Mohit Arora

Mohit Arora—Executive

Circa 2006. Mohit Arora remembers he had just landed in Australia, and had started up on a job as a door to door salesman selling Tru Energy Electricity plans. From there it was a hop, skip and jump to security, where he worked with Melbourne’s Crown Casino.

“And although I found the diverse cultures in Melbourne very interesting, I knew this wasn’t something I wanted to do forever,” he says.

“I was finally given the opportunity to sell cars in 2012 when I moved to Tamworth NSW. I didn’t have a licence or know how to drive a manual car and I had never worked in the industry before, but I was determined to make a success of this job and not disappoint the people that had given me the opportunity to kickstart my career. To this day I am grateful to them for giving me the opportunity and I have never looked back,” says Arora, who in his second year at the dealership, made a conscience decision to always push himself to the next level.

“When I returned to Melbourne after three years in Tamworth, I applied for work with the Number 1 Nissan dealership in Australia. I was finally given the opportunity and I was employed with Ferntree Gully Nissan,” says Arora.

He believes that FTG Nissan has given him opportunities and a skill set that has seen him grow not only as a person but also to the Number 2 salesperson for 2016.
