I have been in the automotive business for the past 32 years. The first 20 years with The Tom Ahl Family of Dealerships as General Manager of Tom Ahl Buick – GMC Dealership. My responsibilities included managing the total operations of the business with approximately 144 employees.
My wife Julie and I were blessed in 2005 with the opportunity to purchase the business formerly known as Ahl Under 10. We had originally leased the building on North Cable Road to Mr. Ahl, who at that time owned the business’ entities. The lease was set to be restructured in January of 2006.
I envisioned the identity of this store and helped to create its beginning along with Tom. On March 1st of 2005, Julie and I thought that we should become a larger part of managing the store’s daily operation in preparation of what the future would hold. After being there just two months, we knew that this was something that we wanted to grow. Tom saw my passion and love for the business and offered to buy out the lease early allowing Julie and myself to realize our dream.
Since June 1st 2005, our dreams of owning, operating, and directing our own future business became a reality. Julie and I are involved in the daily operation of our business hands on 100% everyday. Our business is ethically sound and will always be at the top in total customer satisfaction. We will always strive to meet our mission statement every day, “The friendship and trust of our customers with our fellow employees is our #1 goal!”
