Always here to help out
It’s all about the people
Malaga Malii Findlay Siania’s biggest regret about walking away from his job is not getting to interact with members of the Porirua community on a daily basis any more.
The wholesaler and buyer for Capital City Motors has taken redundancy after 13 years with the company.
He says he enjoyed his job but made a snap decision after restructuring moves were announced.
‘‘I am going to miss it, especially dealing with the community and schools, touching base with regular clients and the public.’’
Findlay is going to be a house dad for a few weeks but expects to test out the job market soon. He does not know if it will be another job within the car industry.
The ‘‘mini break’’ will allow him to focus attention on his children.
In 2008 Mr Siania coached a Pacific Island team – made up predominantly of Porirua-based players – to the semifinals of the Women’s Rugby League World Cup in Australia.
He still has to decide whether putting another team together for this year’s tournament in England is possible.
His main motivation for contacting KapiMana News was to assure his long-term clients from Capital City Motors that he is still available to offer advice, any time, when it comes to buying vehicles.
He says this is especially pertinent to those in the Samoan community that speak little or no English.
‘‘I’ve built up a lot of trust with people in Porirua and want them to know they can still contact me; I’m glad to help out any way I can. I guess this is a chance to thank everyone, past and present, that I’ve dealt with over the years.’’
Mr Siania is available on 027 257 3386.
Advice available: Findlay Siania may be no longer an employee at Capital City Motors but he wants people to know he is still contactable for advice when buying motor vehicles.
