Cairns, QLD, Australia – (News4us.com) September 17, 2012
The Managing Director and Dealer Principal of Pacific Toyota Cairns, Greg Eastment and John Doolan, current General Manager of Parry Nissan Townsville have joined forces through their family companies as major shareholders in a new venture.
Together they have formed NQ Auto Group Pty Ltd to purchase Townsville’s Parry Nissan that operates Nissan, Suzuki and Renault franchises.
According to Mr Eastment, settlement took place on 31 August for the purchase of Parry Nissan that was founded in 1979 by the Parry Family.
“I am pleased to announce that my fellow shareholder, John Doolan who has been employed by Parry Nissan for the last 16 years, most recently in the position of General Manager, will assume the role of Dealer Principal.
“Parry Nissan is a well respected business in Townsville and the far north. Operating from its modern premises at 515-593 Sturt Street it currently employs 60 people.”
According to Mr Eastment, the purchase of the freehold Sturt Street property formed part of the sale.
Greg Eastment said he was extremely pleased to have secured such a well respected business in a vibrant city such as Townsville.
“I believe that Townsville is probably the strongest and most stable provincial centre north of Brisbane. With significant investment happening in and around the centre this trend is set to continue into the future.
“Under the control of a very experienced dealer principal in John Doolan and with the support of Parry Nissan’s long serving staff, we feel optimistic that the business will continue to thrive as it had under the Parry Family,” he said.
