I have been in the Automotive Industry for 45 years of which 13 years I have spent with the team at Mexteds.

It has been great to be involved with a dealership that has had a reputation for servicing its customers to a high standard for over 80 years.

When not at work I can be found repairing or riding my collection of motorcycles or getting involved with some sort of D.I.Y. project.

I was born in The Netherlands but I am proud to have grown up as a Kiwi in sunny Nelson.

For as long as I can remember my passion has been cars, so after finishing my studies I jumped at the opportunity to work in the automotive industry.

I'm lucky to work with the team here at Mexted Motors and strongly believe we offer the best service in the Lower North Island if not all of New Zealand.

After 6 years as a second hand dealer and pawnbroker, my friends and family were pleased to see me go down the straight and narrow and get an honest job as a car dealer. I’ve been fortunate enough to interact with people from all walks of life and I really enjoy helping people find what is best for themselves.

I suffer from a rare condition where I lose a hair from my head for every person that I give excellent customer service. When I’m not working I enjoy spending time with my girlfriend and taking our dog for walks around Johnsonville and up Mount Kaukau.

Hi, My name is Tayla,
I’ve been in the automotive industry for a couple of years now working at a few different workshops and studying automotive myself!
I’ve been with the Mexted team for about a year and have really found my home here everyone is so supportive, and they are a great team to work with.
I have been lucky enough to have grown up around cars as my dad owns a few cool old cars which has driven a very expensive car habit for me!
In my spare time I’m often found at home working away on my Subarus- I know, I chose the dark side!

I’m a Mitsubishi master technician and have been at Mexted Motors since 2007. I Have worked my way up through the ranks from an apprentice to foreman.
I have a strong passion for anything Mitsubishi and anything automotive, I have a collection of classic Mitsubishis ranging from a Lancer 2 door GSR rally car (Which you can find alongside my Final Edition Evolution in the Mexted showroom) to Mitsubishis old faithful l200/l300s. I live in Whitby with my family and on the weekends you will find me at whatever car show is on.
