MG Motor continues Queensland growth, with new strategic appointment



 
  • MG Motor Australia appoints Anthony Murray as Regional Sales Manager for Queensland, overseeing dealership support, expansion sales and strategy
  • Three Queensland dealerships launched in 2017, with more to come 
Australia, 5 March 2018: MG Motor Australia today announces the appointment of Anthony Murray to the role of Regional Sales Manager for Queensland.
 
Based in Brisbane, Anthony will be responsible for dealer support, expansion, and sales growth, with a portfolio for the state of Queensland. With three established dealerships across the state – Brisbane MG, Southside MG, and Redcliffe MG – and more to come in 2018, Queensland is a key growth market for MG Motor Australia.
 
Danny Lenartic, Senior Manager, MG Motor Australia, said: “As we continue to grow our footprint, Anthony will play a key part in strengthening our sales and resourcing, in addition to supporting dealerships in maximising MG3, MG6 PLUS, MG GS and MG ZS sales.”
 
The MG ZS was launched in Australia at the end of 2017, with customer deliveries already arriving. The second SUV from the marque, it enters an increasingly popular segment for Australians, with 2017 the first full year that SUV sales exceeded Passenger Car sales.
 
“With a 39.2% share of the total market, SUV sales are on an upward trajectory,” said Danny. “The MG ZS offers quality, style and performance – all with a trusted 7-years unlimited kilometre warranty and roadside assistance starting from just $21,990 drive away – we expect to see strong growth throughout the year, with Anthony aiding us in this focus for Queensland.”
 
Anthony Murray said of his appointment: “I’m delighted to be joining the team at MG Motor Australia. I’ve watched the marque go from strength-to-strength in a short amount of time, with its legendary heritage, a versatile and affordable product range, as well as the backing of SAIC Motor’s innovative technology. I look forward supporting our dealer network in bringing Queenslanders across the state the opportunity to own an MG.”
 
Anthony has worked in the automotive industry for 16 years, highly experienced in roles at both retail and brand level. Anthony’s appointment to Regional Sales Manager is effective immediately.
