Charl Grobler

Marketing and Product Planning Manager. Self-described petrol head, Charl grew up around vehicles of all kinds. His father was a car salesman and Charl has vivid memories of running around the dealer showroom as a young boy, admiring the shiny new cars. He’s been in the automotive industry for 14 years, worked as a salesman for four, and joined Suzuki in 2008. Charl thinks that “cars liberate people” and believes it’s completely normal to have an emotional relationship with a car… even one that isn’t yours.
