Nick is our GM for good reason. With over 30 years in the auto industry, his attention to customer needs is superior. In fact, Nick probably sells more cars from referrals every month than an average salesperson. As the leader here, Nick has an open door policy with all of his employees and recognizes that the success of Gresham Subaru comes from positive, fun group effort. He says, "I have spent the last 17 years as the GM here, and I am very proud of our TEAM!"
Nick recognizes that need to balance his time. When he is not selling cars, he is spending time with his family, cheering them on at various school events. Or, when he's not in the office, Nick might be out hitting a golf ball, fishing the Columbia, or hunting somewhere in western Washington.
For the last four years, Ivan has headed up our Internet Sales Department. In fact, originally, Ivan was the department, managing it single-handedly. Now, our Internet Sales Department has expanded to four full time employees! But don't think that Ivan is sitting in front of a computer screen all day. He prefers getting out on the floor, sharing a joke, a smile, and a laugh. Ivan has over 30 years of experience in the auto industry that have taken him all over Oregon: from the Willamette Valley to Newport to the High Desert and to our very own Gresham Subaru. IVAN KNOWS CARS!
Ivan knows what families want too: play time! With six kids, Ivan has seen his share of high school football and basketball games; but fun goes way beyond the bleachers. When summer arrives, it's all about the outdoors, and Ivan and his family are on the water with wakeboard in tow, enjoying one of the Northwest's spectacular lakes. Ivan also enjoys fishing, golfing, and riding his big ol' Harley.
