My name is Michael and I am the New & Used Sales Manager here at Pickering VW.
I have always had a strong passion for the automotive world and was fortunate enough to translate that into a career 6 years ago and haven’t looked back since. I love what I do and can’t wait to come to work every day! My favourite aspect of my position is helping people find the right vehicle that fits their needs and budget best on a daily basis.
Wanting to join the VW family? Please don’t hesitate to contact me and I would love to help you out!
I’ve been in sales for just shy of 4 and a half years and in the automotive world for about 6 and a half years total.
My passion for cars has always been with me whether it’s working on my own cars or helping others get into new cars! I’m very hands-on with my work and I can answer most questions with the knowledge and experience I’ve gained over time.
New to the Brand? Come visit me at Pickering Volkswagen to become a new member of the VW family or if you’re an existing member come by for a coffee and chat!
I’ve been in the automotive industry for 8 years, and in sales for about 3. I started my sales career working for another brand, and have recently joined Pickering Volkswagen. Volkswagen has always been a brand I believed in; as my first car was a 2013 Volkswagen CC Highline. I feel in sales it is always great to sell a product you stand behind. My goal is to make sure you get great customer service, and we help you get into the right vehicle for you and your family. My job does not end when you pick up the car, that’s when it starts! If you are looking for a good deal make sure you give me a call.
I try to be very outgoing and personable and I lead an active lifestyle. I enjoy socializing and being a team player, at work and with friends. I love my new best friend, my puppy Louis. I also enjoy trying new foods and have a passion for fitness!
I started my career with Pickering Volkswagen almost 20 years ago washing cars. I have always had a love of cars and being able to be in the fast-paced industry where technology is always changing has kept that love strong. Between cleaning cars, selling parts for them, servicing them and even selling the vehicles themselves I have acquired a strong knowledge base of the industry. When I’m not working I enjoy being outdoors, camping, boating, and travelling to new places. A lot of my customers have known me for quite some time and I look forward to meeting many new Volkswagen owners for years to come.
I look forward to motivating our team and getting to know our customers on a daily basis. We’re a smaller dealership where our staff have meaningful relationships with our customers and we’ll always take the time to chat with you in each department. It’s nice to see familiar faces on a regular basis. When not at work I enjoy spending time with my family. My son Aleks joined us in February 2018 and my daughter Madelyn in April 2021 and they’re keeping my wife and I VERY occupied while our dog Jackson still confuses our kid’s toys for his own. That and socks, my dog loves socks. We love spending time outside, especially during the few months of summer we get in Canada but thankfully the basketball season keeps us occupied during the winter as we’re huge Raptors fans. My nickname is The Dominator and I’m easily spotted in the showroom by my socks which consist of bright colours, polka dots, bananas, you name it – I have it. I believe in keeping the dealership experience light and enjoyable –car ownership should be fun and I believe our staff does a great job helping with that. Come check us out and when you do make sure you stop by my office and say hi.
