More about our Directors

Kosta Kantilaftis

A passionate and driven second generation mechanic. Having opened my workshop at the ripe age of 21, the business grew to a 7 figure yearly turnover with continuous growth until it was sold in June 2019. This has allowed me to pursue other ventures and run a new mechanic business as well as teach the next generation of technicians through a part time training role.


I keep abreast of current trends by regularly attending automotive training Australia wide. I previously hosted multiple training events at my workshop for local and interstate technicians to encourage networking and promote education. Establishing The Garage Network comes from a desire to give back to our industry and help connect technicians Australia wide.

Jeff Taylor

I have been in the automotive repair industry since 1997 after leaving school in the North West of the UK.


Always having a passion for VW/AUDI iserved my time working for a busy independent workshop from apprentice to the controller. After many years I wanted to venture out and I started my own workshop. A busy local garage specialising in VW/AUDI and ECU tuning until 2017 when my Fiancé and I took the plunge to move to Sydney Australia.


I am a director of Sydney Eco Tuning. As my job allows me to travel across Sydney and surrounding areas I saw The Garage Network an excellent way for workshops to network.

Peter Leondis

From an early age, I was exposed to all things mechanical, being led into the workshop environment as a child by my father Leo. Kensington Brake And Mechanical Service was acquired by Leondis Automotive in 2012, a unique modern workshop, equipped with the latest in diagnostic software and workshop tools.


The workshop moved to the larger premises at Robert Street Rozelle, which has seen strong growth . In 2019, the Company started its second shop, Sutherland Automotive. I have attributed much of this growth to key, core values, and has instilled these in company policies, processes, and the extended team.


I believe that these core values have formed the foundation of the company and will continue to be the cornerstone of future development.
