MELBOURNE – April 3, 2013: BMW Group Australia is pleased to announce the appointment of Waverley BMW as the newest authorised BMW dealership in Melbourne.

Opening its doors in March 2013, Waverley BMW is the latest major metropolitan dealership to join the European brand’s comprehensive network, taking the total number of Australian BMW dealerships to 43.

BMW Group Australia managing director, Phil Horton, is delighted with the appointment.

“In 2012 we sold 18,413 new BMWs, which resulted in substantial growth to our customer car park. We need to ensure we continue to exceed the expectations of our expanding customer base by increasing our dealer footprint,” he said.

“Being the leading luxury car manufacturer - globally and locally - is about much more than how many cars we sell. Customer satisfaction is the number one priority for us, and our new partnership with the Melbourne-based and well-established Jowett Motor Group will help us achieve that.”

Waverley BMW Dealer Principal, Tony Jowett, said he was very pleased to be joining the BMW family.

“We are very excited about aligning ourselves with the world’s leading premium vehicle manufacturer, and we’re looking forward to delivering first class service to our customers,” Jowett said.

“We have a strong commitment to this partnership and have invested in state-of-the- art showroom and workshop facilities. Our team is exceptionally dedicated and is 100 per cent committed to growing the BMW brand in Victoria,” he Jowett.

Situated at 579-597 Springvale Road, Waverley BMW is strategically located to cater for Melbourne’s high growth south east corridor.
