New GM at Ter­rain Tamer

NZ4WD - - NEWS -

Sig­nal­ing a strong com­mit­ment to pre­serv­ing the fam­i­ly­owned and op­er­ated her­itage of the Aus­tralian 4WD spare parts com­pany, Brent Hutchin­son has been ap­pointed the new Gen­eral Man­ager of Aus­tralian 4WD spare parts spe­cial­ist, Ter­rain Tamer. The move has the full sup­port of both re­cently re­tired for­mer Gen­eral Man­ager, Jim Dean, and Brent’s fa­ther and com­pany co-founder, Frank Hutchin­son. “It is an hon­our to fol­low in the foot­steps of two great men­tors, Jim and Frank, as I em­brace this new lead­er­ship role,” Brent Hutchi­son said in Septem­ber. “We are in the for­tu­nate po­si­tion to have mem­bers of our se­nior man­age­ment team who are rea­son­ably young, but all have over 20 years’ ex­pe­ri­ence with the com­pany – some­thing that only oc­curs when you train and pro­mote from within. We have all ben­e­fited im­mensely from many years of men­tor­ing from the best brains in the busi­ness.” Brent comes to the role with a Bach­e­lor of Com­merce and an MBA. He has worked for 18 years in var­i­ous roles across the com­pany, in­clud­ing three years in man­u­fac­tur­ing and ware­hous­ing, three years in sales, and most no­tably, the past 12 years as Mar­ket­ing Man­ager. In re­cent years, Brent and the team have over­seen ex­ten­sive ex­pan­sion of the com­pany’s five in­ter­na­tional branches, grow­ing a global distri­bu­tion net­work to over 80 coun­tries. Next year marks the com­pany’s 50-year an­niver­sary, which Brent says is a per­fect op­por­tu­nity to pause and cel­e­brate their col­lec­tive im­pact within the in­dus­try.
