Richard van den Engel

CEO

I was born into the car industry and despite spending some time working in architecture and accounting in Auckland, Hong Kong and London, I was drawn back to the Waikato and the automotive world in 2012. In late 2018 I moved into the Toyota/ Lexus business and it’s a real privilege being part of New Zealand’s largest vehicle brand and delivering on its unrivalled customer experience. I look forward to meeting all our customers soon and if I can be of any service please just get in touch on the links above.

I have been in the automotive industry for the past 17 years and have worked for a number of different brands. Having worked for Toyota for a number of years in the UK it was an easy choice to move back to the brand. High level of customer service and a great experience are some of the things I pride myself on.

I started selling motor vehicles in the late 1980’s and have had more than 35 years in the retail vehicle sector. I also ran my own successful motor vehicle business for 14 years. I moved into real estate sales for a number of years, but now have settled back into New Vehicle Sales with Waikato Toyota. I enjoy the popular brand and especially the reliability of our franchise product.

I enjoy cars - the comfort, reliability and looks of Toyota appeal to me. I have sold cars for five years and enjoy the safety and convenience of modern cars as well as how fast they improve.
