The Richmond team led by Shane Drummond and Ben Brownie consists of 4 experienced members who are knowledgeable, friendly and like to see their customers receive an experience they too would also be happy with. 

Alex Oliver has been in the industry for over 30 years and has covered all roles, loves spending time with his Grandkids and family, often seen in his yellow Corvette and is now E-Biking around the region. 

Josh Barker joined our team not long out of school after completing a marketing degree, he is young, brings enthusiasm, has good product knowledge and people love the customer service they receive from him. Josh is an animal lover, often goes out fishing or is soaking up the rivers. 

Tim Eddington is another long serving member who started out at The Car Company Tahuna and has recently joined our Richmond team, he was previously in the paint and panel industry and saw vehicle sales as a great option as he loves dealing with people. Tim is very understanding, knowledgeable, takes his time to make sure you are 100% happy with your new car and experience. If Tim isn't working, he will be getting those sails ready on the boat to head out for days.....he loves the water!

Alan will provide you with all the information you need to make an informed decision, he believes in only selling a product or service which he believes in.....trust me he is your man. If you like to have a laugh and some banter, Alan will have you smiling when you drive away.
