  • Excellent opportunity to join AHG NZ in a senior capacity
  • Exceptional uncapped financial rewards for high achievers
  • Iconic and prominent sites with great traffic flow and presence

  • Automotive Holdings Group (AHG) is Australasia's largest automotive retailer with operations in Auckland, Western Australia, New South Wales, Queensland and Victoria. With more than 180 franchises across Australia and New Zealand, AHG lead this dynamic and fast paced industry.

    We're currently seeking TWO experienced Dealer Principals to lead North Harbour Ford and North Harbour Mazda on Auckland's North Shore.

    Previously run as a dual-franchise dealership, these sought-after roles have become available due to an exciting internal promotion; the dealership’s previous Dealer Principal has been promoted to Country Manager and is now leading the AHG NZ dealership group!

    The move to split these dealerships into standalone operations presents a once in a lifetime opportunity for experienced automotive professionals to make their mark in New Zealand and take an already successful business to the next level. This is your chance to shine.

    It’s a particularly exciting time to join the businesses.

    AHG Dealer Principals are known for their sharp commercial acumen and exceptional leadership abilities. Alongside support from the wider dealership network, our Dealer Principals have the skill set to lead their teams to success, month after month.

    We're looking for TWO superstars with proven track records (5+ years experience) of driving a strong and professional sales culture in a high volume dealership. Experience supporting a busy fleet department is desirable.

    The ideal candidates will have a passion for the Ford or Mazda brands and will state their respective positions in their applications.

    The successful applicants will also be able to demonstrate their ability to:
    • Support a culture that encourages and promotes excellence, strong sales performance, professionalism, teamwork, and accountability;
    • Build and maintain strong relationships with Manufacturers, the industry, and the Group;
    • Drive high performance and consistently overachieve;
    • Support, develop and implement processes and practices that ensure customer and client expectations are exceeded;
    • Develop and lead strategic initiatives to grow the business and increase market share; and
    • Manage and maintain the profitable and efficient operation of all aspects of the business through P&L, balance sheet and KPI's.
    Internal applicants are encouraged to apply.

    An excellent remuneration package with uncapped earning potential is on offer plus access to a range of employee benefits including discounted health insurance, vehicle purchase and servicing, charity leave days and professional development/study assistance where relevant.
