Meet Our Employee of the Month: Ryan Duffy

March 12th, 2020 by


There are a lot of moving parts when it comes to running a successful dealership, and someone that has to have knowledge of all those parts as it pertains to our vehicles is our lot manager, Ryan. He’s so hard working that you’ll likely only catch a glimpse of him as he’s continuously darting from one side of our dealership to another, and this work ethic happens to be why he’s our March employee of the month!
