I have worked in the automotive business since 1975. Starting as a “dealer kid”, I worked on and off at the family store through to 1981. After university, I went back to the dealership for several years and worked in various positions. From 1992 to 2004 I worked for Reynolds and Reynolds in the Technical Assistance Centre and later as a Consultant with their Professional Services group. Combining a degree in Computer Science with this automotive experience provided me with the unique ability to work in-dealership and create programs to manage the dealership.
