Lucas Martin at helm of new dealership

After four short years of employment at Winger Motors in Auckland, Lucas began his automotive journey selling vehicles, then managing a team of sales executives, and now he’s been entrusted with operating the brand new Winger Motors Subaru dealership.

“I’m passionate about the Subaru brand and am confident in leading and motivating the team at Winger Motors East Auckland,” says Lucas.

Having proven his superior sales skills early on, Wayne Leach, Director of Winger Motors, had no doubt Lucas was the right man for the job.

“Lucas is passionate about the Subaru brand and will, without a doubt, provide excellent customer service for our Subaru customers. His Subaru knowledge is second-to-none, and East Auckland Subaru owners are in great hands with Lucas at the helm.”

Still early days since the opening on Friday 4 February, Lucas has already hit the ground running with strong vehicle sales and service numbers.

“The leadership skills I gained at St Paul’s, particularly as Head Boy, has fast-tracked me into a career I love. Sales and management are all about communicating effectively and understanding people. Nearly 10 years later, I still appreciate the community that supported me throughout my time at St Paul’s, and I accredit them for the opportunities I am fortunate to have today.”
