    I began with General Motors in 1992. In 2009 Tom & Mike Harris reached out and extended an opportunity for me to help manage Harris Oceanside Parksville. I accepted and moved to beautiful Vancouver Island. I am fortunate to have the opportunity to work beside this great group of people. The entire Harris Oceanside Team do their best everyday to create a positive experience, buying and/or servicing for our customers and as a result the dealership has grown. I am proud to be a partner with Mike in Harris Oceanside GM and prouder of our team!

    Howdy!

    I joined Harris Oceanside Chevrolet Buick GMC Ltd on January 6th 2006 as a Lot Attendant, before being moved indoors to assist in Service/Parts. In April 2006 I was offered a position in Sales and have not looked back since. In 2012 I was promoted to Fleet Sales before becoming the the Fleet Sales Manager in 2014 where I have been ever since. I really get a great kick and enjoyment from Fleet Sales with many very happy clients. It is a real privilege to do what I do everyday! I have many friends here at Harris Oceanside GM, we work as a team everyday, i would be lost without my awesome work colleagues!

    In my spare time I enjoy cycling on my Mountain Bike, as well as walking with my two best friends on four paws… Rory and Fraser my West Highland White Terrier Dogs (Westie) I have so much fun playing at the park with them. I watch Soccer, Man Utd red for 40 years and McLaren F1 Orange for 40 Years. I’m also enjoying the outdoors with photography and video, learning new skills everyday.

    I would be delighted to have the opportunity to earn your valuable business, with over 16 years selling GM vehicles I love the product. I look forward to meeting you and showing you the great product from Chevrolet, Buick and GMC.

    I fell into the automotive business in 2004 when I bought myself a 1986 Chevrolet Camaro IROC Z28. As a Technician, I love the challenge of fixing vehicles and getting people back on the road. I play guitar but also spend my time away from the dealership doing; lots and lots of yard work, mountain biking and kayaking.
