At Company of Cars we as a team get to have some sway over our future and how we interact with our customers. That’s huge and you really don’t see that anywhere else!In 2008, Nairn took what he learned working closely with franchise dealers, auto groups, and independent pre-owned dealers and established – Company of Cars. When Nairn isn’t writing about himself here in the third person or focused on his business, he is an avid athlete, CrossFit enthusiast and Martial Arts practitioner.
“Integrity is an all-the-time thing. You don’t get to pick and choose when it’s applied —you either have it, or you don’t.”I wear a lot of hats at Company of Cars. In addition to straddling the dual roles of Controller and Finance Manager, I’m the wife of the boss, daughter-in-law to my colleague, and mother to a beautiful 2-year old.
Drive fast, take chances!
I guess you could say it’s in my bones. I vividly remember spending every free moment with my Dad in our home garage working on family or friends’ cars. He made me feel that I could do anything if I just worked hard enough. Inspired by that belief, I rebuilt my first engine in grade 7 — three years before automotive class was even available. Now with 18 years under my belt, I bring that same passion to work here at Company of Cars every day.
Bibo ergo sumAs the most senior member of the Company of Cars family, I have been involved in cars all my life and while I take a serious approach to managing the service side of the business, I have been known to let my hair down (what is left of it) when I get on the race track!
I love my job because you never know what is going to happen tomorrow — you come upon different challenges, and learn new things everyday!
I’ve always been fascinated with how things worked. Like most boys, I liked toy cars and trucks when I was young, and fondly remember countless hours building, taking apart and modifying any toy vehicle I could get my hands on!
They say if you enjoy what you do, you’ll never work a day in your life. I guess you could say then — I’m pretty blessed!
I love working with cars, even more so now … that i don’t have to repair them myself!
I love working at Company of Cars because I believe we have a really great environment, a friendly supportive atmosphere and awesome products chosen by our world-class team! It’s a great place to make friends, meet new people and learn about different cultures.
Having started in collision repair before jumping to sales, I can confidently say I know cars inside — and out!
When you work with a group of people that are enthusiastic about what they do, their passion becomes contagious and makes it a pleasant place to go to and be.
Little things done well make big things happen.
From having my first job as an apprentice at Audi and Volkswagen, to being the Workshop Foreman at Porsche, Johannesburg, to my new position at Company of Cars, I have always thought I’ve been blessed with opportunities that most people would never even have dreamed of!
Never stop learning new things and improving myself – Life is like a journey, in which the final destination is not important while the scenery along the road and the mood of enjoying the scenery are of true value.
