I’ve been in the car business for almost 2 years, and I am very excited for the next chapter of my career here at Pettijohn Auto Center. I came to Pettijohn’s from a more metro-oriented Ford store, and I’m most thrilled about being able to develop long-term relationships with my customers built on trust, care, and empathy.
I grew up in King City, MO all my life, playing football, basketball, and baseball all the years I could while in high school. I entered the workforce shortly after high school, starting in residential construction which I enjoyed for about a year and a half when I decided to make a change and get into vehicle sales. I’ve always had a passion for cars, as I grew up in a Ford family, so my excitement for vehicles always came naturally. In my free time, I enjoy riding side by sides, working on my girlfriend and I’s house, and playing with our 4 dogs.
I’m very thankful for being a part of such an amazing team here at Pettijohn’s, and I look forward to developing my career, as well as, helping serve the communities and people that helped raised me.
I have been with Pettijohn for over 40 years. It has been a privilege to be part of it and to watch it grow and expand.
When I joined the dealership in 1978, it was a Ford, Lincoln, Mercury store. Later we became Chrysler, Dodge, and Jeep dealers as well. A few years later, we were happy to add the GMC, Chevrolet, and Buick lines. We can now offer our customers a wide variety of styles and choices under one roof!
It is wonderful to live in a rural community where people and values matter! We feel it is important to know our customers and what matters to them.
Buying a vehicle should not be a hassle! It should be a team effort to help our customers get the vehicle they want so they can do what they love!
I have been with Pettijohn Auto Center for almost 40 years, and it has been amazing to watch the growth in that time and 3 generations has been an honor.
I started in April of 1982 in the body shop, then working my way to the parts department, and then to the aftermarket manager, then out in the showroom as a salesman. Now I am the Pettijohn Auto Center’s used car manager. I am able to buy our used inventory and order all of our new cars on the lot!
I have been married to my beautiful wife for 35 years and we have 3 mini-me’s, Gregory, Justin, and Dereck, so if you can’t tell my wife is very lucky! Being a body shop man at heart i do still enjoy building old, classic cars as well as going to car shows, and also some of the classic Missouri stuff like bow hunting and other shooting sports.
Being a 2nd generation car salesman at Pettijohn Auto Center I have been given the unique opportunity to not only help my dad’s former customers but their kids too! Giving my customers a worry free and enjoyable car buying experience is so rewarding and makes my job that much better!
Before I was a Salesman at Pettijohn’s I actually worked in the service department as a service writer, giving me more experience to help my customers not only in sales but in service as well! I’m also a certified sales person in all 9 brands that we carry so I know the ins and outs of every brand on the lot!
I have been married to my beautiful wife for almost 30 years and we have a son who is 20 that is attending Northwest Missouri State University! My son and I are country boys through and through, we raise cattle, meat goats, put up hay and a whole bunch of other country boy stuff together! One of our favorite pastimes, and a sport my son competes in is trap shooting! I’m also a huge fan of Jeep and have recently purchased a Jeep Rubicon! I’m looking forward to tons of off-roading trips with the family and scaring the daylights out of my wife!
I have been in the car sales business for just over 1 years and I am very excited to learn more about sales, new vehicles and our customers! I originally started in sales at a dealership in the Kansas metro but I am very excited to return to my roots and develop closer relationships with my customers! I am originally from the small community of Jamesport and grew up on a farm, allowing me to really help those find their perfect utility vehicles as well as those who need a comfortable ride for the morning rush hour traffic!
Despite living in the metro area I have done all of my car servicing here as well as buying my family’s last vehicle because I knew that Pettijohn’s was a place I could trust and I am very excited to be a part of this amazing community and the Pettijohn’s family.
I am a family man at heart, I have 2 amazing children, a girl and boy who are my pride and joy along with my beautiful wife, who I have been married to since 2014. We love to spend time outdoors swimming, hunting and fishing which we will get to do more of since we moved to the rural area!
