The time has come…
I’m handing over the reins of Kelly’s Automotive to a younger model. Business as usual, the team Sue, Willy & Liz will be here to make sure you continue to get the great service “Kelly’s Auto” is famous for. Stefan & Jacques are looking forward to meeting you all, they start bright and early on Monday 13th August. I will be working with them for a couple of weeks so pop in and say goodbye to me and hi to them. Before you ask, I have no plans other than heading to Raro and doing a little fishing… Thank you all for you support and friendship over the years, I have enjoyed seeing “Kelly’s Auto” become one of Whangarei’s leading automotive workshops. I look forward to seeing you all out and about in Whangarei as I enjoy the new role…
