Meet the Central Otago Motor Group Team

Scott Billman - Dealer Principal

 

Scott has over 12 years of experience under his belt in the industry, working in Automotive Distribution for 11 of those years, before returning back “home” with wife Emma, after she spent 9 years with him up in Auckland. When he married a good Southland girl it was only a matter of time before she lured him back south! When the opportunity came up to own their own business they jumped at the chance and haven’t looked back! He reckons that their competitive advantage lies in the fact they have good looking and reliable product, and that as shareholders, they work in the business every day. Scotty enjoys spending time with Emma, daughter Harper and Golden Lab Gus, who can sometimes be found in the service department or playing with Charlie! Scott is a massive motorsport fan and a huge couch expert on all things rugby and cricket.

Emma Billman - Operations Manager

Originally from Invercargill, Emma grew up spending her weekends and holidays in Queenstown with her Grandparents and parents. Emma is not a morning person but getting up at the crack of dawn to go for a waterski or being the first up the mountain for fresh tracks she will make an exception for! She is passionate about looking after COMG’s customers and ensuring their experience with the team is outstanding. Scott and Emma know the secret to success in this industry is people, people and people. Therefore they focus on building a strong team around them who enjoy their roles, want to develop their career and ultimately deliver the best customer experience. Isuzu has the product, COMG has the people and together we make a great team!

Craig Jennings - Service Manager

 

Craig has spent the past 16 in the motor industry, plying his trade as a mechanic, before progressing to aftersales manager. Originally from the UK, he spent five years living in the Bay of Islands before relocating to Central Otago, citing that missed the cold.

Away from the workshop, he spends more time in the workshop, customising Japanese motorbikes and working on his race car. Craig also has a keen interest in photography, snowboarding and hiking.

HEIDI BULLING - COMPANY ACCOUNTANT

 

Heidi has moved into the Motor Industry as an accountant after five years working in the Tourism Industry in Queenstown. Originally from Invercargill, Heidi made the permanent move to Queenstown six years ago, fitting nicely with the healthy and outdoorsy lifestyle she likes to lead. When not at work, Heidi can be found walking her brother’s dog Charlie, out on the lake water skiing or up the mountain hitting the slopes on the ski field. Charlie loves sitting up high in the D-Max tray on the back and Heidi finds towing the family boat a breeze when heading out for a ski. The reversing camera makes backing the trailer easy for her!

Craig McFarlane - Sales Consultant

He’s our car and golfing expert! Craig’s been with Central Otago motor group for 6 months and is from a golf course construction background in Queenstown. He’s a local boy at heart having grown up in Dunedin and has lived in Queenstown for over 20 years, he now considerers himself a genuine local! He spends his spare time mountain biking in summer and snowboarding in winter and loves nothing more than chucking the mountain bike on the back of an Isuzu D-Max and heading off on adventure when he is not selling them! Craig is not the hard sell salesperson you see in the movies, he loves developing a relationship with his customers first then finding the perfect car for their needs. On top of this he loves the challenge of kitting out D-Maxs with lots of accessories that make people turn their heads in the street and take a closer look. 

Bevan Mieklejohn - Finance and Sales Consultant

 

He’s our Finance and Sales Guru for Central Otago Motor Group (COMG). Originally from Rotorua, Bevan’s lived all over the place including Canada, Queenstown and most recently, Queensland’s Sunshine Coast before deciding to settle here in Cromwell. He lives in Cromwell with his wife Ange, son Erik and their Border Collie, Molly. They enjoy getting out and about and exploring Central Otago’s beautiful backyard, preferably via mountain bike! He’s a huge car fanatic and it runs in the family; one of Erik’s favourite places to hang out is Cromwell’s Highlands Motorsport Park. Bevan finds his role very rewarding right from the start where he helps find the best solution to a customer’s vehicle needs, to the end when they drive away with a grin a mile wide. Plus, he loves catching up when they come back for routine maintenance. He believes COMG has the added bonus of a great culture and vibe in the workplace where they all get stuck in, help each other out and have a lot of fun along the way. Bevan’s passionate about Isuzu and believes that the range has something to fit everyone’s needs here in Central Otago, why would you need to look anywhere else? Chances are he has the perfect vehicle right here waiting for you.
