    A word from our team

    “My foot in the door was doing work experience in Year 10. Working closely with the spare parts team for a week, it opened the opportunity for a spare parts apprenticeship, which I took the following year. Doing my apprenticeship taught me the core fundamental skills of working within a motorcycle dealership.
    I have been able to work in the workshop, on the retail floor, in a leadership role, assist with marketing and now I’m responsible for the spare parts stock across all dealerships as a Category Manager. Peter Stevens has allowed me to align my profession with my passion and help build both. From attending Ride Days, Demo days, Dealer Conferences across Australia it has opened a world of opportunities”
