Meet the Team
At Northpoint Toyota we are committed to creating memorable experiences - It's 'The Northpoint Way'!
Robert Hoey - Owner
Robert formed Northpoint Toyota in 1984, a business that was very different from today. He began with 20 employees selling 30 vehicles per month from one location. Robert has achieved much since those times including a stint as board member for Port Power FC. Today Robert enjoys golf, travelling and spending time with his grand children. He is still as passionate about Northpoint as he was over 30 years ago.
