Ingham Group is celebrating double success in the Hyundai NZ 2023 Business Manager of the Year competition after its staff took out two titles. 

Liezel Jooste, business manager at Ingham Hamilton, won the group one section of the contest, while Catriona (Cat) McPhee, from Ingham Great Lake – Hyundai Taupo, claimed the group two crown.

The annual awards organised by Hyundai NZ recognise individuals who have demonstrated dedication, strategic vision and a commitment to excellence when helping consumers with their automotive financing requirements. 

McPhee has now won a business manager of the year gong from the marque for three years in a row and says she is thrilled to complete a hat-trick of honours.

“It reflects the collaborative efforts of our team and validates the hard work and dedication that goes into securing every finance deal, ensuring our customers receive the best possible solutions tailored to their needs,” she adds 

Jooste says it is exciting to be recognised for her contributions to the Hamilton dealership’s finance operations. 

“For me, it’s about building trust and ensuring our customers feel confident in their financial decisions,” she explains. “We create financial solutions that empower them to drive away in their dream vehicles.” 

Trent Ingham, managing director of Ingham Group, notes the company is proud of the achievements of Jooste and McPhee. “They are both huge talents in the industry and we’re delighted to see they have been rewarded for their continued success and dedication.”
