Terri Brown, Customer Service Manager

Terri was employed by VroomVroomVroom in March 2007 and has grown with the department from the one person, one day per week to a team that is in four counties and around 12 staff. Previously, she has had 16 years with Hertz car rental – so her background is “on the ground” with the busy Brisbane and Sydney airport locations. VroomVroomVroom provide never ending opportunities across a variety of workspaces, and it has allowed me to develop a role unique, diverse and non-typical. Our customers 'enquiries come from renters, suppliers, depot staff, reservations staff, supplier customer service teams, and management. 

This variety makes for a day that never repeats itself. Terri lives on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland, and nothing brings more happiness to her than being with my husband, and their seven kids.
