E-mail: lcooke@miles.co.nz

Hi I'm Laurence,

I joined sales team at Miles Toyota in 2011. It’s a role that I find challenging and rewarding. I am proud of the product we offer and the brand we represent, but I think that it is our core value of Respect for People that makes us successful.

In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family, skiing, running marathons and operating a part-time business providing Allen Carr’s Easyway to Stop Smoking seminars.

I would be happy to sit down with you and explore the options available, so that you can make a well informed decision for your next vehicle purchase.

E-mail: bleung@miles.co.nz

Hello there, I’m Barry.

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.

Having grown up in Darfield, I'm a country man at heart. Before joining the Miles Toyota team in December 2013, I spent time in Brisbane where I was involved in the sale of Hyundai, Mitsubishi, Holden and Subaru vehicles. This has given me excellent experience in the vehicles that are currently available on today's market, and a genuine respect for the Toyota vehicles that I am involved with today.

I look forward to meeting you soon and introducing you to your next vehicle.
