Hi, I’m the General Manager for Owasco Pre-Owned Centre. I am married with two amazing kids, we have a boy and a girl that we couldn’t be prouder of! We are a very active family, so when I’m not at Owasco we are usually playing some sort of sport or I’m fixing the stuff we broke from the weekend before! My many hobbies include water sports, snowmobiling, cars and playing hockey. You might not know this, but our Owasco team here isn’t just coworkers, we are actually on an Owasco Hockey team as well! I get asked all the time… What’s your favourite Volkswagen? The answer (even though it’s hard to pick) the VW Corrado!
As far as schooling goes, I went to Georgian College & also the NADA Academy. I have been a part of the Owasco Experience for over 20 years. I have worked in almost every single department here. I’ve worked in Detailing, the Body Shop & Service Shop, at the counter as a Service Advisor, the Sales Team and everything in between. It has given me a really fun and interesting perspective now as the general manager.
My goal is that everyone who comes through Owasco Pre-Owned leaves having had a positive experience. I want Owasco to be a place where all of our customers feel like family. As the General Manager, I love meeting and getting to know all of our customers here. Feel free to email or call me whenever, I’d love to hear from you! Also, I want you to know that I am here to help! If there is anything that you need or any issues/concerns that you have, please let me know. Customer Service is a top priority here, so if there is something you aren’t fully happy with – give me a call!
I look forward to seeing you around the dealership!

“The lot King” I started my Owasco journey almost 6 years ago now where I started as a general labourer organizing the lot, cleaning cars, putting window stickers in cars, just picking up loose ends around the dealership in efforts to create the ultimate customer experience at Owasco. As I changed roles in the dealership while attending York University I began selling cars by appointment while also working on the lot. I moved my way through the dealership from inventory manager to assistant sales manager and now I am in my current role as a Sales Manager where I have been in this role for about a year and a half.
Working for a family-owned company rather than a “dealer group” the following of not only VW enthusiasts but Owasco enthusiasts is what I value most about working here. Owasco is the type of place where hard work does not go unnoticed. Acting in a customer experience-based atmosphere is what I feel separates us from the rest.
In a changing sales landscape where access to hundreds of dealerships is only a click away really all you can do to set yourself apart from the rest is to sell your service and the dealership. This is why in a management role I believe in leading by example and trying to be the hardest working guy on the sales team. At the end of the day without our customers, we are just a big parking lot.
As a member of the Owasco hockey team in my time away from work, I enjoy playing hockey, baseball, golf. I’m also a huge NFL fan. If I’m not at the golf course you can find me spending time with my friends or family.
If you are looking for a new set of wheels whether it be a new VW, a pre-owned VW, or an item from our non-VW pre-owned selection I would appreciate the opportunity to either expand or start your relationship with the Owasco team please feel free to contact me!
Fav VW has to be the GTI, it’s been so good for so long.

Everyone probably recognizes our Pre-Owned Brand Specialist Kyle since he’s been with our team for over 8 years! His favorite VW model is the Golf GTI and has been awarded the 4 year Silver award. He took Business Management in school and is VW certified. Kyle is married and has a beautiful baby girl. His hobbies include boating, wakeboarding, and hockey.
I’ve been in the car business for 7 years. I drive a VW Jetta and am very enthusiastic about the brand. I also enjoy walking my Labrador and anything sports-related. Viva Italia!
I’m an Irish Canadian who was born and raised in Whitby. I’ve been with Owasco for over 3 and a half years and love the brand. I recently got into boxing and I’m not afraid to fight for your business! I am the first person you will see when you walk in so don’t be shy to stop by and say hi!
I am my family’s third generation in the car business, so I think it’s safe to say it is in my blood. I have been in the business since 2014 and have had a variety of different roles before finding my true love, financial services. I do my best to assist our clients with their needs and to help them protect their beautiful new purchase. I graduated from Trent University with a double major in Business Administration and Psychology. I also have my certification and am a level 1 sommelier. When I’m not at Owasco you can find me at my family’s cottage or cooking up a storm with a glass of wine in hand.
