Where Are You From?
Born in Yonkers, have lived in Dutchess County most of my life.
What Drew You To The Automotive Business?
I was a bank teller and had a ”very particular” customer who owned the local Mercedes Dealership and only let me take care of him when he came into the bank. He would wait on line and let other customer’s ahead of him until I was available. I saw the ad in the paper, scheduled an interview with him and he pretty much hired me on the spot. That was 35 years ago.
What’s Your Dream Mercedes-Benz?
I’m not particular to one model Mercedes but loved the 1999 SL that I owned, and have driven an ML now for 16 years and don’t have any desire to drive anything but a Benz.
What’s Your Favorite Part About Working For Mercedes-Benz of Wappingers Falls?
My favorite part of working at Mercedes Benz of Wappingers Falls are the people who work here.
I’ve seen a lot of people come and go but have made many friends here. We are like one big family.
What Is One Thing Your Customers Should Know When Working With You?
I am a ”behind the scenes” employee and don’t get a chance to interact with customer’s on a regular basis but rest assured I am working hard for them in making sure their paperwork is processed in a timely manner and is accurate and their warranty claims get processed.
