Senior Management

Dealer Principal

Adam Ski - Dealer Principal

Adam Ski is the new Dealer Principal at Bendigo Toyota. Whilst he might be new to town, he is a country kid at heart with a wealth of knowledge and experience after 24 years in the car industry, starting his career in 1996 selling Toyota’s. He was born and raised in Ballarat (don’t hold that against him) before moving to Geelong for 18 years, and then eventually moving onto Melbourne.

Community engagement and involvement are high on the agenda for Adam, with plans to not only continue many of our previous sponsorships but to connect and network with a number of various groups and organisations in the region. He and his family are excited to call themselves “Bendigonians” and look forward to exploring all that city and surrounding regions have to offer.

Sales Team Sales Consultant

Patrick Hinton

Pat has made the jump from Cadet to Salesperson, after settling in perfectly as part of the New Car Sales team. 

He rates meeting new people as the best aspect of his job and says his first sale (A LC300 no less) as his most memorable moment so far. 

He likes burgers over tacos, slice over cake and dogs over cats. If given an endless gift card to one shop, it would be Flight Club. While if he was tasked with teaching someone a new skill in 10 minutes, it would be to juggle. He loves basketball and follows whatever team LeBron James is currently playing for.
