Drive Group has recently announced its official launch in New Zealand, marking a significant milestone in its global growth strategy. This first New Zealand site is through a partnership with AA Insurance.

“We are thrilled to bring Drive Group to New Zealand” said Steve Bubulj, Drive Group Founder and CEO. “Dave Marino, our Group Strategy Officer and Peter Lambeth our International Operations Manager will oversee the business in New Zealand, bringing a wealth of experience and a clear vision for the future.”

 “Partnering with AA Insurance allows us to leverage their commitment to innovation and customer care in the New Zealand market,” said Marino. “Together, we aim to deliver long-term value to the industry through high quality repairs, managing increased demand and reducing turnaround times for our customers.”

The Company will operate as Drive Group New Zealand, a separate entity to the Australian business, with the first site set to open in East Tamaki.

As Drive Group embarks on its New Zealand operations, it says the Australian Support Centre will ensure a smooth and efficient integration process. “We will be using the same systems and processes to support recruitment, HR, IT, finance, payroll, and safety” said Tricia Evans, HR Director. “This way, the New Zealand team will be provided with the same level of support and given access to the same programs and opportunities as our Australian team.”

Drive Group New Zealand’s first site opens its doors in the North Island later this year.
