Simon Jackson | New Vehicle Manager

Mobile: 027 526 2260

I have been with Miles Toyota since 2005 and it is a great company to work for! I just love doing what I do. I enjoy dealing with people and a major part of my role is to make sure my team are looking after our customers motoring needs.

Barry Leung | Fleet Sales Consultant

Mobile: 022 368 1008

Hello there, I’m Barry and I speak both English and Cantonese.

I am really thrilled and feel privileged to be part of the award winning dealership, Miles Toyota.

Over the last two decades, I have had an awesome time working in the banking industry. The most satisfying part was helping customers realise their dream of owning their own dream home or making a positive difference with their financial situations.

Being with Miles Toyota, my passion and commitment continues to assist you to make the right decision to purchase your exact motor vehicle for your individual lifestyle. It is all about you and your motoring needs so it’s really imperative for me to ensure you are totally happy with your buying decision.

I am a car-enthusiast and perfectionist (I have owned over 35 cars to date) but accordingly to my wife, 'car enthusiast' is not exactly how she would describe me!
Other interests are playing tennis, fishing, taking road trips, music, properties and spending quality time with friends and family.

I’m really excited to be here and looking forward to have a chat with you over a cuppa.

Hi, Tania Taylor Operations Manager for Miles Toyota.

Under my portfolio is the financial reporting for our Miles Group branches. I am also proud to be part of a management team that supports and continually works towards achieving the BEST. Working for the group for a good number of years, each day has given me a different challenge ensuring that I never fail to sleep!

Being a working mother of two children - my daughter, Jaimee, and my son, Jackson - ensures that my time management needs to be up to scratch at all times. Having good support outside of work and a very understanding husband and children has allowed me to travel regularly with my job working from my North Island sites on average one in every three weeks.

The friendships and relationships that I have been lucky to be part of over the years and working with a team of people supporting them each to succeed in their desired roles has made me proud to be part of Miles Toyota and gets me through the challenges presented to see the next one succeed.
