Myles Cartwright joined the Black Toyota family fresh out of Grade 12 in 1996, and though he’s left the nest during the ensuing years to pursue other goals, he has always found his way back to the business for which he became the Roma Branch Manager in June this year.
After joining the team as a junior in the parts division, Mr Cartwight’s passion for the industry and his excellent rapport with clients saw him rise through the ranks, and he was soon named Roma Parts Manager, a position he held for three years.
He left the business to chase his other dream of playing representative level Rugby League with his brother Matthew when they were selected by Tweed Heads in 2004.
“After that adventure I returned as a sales rep in 2006, during which time I met my wife Jenny, we stayed in Roma until 2011, before heading to Brisbane for the last five and half years,” Mr Cartwight said.
“Earlier this year I bumped into Black Toyota General Manager Russell Edwards and we got to talking about me coming back. He got Black’s Dealer Principal and Equity Partner Damian Purcell to give me a call and I returned in my current role this month.
“It’s a great place for Jenny and I to raise our four children Sienna, Rowan, Archer and Gypsy, everywhere you go people always so hello and have a smile on their face.”
He said the appeal of Black Toyota is that the staff genuinely care about their customers, while heavily supporting the local community.
“We employ 25 local people and their training and development around the Toyota product is of the highest priority to Black Toyota so we can consolidate our future.
“We sponsor a lot of different events and organisations in Roma including: Roma PCYC, Careflight, Anglicare, Lifeflight, QMDC and the Wallumbilla Surat Red Bulls which is the local league team.”
Mr Cartwright said those in the market for a new vehicle should come and browse the great end of financial year deals currently available at the branch.
“The Toyota Prado GXL is very popular in the region, and is a great option for people living in town or those on-property in need of a good rugged vehicle.”
