    Sales Manager

    “The lot King” I started my Owasco Volkswagen journey almost 6 years ago now where I started as a general labourer organizing the lot, cleaning cars, putting window stickers in cars, and just picking up loose ends around the dealership in efforts to create the ultimate customer experience at Owasco Volkswagen. As I changed roles in the dealership while attending York University I began selling cars by appointment while also working on the lot. I moved my way through the dealership to inventory manager to assistant sales manager and now I am in my current role as a Sales Manager where I have been in this role for about a year and a half.

    Working for a family-owned company rather than a “dealer group” the following of not only VW enthusiasts but Owasco Volkswagen enthusiasts is what I value most about working here. Owasco Volkswagen is the type of place where hard work does not go unnoticed. Acting in a customer experience-based atmosphere is what I feel separates us from the rest.

    In a changing sales landscape where access to hundreds of dealerships is only a click away really all you can do to set yourself apart from the rest is to sell your service and the dealership. This is why in a management role I believe in leading by example and trying to be the hardest-working guy on the sales team. At the end of the day without our customers, we are just a big parking lot.

    As a member of the Owasco hockey team in my time away from work, I enjoy playing hockey, baseball, and golf. I’m also a huge NFL fan. If I’m not at the golf course you can find me spending time with my friends or family.

    If you are looking for a new set of wheels whether it be a new VW, a pre-owned VW, or an item from our non-VW pre-owned selection I would appreciate the opportunity to either expand or start your relationship with the Owasco Volkswagen team please feel free to contact me!

    Fav VW has to be the GTI, it’s been so good for so long.

    Sales Manager

    I have been at Owasco Volkswagen 6+ years, and 20+ years of sales experience.

    I take pride in what I do, and joining VW Owasco Volkswagen was my best career move I ever did. Walking into this dealership feels like my second home, and I always ensure my loyal or new VW customers feel the same way. My goal is and always will be to ensure my customer’s transactions are as hassle-free as possible. I have a strong loyalty base, and I thank you for putting that trust in me over the years.

    Now a little bit about me. I was born and raised in Europe (Croatia) and VW is the only vehicle I ever drove. I’ve been married for 20 years to the best husband I could ask for, who is also my high school sweetheart and we have two wonderful busy boys who are turning into teenagers. Being so busy, I don’t get much free time for myself, but when I do, my passion is watching SOCCER (I am a huge fan) or baking.

    Looking forward to seeing you in the showroom, feel free to contact me via phone or email at any time.

    I’m Mike a.k.a Magic Mike, I’ve been with Owasco Volkswagen since early 2019 and I’m loving every minute of it! I’ve been in sales and customer service all my life growing in a home where real estate was always spoken about at the dinner table. I started marketing for my father’s brokerage at the age of 11 and was very successful at it.

    Once finished at Seneca College I started my own marketing company and did that for about 10 years while expanding it and then selling to move on to work for one of the largest banks in Canada. Started off at TD Bank as a customer service rep and worked my way up to hiring manager and facilitator, but in the meantime, I won numerous awards for sales, customer service, and CEI (Customer Experience Index) for the next 15 years.

    But I felt something was missing! I loved helping people but being a major Automotive enthusiast I thought dealing with cars and customers was my calling! I have a few cars of my own… but I’ve always had a special love for the Volkswagen brand. I’ve owned a bunch in my life starting with the 1st car that was a hand-me-down… my 1977 VW Scirocco in black was a 16-year-old boy’s dream. I loved that car! After that, I had a beautiful 1987 GTI 16V in Ruby red pearl!

    Life is great and I`m here to help out anyone looking to get into a new ride at a great price!

    Come in and see me!

    General Manager

    Hi, I’m the General Manager for Owasco Volkswagen. I am married with two amazing kids, we have a boy and a girl that we couldn’t be prouder of! We are a very active family, so when I’m not at Owasco Volkswagen we are usually playing some sort of sport or I’m fixing the stuff we broke from the weekend before! My many hobbies include water sports, snowmobiling, cars and playing hockey. You might not know this, but our Owasco Volkswagen team here isn’t just coworkers, we are actually on an Owasco Hockey team as well! I get asked all the time… What’s your favorite Volkswagen? The answer (even though it’s hard to pick) is the VW Corrado!

    As far as schooling goes, I went to Georgian College & also the NADA Academy. I have been a part of the Owasco Volkswagen Experience for over 20 years. I have worked in almost every single department here. I’ve worked in Detailing, the Body Shop & Service Shop, at the counter as a Service Advisor, the Sales Team and everything in between. It has given me a really fun and interesting perspective now as the general manager.

    My goal is that everyone who comes through Owasco Volkswagen (whether it be for sales, service or parts) leaves having had a positive experience. I want Owasco Volkswagen to be a place where all of our customers feel like family. As the General Manager, I love meeting and getting to know all of our customers here. Feel free to email or call me whenever, I’d love to hear from you! Also, I want you to know that I am here to help! If there is anything that you need or any issues/concerns that you have, please let me know. Customer Service is a top priority here, so if there is something you aren’t fully happy with – give me a call!

    I look forward to seeing you around the dealership!
