Craig Kirk

New Vehicle Consultant

I joined King Toyota in October 2017 after helping people design and building new homes. I gain the most joy when I am referred a new client by a previous purchaser. I believe that the most rewarding thing in sales is helping people realise their goals, this is often the biggest ownership choice that this person is making in their life. My family consists of 3 lively children who I love to invest time into to make them the best that they can be.

Accounts Clerk

I first joined King Toyota as a car groomer in 2015, then left to attend Otago University in early 2016, only to find myself back at Rutherford and Bond at the end of 2016 working as a driver for the service department. This pushed me into my new role as accounts clerk at the end of 2017. I’m learning a lot in this role about the industry and the values that Toyota runs by and the extra mile we all strive to go to for our customers.

Having joined Rutherford & Bond Toyota as a call centre operator in 2017 the compassion and support received from the Toyota family drives to me to exceed guest expectations.

After graduating from Victoria University with a double Major in Religious Studies & Cultural Anthropology I believe that it is important to recognise and celebrate human diversity. What better way to do this than being a Call Centre Operator for Rutherford & Bond Toyota where I can interact with, and help people from many walks of life. In my spare time you will find me behind the sewing machine creating my next project or trying out a new dinner recipe I stumbled upon on Pinterest.
