Episode 5 - Meet Wayne Chevis, MDC Newcastle Branch Mgr and Assist National Sales Mgr - OFFGRID DOWNUNDER

“It comes from the heart. It’s just one of those things where we try and build relationships with people and help them on their way. And it’s hard to do if you don’t have any love or care for your product. And that’s just the thing, all our staff genuinely love what they do. I really enjoy talking to our customers and getting to know them and helping them on their journey with what they want.”

Newcastle Branch Manager and Assistant National Sales Manager for MDC Camper Trailers and Offroad Caravans

Welcome to the OFFGRID DOWNUNDER podcast and video series. We are really excited to be chatting with Wayne Chevis. And I know you’re not supposed to have favourites… but Wayne is definitely a very popular and well-loved character at MDC!

Wayne didn’t have your typical Aussie upbringing, he grew up in Kakadu National Park, and shares how his childhood experiences shaped his adventurous spirit and career path into the camping industry. He ‘ran away’ at 18 and worked as a chef in the Navy, and unfolds how he eventually found himself at MDC, where he has risen to a significant role in the company over the past four years.

The conversation highlights Wayne’s passion for the caravan industry and the importance of the customer experience at MDC. He emphasises the strong sense of family within the company and the commitment to quality and customer satisfaction – and the strong character traits that he learned in the military, which he has carried with him in his adult life. The podcast also touches on Wayne’s experiences travelling around Australia three times, including his favourite memorable camping locations including the Kimberley, and El Questro on the Gibb River Road.

Wayne discusses his personal connection to the MDC brand, team, his involvement in product development and sales team management, and even reveals his tattoo symbolising his dedication and passion to the brand! If you’ve ever met Wayne at his Newcastle showroom or at one of our shows around the country, you will be struck by his maturity, passion for the industry, and love for helping people to get out there in the right MDC caravan or camper trailer, and to really enjoy this country and embrace the same sense of adventure.

We really hope you enjoy this episode and ask that if you did, please like, share and comment below to help more people see our content and to meet characters as fun and as engaging as Wayne!

See you out there on the tracks somewhere.
