    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.

    I am passionate, and enthusiastic to serve my customers and my community. I was raised locally in Lamoni Iowa since 1981 and have enjoyed being involved in the community in roles with the school system, recreation board member, youth sports, local grant programs, chamber of commerce and Graceland University. 

    My passions are health and fitness, spreading positivity as much as possible, continuing to always learn and my family. I believe in integrity, honesty, humility and hard work. I believe I can achieve that at Pettijohn’s because of the ownership’s philosophy, integrity and consistent decisions they make on a daily and yearly basis. Being in sales you need to believe in your product and the organization you stand behind, I believe I can do that here at Pettijohn’s! 

    I originally coached volleyball and was a college instructor at the college level everywhere from Graceland University, Benedictine College and Kansas University. I loved leading a team, building relationships, and teaching others. There are so many dynamics in a team and so many lessons and challenges that define and create the people we become in a team environment, I love it! 

    Having the opportunity to represent 9 brands with no extra dealer fees and free pick up and delivery for local service appointments I feel I have a great advantage to serve my customers better than anyone other dealership they would consider purchasing their vehicle from. My goal is the easiest, most convenient and fun car buying experience my customers have ever had. Yes that’s right, fun. I want to create an environment where my customers are enthusiastic about coming back to Pettijohn’s and feel inspired to send their friends and family to do the same.

    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!

    First and foremost, I am here to be helpful in all the ways I can to as many people I can. I honestly believe being of service to the people I interact with on a daily basis to be what most who know me would identify as “my calling.”

    I spent the better part of my twenties (from 2011 to 2020) trying to live out this desire to be of service to people as the Lead Sales Representative at Vision Upfitters in Cameron Missouri. Thanks to my time there I became aware of the importance of developing real and trusting relationships with my customers. It was so clear that who I was and how I conducted myself was just as crucial as the product I was selling.

    Taking on the position of Sales Advisor here at Pettijohn Auto Center is something I consider to be both an amazing opportunity and a great responsibility. The values and exceptional customer experience the Pettijohn family has instilled in this business for almost a century are what drew me to this place, first as a customer buying his first new car, and now as an employee.

    I currently live in Cameron Mo with my girlfriend Trisha, our three pugs (Rudy, Penny, and Izzy), and our cat (Layla). The house only slightly resembles a zoo but I wouldn’t have it any other way.

    I’m a tv and movie buff, an avid reader, and have a love for most things motorsport related. You’ll usually find me watching Formula 1 on Sundays during the season and reading articles about it during the off season.
