Whether you come to our dealership to shop for a car, bring your vehicle in for service, or just to look around for fun, chances are you’ll be greeted by this smiling face. No, he doesn’t work in every department–he simply just loves meeting people! This is just one of the many reasons Josh Chartrand has been named January’s Employee of the Month!
