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 Director of Business and Property 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.

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.

Colleen King

My team and I ensure that the high level of customer service the Miles Group is renowned for extends beyond the on-site experience. Our team of customer service experts are those friendly voices assisting our customers’ needs – a service that we helped pioneer in New Zealand’s automotive industry and which is greatly appreciated by our customers. My team also reach out to our customers for their feedback after they’ve purchased or serviced with us. We gather this feedback and distribute it weekly to each department, strengthening the customers’ voice in the internal processes of the business. I’m proud to be involved with a company that strives for perfection through continuous improvement.

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.

Our highly-skilled department produce compelling content marketing and advertising strategies to the eyes of thousands of kiwis everyday. Our team of motivated content creators, designers, copy writers, photographers, advertising specialists, and event coordinators individually contribute to our achievements as industry-leaders. My design background and eye for detail ensures accurate CI is delivered for each of our 19 marques. I really enjoy applying kaizen to every aspect for my job and I enjoy maintaining customer satisfaction processes and customer lifecycle touchpoints to ensure the pinnacle experience is delivered to every guest of our business.

Peter Smith

As a Chartered Accountant with over 20 years’ experience before joining the Miles Group, I have worked in roles across a wide range of businesses and industry sectors across New Zealand. None can compare to my current role with Miles Group, an industry leader in a dynamic fast paced environment that defines the New Zealand motor industry. 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.

Emily Kloogh

With a background in Graphic Design, I work alongside our in-house marketing team providing creative support across our 18 vehicle brands. Coming into the Miles Group gave me the opportunity to be more Digital Marketing focussed, and so alongside the creative support I also implement strategic digital advertising campaigns, create content for our social media pages, manage our many dealership websites, and put together engaging email newsletters for our guests. I look forward to providing assistance in adapting and improving our processes in response to striving for a five-star customer experience, always. 

Ashlyn Oswalt

I enjoy finding compelling ways to share our wide variety of Miles Group vehicles we have on offer through words, photos, and videos. With a background in journalism, I’m a sucker for good copy and enjoy writing and editing for our websites, eDMs, ads, and more. Connecting with our customers is an integral part of the Miles Group, so along with the rest of our talented marketing team, I look forward to finding new ways to make sure our customers’ experience online and in-store remain the best in class.

Jamiee Dolan

My love for organisation and planning has followed me for as long as I can remember, and always carried over into my work. In and out of my professional life I often find myself being the planner of fun and memorable events, and I thoroughly enjoy building relationships and connecting with people. My role as Events and Sponsorship Coordinator requires me to wear multiple hats; I am currently an expert at responding quickly to changing circumstances while maintaining a positive attitude, and thinking two steps ahead, always prepared to implement plan B or C if needed!
