The Ateco Group, Australia’s largest independently-owned automotive distribution company, has appointed Paula Miller to the role of General Manager of Network Development.
Paula comes to the Ateco Group from Toyota and Lexus, where she was Senior Manager of Franchise Development.
“We’re delighted to welcome Paula to the Ateco Group,” said the group’s Managing Director, Roger Zagorski.
“A strong, profitable and collaborative dealer network is a critical component of success of any brand, so we’re looking forward to engaging Paula’s knowledge and experience to further develop our dealer networks in support of the significant growth aspirations for our LDV, RAM, and Maserati brands.”
During her 20+ years with Toyota, Paula also held senior positions in dealer development, sales and distribution.
“I’m looking forward to building on the growth of the Ateco Group and the diverse brands it represents, “said Paula. “The automotive dealer model as well as the broader auto industry continue to change and develop, and I’m looking forward to working with the Group’s dealer networks to tackle some of the challenges and to capitalise on many opportunities presented by the current market.”
Based in a $45 million facility in Lidcombe, Sydney, the Ateco Group oversees the distribution of Maserati in Australia, New Zealand and South Africa; LDV in Australia; RAM trucks in Australia and New Zealand; and is the distributor for Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) in New Zealand.
