Tell us a little bit about you: I was born and raised in Chatham. I’m married with 3 kids, a boy and two girls. In my spare time I enjoy fishing and home renovations. Prior to coming on board at Victory Ford I worked in management in the car rental industry at several locations including Chatham, Tilbury, Leamington, and Essex, where I gained hands on experience working with all the major automotive brands and their dealers. I also helped to launch the first corporate car-sharing program in Canada, based at the Union Gas campus in Chatham. Why I work here: Shared focus on customer service, excellent facilities and top notch product. What I Love Most About My Job: Helping people find the best car for them and building strong relationships with my customers throughout the community. Why you should choose me as your FSM: Coming from a hospitality based industry my focus remains on delivering an excellent customer experience. Based on my prior experience working with other auto brands, I chose Ford because I truly believe we have the best line-up of vehicles and the highest focus on customer service in the industry. What’s your favorite Ford and why: It has to be the F150. With 50 years in a row as Canada’s #1 truck it’s hard to dispute. However, I really do believe in our full line-up of vehicles and the Fusion is a personal favourite for me to drive. It combines great looks, fuel economy and driving characteristics that strike the perfect balance between comfort and agility.

Something that people should know about Ford: Ford Motor Company is the largest family-controlled company in the world, and has been in continuous family control for over 110 years. The Community of Chatham-Kent is great because: Chatham-Kent is a community of communities, full of hard working people that all bring something different to the table. Chatham-Kent is also a great place to play outdoors, with lots lakes, rivers, beaches and provincial parks that are great for camping, boating, hunting and fishing.

When did you start working here? I’ve been at Victory Ford since 2010. Can you tell us a little bit about you? I love anything that’s Detroit – Tigers, Pistons, Wings you name it.

Whats your favourite Ford and why? I love the F-150, it’s been the number one truck for well over 50 years. You can’t beat the king. The Community of Chatham and the surrounding area is great because: My family all still lives here, 9 brothers & sisters, everyone is in the immediate and surrounding area, that’s gotta say something!When did you start working here?

The opportunity to expand into Chatham arose in 2010 and I was eager to take on the challenge. Victory Ford Lincoln joined the Lally Group on June 1st, 2010. We are now in our great new building with the best built cars in the world to choose from. Of all my years with Ford Motor Company, I’ve never been as proud of the vehicles on our lot as I am today. The addition of the Lincoln lineup to the Lally Ford family of vehicles has provided us with another opportunity to develop as a dealer. With all of the latest innovations and designs, we are ready to grow the business in the Chatham area.

With all of the changes at Ford Motor Company, at Victory Ford Lincoln and in the Chatham area, I know that one thing will never change. At the end of the day, customers will go where they are treated the best and feel appreciated. At Victory Ford, we always put the customer first. It’s the reason for our success. It has always been that way and will never change.
