NEW Vehicle Sales Consultant Bill Webb has recently joined the sales team at Bill Robertson Toyota.

Here's Bill's story:

"In 1972, my parents made the decision to leave our country of birth, Scotland and settle in Gladstone. My father was a tool maker by trade and like most people in Gladstone was employed by QAL, my mother later became a nurse at the Gladstone Hospital. For our family, adapting to the culture change of living in Gladstone was easy, the wonderful climate and the easygoing nature of the local people helped us settle in.

"In 1984, I turned professional in golf and became a member of the Australian Professional Golf Association, in which I am still a member, my career in golf as a player had mixed results, and I have no regrets as my career as a professional has taken me to many parts of the world, UK, Europe, USA and all over our marvellous country. My life as a golf teacher started in Mackay and my thirst to learn to be a great teacher took me to Europe and the UK where I attended European and British PGA coaching summits.

"That's where I mixed and learned from some of the great golf teachers of the world such as Bob Torrence, David Leadbetter and Hank Haney.

"When first arriving here people often said you only go to Gladstone for the work, not to live there, how wrong a statement there ever was. Our city has grown so much and now has such diverse culture, great sporting facilities, parks, beaches, rivers, coastal islands and the magnificent Awoonga Dam. Blessed with three great children in Danielle, Will and Felicity they love life here in Gladstone being involved in football, dancing, and gymnastics and school and Danielle attending her first year in university, degrees in creative industries and teaching.

"Bill Robertson Toyota has provided me with a new exciting challenge, with a fantastic well-stocked new facility at 84 Hanson Rd. The principal owner James and his staff have been very supportive and welcoming. Bill Robertson Toyota has a great reputation in looking after the local people and our community, I feel privileged to be part of such a great team."
