles Group for over thirty years, starting out on the accounts receivable team for Carthy Motors, one of Bruce’s first companies. As Operations Manager for a number of our brands, I support the management team in all operational aspects, finalise financial accounts, and also answer the phone! I love a good challenge, and each day allows me to think outside the box.

Jennifer Logan

It seems like just yesterday that I left university and started my first job as a Vehicle Administrator at Cockram Nissan. 30 plus years and several roles later, I now manage the operations of several companies that fall under the Miles Group umbrella. I work with an amazing support team and alongside a progressive and forward-thinking management group. I am humbled to have been a part of this family-owned business for such a long period of time.

Mark Lincoln

I’m humbled to lead our team of exceptional marketing professionals in all aspects of the Miles Group’s marketing. We’re proudly ‘in-house’. If you’ve ever spoken with our brands through social media, received an email campaign about your vehicle, read a helpful article on our websites, or viewed our group’s advertising in digital or print media, then you’ll have seen the work of our own team rather than out-sourced third parties. We pride ourselves on the personal touch. Reach out if you ever have any feedback for us on what we’re doing well or how we can improve. I look forward to hearing from you.

Jenny Woods

My staff and I make sure that the high calibre of client care for which the Miles Group is recognised goes beyond the on-site experience. The helpful voices attending to our customers’ requirements are members of our team of customer service professionals, a service that we helped pioneer in New Zealand’s automotive sector and that is much valued by our clients. After a customer makes a purchase or receives service from us, my team also reaches out to ask for feedback. Every week, we compile this input and provide it to each department, strengthening the customers’ voice in the company’s internal operations. I’m honoured to work for a business that pursues perfection through ongoing development.

It’s a privilege working alongside passionate, talented, and driven owners, colleagues, and business partners striving for industry leading excellence alongside achievement of ambitious company objectives.

I support a number of the Miles Group’s companies by co-ordinating their Health, Safety, Quality and Environmental Programs. This helps ensure a safe, compliant, and responsible organisation with a strong focus on minimising risks and accidents. It is refreshing to be working alongside so many proactive and open-minded people. While I have not been a team member for as long as some, I am proud to be a part of this business.
