Drive your dream with Bowater Hyundai

Pinnacle Programme

Developing Potential in young New Zealanders.

The Pinnacle programme is a unique scholarship, backed by Hyundai New Zealand, which provides talented young New Zealanders with the foundations for success.

Pinnacle will apply proven principles across all area of endeavor, including, but not limited, to art, sport, science and business. It will provide a unique scholarship experience, allowing participants to experience two of New Zealand's prominent leadership programmes - Spirit of Adventure Trust and Outward Bound, as well as high performance workshops from some of New Zealand's leading service providers.

Access to personal mentors will be utilised to lay successful foundations for the future of New Zealand's emerging talents.

There are some really impressive examples of Hyundai New Zealand's support at work, on an even greater scale than the Pinnacle Programme, which the company established in 2005. The new programme gave the company an opportunity to make a further contribution to New Zealand's sports by helping to prepare future international champions. The Pinnacle Programme was described as: ‘a New Zealand sports mentor organisation, backed by Hyundai, which provides young athletes with a range of professional and personal skills to help them reach world-best status’.

But it wasn’t enough: Hyundai wanted to help even more young kiwis to achieve their dreams.

So our once little programme, called Pinnacle, has grown up. Now it will provide support and development across more than just sports: It will cover the arts, science, music, business and much, much more. Pinnacle will help realise the raw potential in many New Zealanders so that we can continue to help the development of the very best world class leaders, to support future generations to come.

Daryl Pritchard. A depth of experience & the voice of reason.

Daryl has been in the car industry for a long time, ever since he started as an apprentice mechanic for the Post Office's Workshop in Wellington, where he grew up.

We are fortunate to have him, and all of his varied vehicle industry experience, with us at Bowater Hyundai since 2010. He has seen the Hyundai brand go from strength to strength and has a depth of technical knowledge of the evolution of the range of vehicles. 

Daryl lives in Stoke with his wife, they have four grown children living as far afield as Wellington and Sydney. A proud supporter of the Hurricanes and the Lions, Daryl maintains his strong connection to the city he grew up in.

He is a strong believer in the Bowater Motor Group philosophy of giving back to the community and thrives on "the strong focus of ethical business within the company". As such Daryl is a strong advocate for the special relationships that Bowater Hyundai has built with community partners such as Big Brothers Big Sisters and Victory Boxing.

Daryl is an enthusiastic fisherman and says his lack of results has failed to deter him from his enthusiasm. Click here to contact Daryl.
