My personal story:
With 19 years experience in automotive sales I started my career as a salesman and then progressed to Fleet sales within the Seaman’s Motor Group in Port Elizabeth.
In 2002 I was head hunted to BMW Port Elizabeth Continental Cars starting as the Mini Agent and after 2 years I started selling BMW vehicles.
I was then promoted to Motorrad (Motorcycle) Sales Manager which included sales, prospecting, promotions, ordering, budgeting and corporate identity. I thoroughly enjoyed my 14 years as part of the BMW Motorrad family where I received fantastic product knowledge and attended many international and local launches. As recently as February 2018 I attended the launch of the BMW F750GS, F850GS and BMW C400X in Italy.
I was then appointed to another premium German automotive brand in Port Elizabeth as the New Vehicle Sales Manager.
Due to the restructuring of the business shortly after my arrival (7 weeks) both the Pre-owned manager and I were replaced by the role of a General Sales Manager from outside the company.
My love and passion for motorcycles has given birth to Joels Motorcycles on 1 August 2018 and I look forward to offering continued excellent service.
