SaleswomanWe would like to welcome our newest Saleswoman - Dakota Jager! Dakota Jager-Island Auto Sales
Dakota grew up in Souris with her parents and her cat named Little One. It was in Souris where she found her love for cars. Particularly classic cars. On Saturday mornings she would join her parents to work on "whatever needed fixin" She started by helping provide a light or a hand while her parents fixed various things, but it didn't take long before Dakota learned how to eventually fix things herself! Dakota knows how to change brakes, do an oil change, change tires etc.!
Aside from her passion of cars, Dakota has an extensive background in hospitality. She spent time in the front line where she quickly worked her way up to a Manager position. When Dakota is not working, she enjoys spending her time listening to rock music, being active and outside with her boyfriend.
We are so happy to have Dakota join our growing IAS team! She has just started up her own social media pages, please give them a follow!

Finance and Sales ManagerAndrew has over 5 years experience working in car sales with over 20 years experience working in Customer Service. He started his journey in Automotive body repair where he learned about the "ins and outs" of cars. His passion for cars continued throughout the years, and with his expertise in customer service, car sales was a no brainer for him. In his time in car sales, he achieved top sales in the preowned department. Preowned vehicles is Andrew's niche - it is what he knows and loves!
When Andrew is not working, he enjoys golfing, spending time with his son and hitting up the gym. Andrew is an easy going guy, who loves to laugh and is always up for a good joke. The air will not be stale with Andrew around, so feel free to join in on the funny banter and jokes around the office!

Social Media ManagerWe’d like to introduce you to our part-time Social Media Manager, Alicia Hegarty.
Alicia has spent the last 8 years working in family service, and it is where she is positioned full time. She also spent many of those years teaching Zumba for adults and children. She is passionate about serving her community and loves the families she works with.
Alicia has a very vibrant and outgoing personality. She is always able to bring the “fun” and energy to any environment. Alicia started to dabble in our social media to help get the business started up. This became Alicia’s niche, and it progressed naturally into consistent (and flavourful) content. When we didn’t have her around, we missed her! So we decided to officially take her on part time to do some marketing for us.
We are so happy to have Alicia with us! So please give her a warm welcome.
Detailer/Lot ManagerDonnie spent 18 years in mental health services before retiring in February. If anyone knows Donnie, you'll know he gets bored quickly and likes to keep busy. So when he heard his son (yes, his son!) was hiring a Detailer/Lot Manager, he jumped on board! Donnie takes great pride in keeping his vehicles meticulously clean. He always has his beautiful Chevy truck sparkling, with not a lick of dust on the interior.
On top of Donnie's years in mental health, he has also worked as a Manager for Betty Brite. His fondest memories are of getting to chat and connect with customers.
When Donnie is not working, he loves landscaping, chasing after his grand babies, cheering for the leafs, hitting up the beach with his wife and exercising. Donnie's exercise of choice was running for many years. He was the Race Director for the Road Runner's club and has participated in many marathons including the Red Cross Relay and the PEI marathon. So next time you are in, feel free to challenge him to a race or stop and have a chat with him!
