In the late 1970s BMW NA established its first office in the Western Region, Marina del Rey. In 2000 the Group decided to move to Ontario, finally finding its current home in January 2015 in Newbury Park.
Opened in January 2015, this state-of-the-art facility is located in the northeast part of Newbury Park and within the Designworks building.
Nestled in picturesque Thousand Oaks, the Newbury Park facility is within miles of the Santa Monica Mountains and just a quick drive through the canyons to the beautiful beaches of Malibu. The location is just a one hour drive from downtown Los Angeles and close to local shops, restaurants and sports facilities.
The glass-fronted building features two floors with an open office floor plan, 3 conference rooms for meetings, a generously proportioned kitchen and ample coffee locations.
The Western Region office is responsible for sales and marketing, aftersales and Center Development.
The team of roughly around 100 associates handle approximately 84 dealerships plus satellite stores for a region that covers the US from Colorado to Hawaii and includes 13 states.
Center Development supports continued BMW and MINI retailer growth, the required presentation of our brand standards and compliance with BMW Group Corporate Identify, and attaining our customer satisfaction goals.
In addition Newbury Park is responsible for MINI sales/aftersales/market coordination/regional business management, regional product trainers (BMW and MINI).
The Area Manager in the Newbury Park offices plays a pivotal role in the overall sales success of BMW in the US.
The Western Region’s smaller team structure fosters a start-up like environment that lends itself to exciting cross-departmental collaborations. Marketing, Sales, Aftersales, Finance, and the Center Development Departments all operate in close proximity to each other offering an introspective view of each group’s efforts in delivering outstanding experience to our customers and dealers.
