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.

General Sales Manager

I have spent my entire career in the Automotive Industry, starting as an apprentice mechanic and working my way through various Service, Sales and Management roles, both in New Zealand and overseas. When making the move from Auckland to the Waikato there was no other choice for me than the Ebbett Group. The firm ethical values of the business combined with the trusted quality and customer first focus of Toyota were a perfect match. I look forward to seeing you in the showroom soon.

I have been in the automotive industry for the past 17 years and have worked for a number of different brands.

Sales Consultant

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. Having travelled most of the world, I try to broaden my interests by finding out about anything novel, which could lead to a cool new hobby.
