John has been involved in the Automotive Industry for over 30 years, and is passionate about the ' Industry' but mostly the people who work in it. Life in the Automotive Industry started in the UK, with Lancia and then Fiat, and then moved back to NZ where John worked with many brands including VW, Audi, Porsche, Hyundai, Saab, Scania, Iveco and Subaru.
He acquired NZ's largest Mitsubishi dealership in the late 80's, and then went on to run Subaru in NZ. Moving to Australia in the mid 90's, a long spell back in retail mainly with Ford was followed by John starting STW Automotive, a joint venture Advertising Agency with STW Group.
Moving away from STW, this became AdTorque Strategic Services and has become a significant partner for the Automotive Industry for over 12 years.
During this period John launched the Global Finance Renewal Platform Chrysalis to the Australasian Market, and John is at the forefront of Retention in the Automotive Finance space in Asia/Pacific, working with Global Automotive Brands, Finance Companies and Banks.
