NEW JERRY CLAYTON BMW MANAGEMENT SET TO INVIGORATE DEALERSHIP THE LATEST ADDITION TO JERRY CLAYTON BMW IS NOT A NEW MODEL, BUT the return of a man who grew through the ranks of the dealership before embarking on an international assignment. “I’m excited to be home in New Zealand and proud to be working with such a highly regarded and aspirational brand,” said Steve Hilson, the new Dealer Principal of Jerry Clayton BMW in Takapuna. Fresh from two and a half years working as General Sales Manager for a BMW operation south of London, Steve is keen to develop a more relationship orientated dealership experience which focuses on top-quality customer service. “Regardless of whether you are buying a new pair of shoes, enjoying a meal in a restaurant or buying a new BMW, what’s most important is customer service. I’m a strong believer in establishing a lasting and trusting relationship with customers. That way they can enjoy their new BMW to the utmost and we can also share in their experience.” The 60 member team at Jerry Clayton BMW shares a similar philosophy and is equally as proud to sell the world’s most sustainable car brand, an accolade BMW has claimed for six consecutive years (as determined by the Dow Jones Sustainability Index). “BMW’s EfficientDynamic technology sets a new benchmark amongst prestige brands in terms of using less fuel, but at the same time increasing power and performance,” said Mr Hilson. “It is a remarkable achievement and one which enhances the green credentials of the brand.” And what does the immediate future hold for Steve and the team at Jerry Clayton BMW? “We’re building on a very successful year which saw the launch of the new X1 and 5 Series, as well as lifecycle impulse models for 3 Series Coupe, Cabriolet and X5. “There is considerable activity on the product front next year which gets underway with the release of the incredibly luxurious performance orientated BMW 6 Series Convertible, an unbelievably stylish yet fashionably understated all-new vehicle. I certainly have high hopes for the BMW brand and Jerry Clayton BMW.” PN JERRY CLAYTON BMW, 445 Lake Road, Takapuna T: 09 488 2000
