Ken started his apprenticeship in Wellington working on Jaguar & Rolls Royce, and after a few years having worked his way up to a senior position within the company he decided it was time to head off to the UK in 1987. NZ Technicians were highly regarded & sought after in England at the time and he had the pick of a few positions but ended up employed by London’s Premier BMW Workshop – Cooper Bishopsgate. This was the beginning of many years spent learning much of what there is to know about BMW. Returning to NZ 9 years later he was employed by Jerry Clayton BMW where he quickly rose to the position of Workshop Foreman. After many years of working within Dealerships and becoming frustrated with how things worked Ken & wife Tania decided to take the plunge and run their own Independent BMW workshop. Using Ken’s extensive BMW knowledge & desire to offer great personal customer service at a fair price & Tania’s accounting & sales background they purchased Bellars Motor Works in August 2005 and haven’t looked back.
Paul completed his apprenticeship in England and spent many years working on BMW there before coming to NZ with his family about 16 years ago. With his experience Paul ended up working at Jerry Claytons as a technician where he went on to become one of the very few BMW Master Technicians and represented NZ in Germany in the finals. Paul has spent many years working on the top BMW models and his specialty is in the diagnosis of electronic faults.
Slavey completed his apprenticeship in Macedonia, and spent 12 years working in the main BMW/Mini dealership there. He immigrated to New Zealand with his wife & 2 children just over 2 years ago and we have been lucky enough to have him join our team. He brings with him a wealth of knowledge and up to date dealer experience.
