Ash Hames

Ash Hames

Director

I've been working on cars for nearly twenty-five years now & I still have a real passion for the automotive industry. Cars and the technology in them are constantly changing so there's always something new to learn and keep me motivated.
I also have a passion for customer service. I know that bringing your vehicle to the workshop for mechanical repairs and service can be an experience that all too often leaves you feeling "ripped off". I'll make sure you never feel that way after visiting Anzac Automotive. We'll do our best to give you all the information you need to make the right decision for you and your vehicle. We will give you FREE and honest advice and we guarantee our workmanship. If you're not happy with any aspect of our service, let me know. I give you my personal assurance that we will put it right.

Jeff Clark

Jeff joined Anzac Automotive in October 2012. Jeff comes from the far north where he completed his apprenticeship in early 2012. He has made the move to Auckland to gain experience on a wider variety of vehicles and is enjoying the move to a well-resourced workshop.

Jeff is a keen sailor and has spent a number of years working locally and around the world including working for Oracle in their first defense of the America's cup.

Yonko Nikilov

Yonko Nikolov

BMW & Mercedes Specialist

Yonko joined our team in 2018 from Bulgaria. When it comes to BMWs and Mercedes, he has an awe-inspiring depth of knowledge. He has spent his entire career working on BMWs and Mercedes and is passionate about providing efficient, accurate and high-quality service. His skill is second to none, able to diagnose BMW specific issues that other mechanics cannot, meaning he can tackle repairs in the correct order to create both efficiency and safety. He regularly saves our clients money and the inconvenience of a breakdown by spotting things now that could become a problem later. When he is not fixing BMWs you can find him playing ice hockey with his son, or mountain biking the great outdoors.
