Meet our Team – Quayside Motors
JASON JOLLEY – SALES MANAGER (HOLDEN, MITSUBISHI)
Jason definitely lives up to his name as the Jolley-est of our Lismore dealership. Having been with the dealership since ’96, it’s safe to say he knows the place inside and out. Jason actually started out as a carpenter/joiner before switching to cars and never looking back! You’ll probably catch him on his jetski, out on the water on his days off – still waiting for our invite Jase!
ROBERT DAVY – PARTS MANAGER LISMORE & BALLINA
Robert is another long-termer here at Quayside having been at the dealership since 1991! He’s an avid arcade game collector and project car tinkerer. Robert admitted that he was recently banned from eBay by his wife Suzanne due to the excessive volumes of deliveries that were turning up on his doorstep, so now he gets his purchases delivered to work and smuggles them home in his Holden. Don’t worry Robert, your secret is safe here.
WAYNE DOREY – SALES CONSULTANT – BALLINA
Wayne is a born and bred Ballina bloke who traded in the Macadamia farm life for dealership life – and loves it! He’s into his MotoX, freestyle racing and stunts. Fun fact – Wayne spoke German before he spoke English – ja, no joke!
STEPHEN MCQUEEN – SERVICE ADVISOR – BALLINA
From Guardsman in the British Army to the Guardsman of our service desk, Stephen is one of the friendly faces you’ll see in our Ballina service department. Known as “Oily Minogue” during his time in the Scot’s Guard, Stephen has dabbled in cheffing, telecommunications, and then joined the Quayside Motors Team. With a name like McQueen, he was destined to be in cars, and he’s a great asset to our service team!
ROB HOWARD – SERVICE ADVISOR – BALLINA
Rob is our scuba diving, down-hill mountain biking, extreme sport loving service advisor at Ballina. He cruised into our life after managing cruise ships in South East Asia and has been our Rob of all Trades at the dealership for the past two years. Ask him about his favourite diving spots next time you’re in for a service!
TIM BAARTZ – SALES CONSULTANT – BALLINA
Our biggest rev head! Tim could talk for hours about Holdens. Originally starting out as one of our detailers, Tim went through a cadetship with us and now helps our customers meet the car of their dreams. Raised in Murwillumbah Tim is one of eleven kids! He’s also an avid gamer x project car tinkerer. Fun fact – Tim once wore a hat for six years straight. The reason? We still don’t know.
HARLEY THISTLETON – SALES CONSULTANT (HOLDEN) – LISMORE
Harley is one of our Holden sales consultants and is pleased to be working for a brand he’s passionate about! His life basically revolves around cars, working the dealership life and then racing speedway straight from work on a Saturday! Originally from Clunes and now in Tregeagle, you might catch him out waterskiing on a Sunday so give him a wave!
KEIRA WALTERS – COURIER
Our bubbly Keira is completely new to the motor industry and is thoroughly enjoying learning the ropes at Quayside Motors. A creative type with a flair for art, Keira’s first job was drawing tattoos for Sharky’s Tattoo in Byron! Keira is our friendly courier, looking after service customers and shuttling bits and pieces between the three sites.
NATHAN WALMSLEY – SALES CONSULTANT – LISMORE
Nathan is one of our newest consultants, looking after Hyundai, Subaru and Suzuki at our Lismore dealership. Originally from Leeds, Nathan is a qualified nutritionist and ex-professional rugby league player. He’s now playing locally for Evan’s Head, and also in the PlayStation game Rugby League Live 2 since 2012.
FRANKIE VANZ – SALES CONSULTANT (MITSUBISHI) – LISMORE
We’re pretty envious of Frankie’s life so far. The Lismore local has been fortunate enough to have travelled the world from a young age, experiencing different cultures and reliving historical moments. When he’s not at work helping customers into their new Mitsubishi, he’s helping his Dad Frank with his fundraising efforts in the local community.
MIRO BRADFORD – FLEET SOLUTIONS SPECIALIST
Miro is our Jack-of-all-trades. When he’s not helping our local business customers with their fleet requirements, he’s building a house from a shipping container, a motorbike from scratch, or a stable for his miniature ponies – Troy, Troy Jnr and Tina. Miro loves the flexibility of his role, and getting out and about in the community.
JARAD SELLER – SALES CONSULTANT – LISMORE
Jarad’s been a team member since 2012 and you’ll find him in our Hyundai showroom, chilling with the i30s and Tucsons. Previously to working at Quayside Motors, Jarad was a complaint resolutions specialist for Telstra so, aside from cars, he also knows his way around telecommunications issues and internet faults. One of his most memorable callers was the Gladiator himself Russell Crowe!
LISA DAWES – VEHICLE PROTECTION SPECIALIST – LISMORE
Lisa’s the girl who will tell you all about how to keep your new vehicle protected from anything life throws at it. Lisa loves the social aspect of her job, chatting to customers and the great team at Quayside. When she’s not at work talking tint and paint protection, Lisa enjoys exploring the local waterfalls with her daughter.
