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 !!!!

I have had the privilege of working at Ontario Hyundai for the past 16 plus years and a total of 27 years with Hyundai. I have watched it grow from the Pony to a whole fleet of state of the art, safe,fuel efficient and best looking vehicles on the road today. However, the most enjoyable part of working at Ontario Hyundai is the people I get to talk to everyday and the relationships you get to build. I have 3 wonderful adult "kids" and 2 beautiful and fun grand kids.
