My name is Don Grundy and I have being employed in the automotive industry in different capacities for over 27 years. I have held the position of New Car sales consultant, new car sales manager and now currently hold the position of Financial Service manager. For over the past four years I have had the privilege of being a part of the Ontario Hyundai Family. Meeting with customers on a daily basis and having that interaction with our past and future customers is what I enjoy most about my position here. Away from my work I try to spend as much of the summer months in or on the water with my family. Swimming and boating are activities that my wife and I both enjoy with our two grown children. In the fall and the winter months I am an avid Leaf fan. Having being born in 1964 I still haven?t seen or unfortunately was too young to remember my first Stanley Cup but I know it is coming. As I have repeated for as long as I can remember, this is the year. A resident of Ajax for over 25 years I look forward to meeting with you in or around the dealership.

Office Manager

My name is Marilyn Wilson. I have been employed at Ontario Hyundai since April 10th, 1989. I work in the administrative office. I have seen a lot of changes. When I started, Ontario Hyundai was on Taunton Rd, in Oshawa. I worked in an office trailer that was attached to the building. The trailer was very hot in the summer and very cold in the winter. There were only 15 employees. The filing was done upstairs, in a room with very little head room. Right at the top of the stairs, there was an I-beam that you had to duck underneath. One day, in a hurry, I didn?t duck. I was knocked out cold. When I came to and returned downstairs, Alvin, the parts manager, at the time, said to me ?Boy you were upstairs for an awful long time. What were you doing??. Nobody knew that I was unconscious. Our showroom was very small. It only held 2 cars. The sales reps could only show 1 car at a time. They could only open one door on one car and shut it, then open one door on the other car. Today, our showroom holds 10 vehicles and 12 desks and chairs and we still have room to walk around the vehicles. There are now about 95 employees. I have 3 grown sons, with 6 grandchildren. I have 2 grown stepdaughters with another 4 grandchildren, and last but not least, I have a 2 year old Shih Tzu, Jasper. In the summer, I spend my weekends at my trailer on Pigeon Lake, relaxing, playing euchre and socializing. I have even tried Bocce Ball. In the winter, I belong to a bowling league, even though I would rather be in Cuba.

I joined the Ontario Hyundai family in March 1996 while we were located on Taunton Rd in north Oshawa....I was the 3rd mechanic hired on the floor as the business grew back in those days. It was the first place I had ever worked where I could see cow's in a field during a road test. Since then we have moved away from the cow's and the fields and found ourselves in the center of the new car dealerships district in the Durham Region. I have been lucky to grow with this company as a technician ,shop Forman and then with the management team through out the years ....I don't get my hands as dirty as before but as part of the management I have been able to learn almost all aspects of this automotive Co. As Hyundai becomes more recognized throughout the world it has become oblivious to me and my family as we travel in the car and my 6 year old can pick out the "H" symbol on a car or the Hyundai name on a passing train car or a sign in front of a dealership, We are really here... I'm in my 19th year at Ontario Hyundai and my 28th year with Hyundai Cars, and i don't see any change in the future for growing bigger and expanding even further into the Durham Region and the world market . It is great to belong to a family values organization like Ontario Hyundai. I guess that is why we are so successful !!!! Tim Topping

My favorite thing about what I do apart from meeting great people on a daily basis, is I get to be involved in helping new and previous customers select and take delivery of their new/used vehicles, by listening to their needs and wants. My background in Greek. Although I was born in Canada, I speak the language fluently. I live in Whitby now for over 15 years and enjoy seeing many of our customers in and around Town.
