Rolls-Royce representatives (from left) South and East Asia
Pacific general manager Dan Balmer, Team McMillan director
Bob McMillan, of Auckland, and Asia Pacific regional director
Paul Harris visit Dunedin yesterday with a Phantom Series II,
imported just a month ago.
The trio, along with brand manager Neil D'Arcy-Brain, are on
a national tour to meet customers and build relationships
with prospective clients.
''They do not always have time to come to us, or live close
to the showrooms, so we make the time to come and see them,''
Mr Balmer said yesterday.
Their customers were not of a type, except for their interest
in luxury cars and the means to buy one, he said.
Fuel consumption was low on the list of a Rolls-Royce
Some bought them to achieve a personal goal, while others
''Some are tired of the world economic situation and decide
they can afford the car, so why not,'' Mr Balmer said
Last night 25 people with an interest in the brand attended a
dinner at the Dunedin Club.
