Originally born and raised in Weyburn, SK, John started working at the local car dealership at the age of 18. After gaining some experience, he moved to Edmonton, AB where he met his wife, and they started their family. While in Edmonton, John acquired over 25 years of experience in different executive and management positions with several large automotive dealerships. Always one to take advantage of an opportunity, John purchased Kelowna Hyundai in early 2011, and started Buy Direct Truck Centre in September 2013. Through his leadership and with the help of his exceptional staff, Kelowna Hyundai has managed to surpass all expectations and win the prestigious 2012 & 2013 President’s Award of Merit from Hyundai Canada. Dedicated to the success of all his dealerships, John will be splitting his time between Kelowna and Maple Ridge. He is confident that Maple Ridge will also gain the status as one of the most successful Hyundai dealerships in Western Canada, in regards to customer service and sales. An avid sports enthusiast and family man, when John isn’t hard at work, he enjoys watching and playing hockey, and spending as much time as he can with his wife Trina, and their 4 children, Brandon, Jordan, Janessa, and Logan.
