Gerrit Schoeman obtained his Bachelor of Commerce degree in Accounting in 1988 at the University of Pretoria in South Africa. Shortly after, Gerrit entered the motor industry, where he found his “home”. He spent 13 years as a Financial Controller, where after he was promoted to Dealer Principal / General Manager for a further 7 years. Gerrit found his passion in this industry and as a result of his dedication he fought to turnaround a failing dealership in Johannesburg into the National Dealer of the Year for 2010. This accomplishment was achieved in just eighteen months. In addition, the award was achieved during the global financial crisis. In 2012, Gerrit made the move to Australia for many reasons, least of which was the fantastic scuba diving sites to be explored. Today, Gerrit is a member of the Institute of Public Accountants in Australia, and with his in-depth knowledge of the motor industry is able to share industry insights, help dealerships implement better practices and improve dealer management systems. Gerrit will provide structure, guidance and education to improve processes, minimise costs, increase productivity as well as generate more dealership revenue through better customer retention. Isn’t this what every dealership needs?
