John Coker brings a wealth of experience and a passion for motoring to his role managing the accounts for Toyota and Lexus, which have long-standing partnerships with Wright Communications.  John has more than 20 years of motor industry and motorsport public relations experience and has worked with about a dozen different companies in the industry.  He also publicised the late rally driver Possum Bourne's career, travelling to Kenya, Sweden, Britain, Australia and around New Zealand for events.  He started his career as a journalist, covering general news, sports and motoring.

John has been a petrol-head ever since he attended his first motorsport event as a five-year-old in the family Studebaker.  He has competed in the Rally of NZ eight times and still rallies occasionally in an historic class Skoda 130 LR.  His most ambitious undertaking was finishing the three-week, 19,000km Round Australia event in 1995.  John also has a passion for vehicles of the two-wheel variety and is a keen road cyclist and mountain biker.

Married with two adult children, John has lived in South Auckland all his life and currently resides in Karaka.  He attended Wesley College, the school that later became famous for producing Jonah Lomu.
