HONDA Australia has made key personnel changes, including the appointment of Carolyn McMahon as vice president of Honda Australia and director of Honda New Zealand.

This promotion comes after Ms McMahon has spent the past seven years in the role of director at Honda Australia.

In 2017 she became Honda Australia’s first female director and becomes the first person to hold the dual titles of Honda Australia vice president and Honda New Zealand director.

Ms McMahon said: “I am honoured to take on this new and exciting position as vice president of Honda Australia.

“We have been working closely with our Honda colleagues in New Zealand for some time and this appointment as director of Honda New Zealand will only strengthen those connections and work efficiencies across our Agency structure and business operations.”

Honda said Ms McMahon has an incredible 28-year history with the company across various senior leadership roles and continues to pioneer women’s advocacy and leadership programs.

Supporting her is Robert Thorp who has returned to Honda Australia as general manager of Automotive after a short time away from Honda while serving as CEO of automotive digital retailing company iMotor.

Mr Thorp was previously with Honda Australia for 12 years, where he held senior leadership roles within the business services, customer experience and customer network divisions.

In addition to these changes, Honda Australia general manager of business services Nicholas Beattie has been appointed as company secretary to support the board of directors and the rest of the senior leadership team.
