The New Rides In Town

The Bowen brand of Bowen Mazda has seen an upgrade, taking on the moniker Whitsunday Auto Group, and increasing their on-floor fleet.

However, this family owned and operated business has journeyed through many a business model, starting out as Crossley Holden, before succinctly moving into the name of Bowen Mazda in 2017.

Now, in 2023, Bowen Mazda has seen one last manifestation of the business, with HG Auto Group taking on the dealership and introducing MG Motors into the fleet, as well as increasing the on-ground team.

At the helm is Gary Brenchley, with an impressive history in vehicle sales from his time in Hervey Bay, before moving up to Bowen to take on a new role as Principal for Whitsunday Auto Group.

With him is Lindsay Galloway, a seasoned vehicle salesman, and Troy Jackson who is at the heart of the operation, having been with the business for years, and knowing Bowen like the back of his hand.

Keeping all of them in line is Lisa Read, who is the receptionist and car rental administration person, the first port of call for enquiries.

Working as a team, Whitsunday Auto Group has overseen their recent expansion with ease and confidence.

Now operating under Whitsunday Auto Group, the team have incorporated MG Motors into the mix.

They also have access to the extensive second-hand vehicle market across the entire HG Auto Group umbrella.

“Across our entire fleet stock, we have almost everything. If somebody is looking for something, we’ll search for it, and we’ll get it to their door,” said Gary, Principal for Whitsunday Auto Group.

For those looking at keeping the budget to a minimum, the offering of MG Motors is a great option.

“MG adds another dimension to our fleet, as people are looking for a particular price range of car, and someone who sees the value in a brand-new car.”

At this stage, more new offerings and brand names are soon on the cards for this dealership, meaning even more choice for Bowen and wider Whitsunday locals.

Whether you’re shopping around, or know exactly what you’re after, Whitsunday Auto Group is the dealership for you.
